A Letter from a Salvadorian Government Official!
All Blessings is honored to partner with Kurk Ackermann and his family in our orphan outreach work in El Salvador. Kurt is the founder of the non-profit organization, HIS CHILDREN, which serves at-risk children living in orphanages and on the streets of El Salvador. Our July orphan outreach team partnered with Kurt and HIS CHILDREN to organize the quinceanera for 43 girls (from a government center). Kurt recently received the following letter from the Director of Child Welfare Services:
San Salvador July 11th, 2012
Dear Mister Ackermann,
Wishing abundant blessings to you, we write you in this opportunity to thank you for coming and celebrating the 15th birthdays. We hope that God continues favoring you in all the projects you do. We want from our heart to thank all the people who unconditionally joined this great effort. We are asking God that He can protect you for the rest of your lives, we want you to know that all of you have a special place in our hearts.
Thank you for making possible our dream of each and every one of us. It was a wonderful experience that we will never forget, and we will take all those moments of preparations, make-up and dress selection, the accessories, the perfume, the shoes and the transportation, the guys helping us walk to the event, the delicious food, the cake the encouraging words the dance, all this has been engraved in us.
We will always continue to pray that all of you return safely to your country and the ones that are staying that they can receive great privileges from our God.
With all our hearts,
Jose Alvaro Leon Canizales (Psychologist and Government Representative)
Wow! What a powerful letter! It was such a privilege, honor and blessing for our team to be part of such an unforgettable event. We will never forget the beautiful, young women that we met during our quinceanera experience. We are also grateful that the quinceanera allowed HIS CHILDREN to receive greater favor and respect for the government that they are called to serve. That's what it's all about!
