I know I have talked about Nalleli in a previous post, but here is a refresher. She is the daughter of Maira, who is the assistant at the preschool in Mata Gorda. Nalleli is 10 years old and goes to Doulos, an English emersion school here in Jarabacoa. She is also best friends with Pricila, our niece. Her mom asked me if she could come to my house once a week to practice English since she is struggling a little bit at school. So last week she came over with Pricila and we had a grand time! After doing homework, practicing English, painting nails, etc, we had lots of fun making pizza together and then watching "The Princess Bride".

I love Nalleli and refer to her as "mi hija potiza" (my artificial daughter) and she often slips up and starts calling me "tia" (aunt) when Pricila is around.

Please pray with me for Nalleli, that the time we spend together will be beneficial for her and that she will improve at school as well.
