Three Kings Celebration at Casa Hogar Benito Juarez!

El Dia De Reyes, the Epiphany, remembering the day when the Three Wise Men following the star to Bethlehem arrived bearing their treasured gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh for the Baby Jesus is celebrated in Mexico on January 6 each year.  At Casa Hogar we celebrated this holiday with the children much like Christmas celebrations in the U.S. with family and friends.  We had inflatable games, Domino's pizza, piƱatas filled with special treats, and gifts for each child.  This was a very special time for these kids and they were so excited.  The inflatable games were a blast.  We even had a mechanical bull.  It is an honor to serve along the directors, Fran and Carol Marin, and their staff at this special place. 

A huge THANKS goes out to FBC Oxford, Mississippi for providing nearly 70 kids with new clothes, pants and shirt/sweater for each child at Casa Hogar!
