Below are reflections written by great Friend and sponsor, Terry Sechrist, from the Southwest region who recently visited NPH Mexico.
I feel blessed to have been introduced to FOTO/NPH through friends (Jill and Brian Hetherington), and become a Godparent in 2006. Annual visits are a source of inspiration and personal renewal witnessing the transformation of young lives with love, diligent care, strategic and judicious planning and oversight to provide the children with optimal opportunities in life and the development of life skills from an early age.
One sees children and teens who are flourishing in a safe, secure and loving environment. Miacatlan has a special and unique spirit that is immediately evident upon arrival at the home. I carry that memory each year until my next visit.
First hand interaction with the children and volunteers increases my hope, optimism and commitment to a better future for all these children. I am proud to partner with FOTO/NPH’s dedicated team to nurture spiritual and personal development of each child and help with operational expenses. I would encourage other Godparents and friends to visit the NPH homes to get to know the children personally at a deeper level and appreciate what the organizations are accomplishing with your financial help and prayers.
