She Stole My Heart


...how...

Hungry the Huaycan community is in welcoming the Light and Leadership Initiative (LLI) leaders and volunteers;

Thirsty for learning are the Huaycan children;

There are no strangers in the LLI home in Huaycan, as our welcoming door is always open and filled with family and friends, old and new;

Wonderfully quickly social masks are stripped, leaving you clothed only in love and a desire to help;

Sick your heart will feel when departing Huaycan as you realize your next visit is just too far away;

Imprisoned by loneliness you feel at the end of each day when your new friends and family leave the LLI home after experiencing so much joy with them.
