My favorite part about this week has been feeding the homeless. First, we all worked together to put the bags of food together. Next, we loaded the food in Kurt's truck. Then, we all rode in the back of the truck (I never get to do that in the U.S!) and went around and handed food to the homeless from the back of the truck.
When we saw the people on the streets it made me feel sad because they have nothing at all. We saw many women and children and that was hard to see. In El Salvador the homeless don't receive help from the government and there are no shelters for them to stay in.
Last night, I saw a lady walking toward the truck who had her arms folded across her chest and she looked very cold, so I asked my dad if I could give her my jacket. After I gave it to her, and after she got her food, she put it on and smiled and waved at me. The woman looked very pleased. That made me feel very loving!!
