I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I sure did. My family is even more wonderful than I remembered.
If y'all don't have a reputation among children of giving out stickers, I would highly recommend developing one. I started carrying around stickers about a month ago becuase it's a fun way to contact - "Oh, your child is so adorable! Can I give her a sticker?" And then the kid gets really excited and it's a lot easier to talk to the parent. And now all the kids in Adjuntas know I give out stickers. Christmas Eve we were contacting (endlessly - no one wants an appointment these days) and we passed the street children of la calle del agua and one little girl screamed, "Quiero un sticker!" and I yelled back, "Quieres un sticker?" SWARM. It's so fun.
Keep spreading the word! It doesn't matter if you have a little black nametag or not - we're all missionaries here.
