Lots of people ask what we at Casa Shalom do for church - do we have church at Casa Shalom or do we take all 60+ kids out to church? Well, the answer is a little of both. Some Sundays, we hold church at the orphanage and other Sundays, we take the children to a church in the area. Tonight, we took the teenagers to a youth service at a local church. The church cooked a meal for us before the service and gave out presents to the kids. Enjoy the photos from tonight's service.
