ANSWERED PRAYERS: NANNIES!
One of our biggest problems has been staffing needs at Sonshine. It has been even a bigger problem as we have added children to our Sonshine family, and the result is that we need more staff. We have been puzzled by the fact that no one seemed interested in working at Sonshine. So, we prayed & analyzed our problem from all angles. We then made a plan. We hired an announcer car to visit all the neighborhoods in San Felipe with a recorded advertizement. We announced our wages and benefits. People started calling for interviews. After hiring four new staff members, we were able to shorten all the staff's work day to 8 hour days. Praise God!! Hopefully this will help our fatigued workersget that smile back. God has a plan...sometime we simply need to seek his wise counsel.
Another recent blessing has been new Volunteers stepping up to help at Sonshine Hacienda. What a blessing this has been. We have volunteers working with our toddler age children in the mornings. We also have volunteers helping with driving the children to school, helping with cooking one day a week, working two days a week in our new clothing storage room...WOW. Showers of blessing!!
