Local family returns to Peru

The quit project helped raise about $5,000 of the $9,000 goal.

They are also raising money and accepting items to fill the list of newborn, personal hygiene, family and first aid kits as well as playroom and literacy materials.

Having been asked about a large Sunflower painting that hung in the dining room, House went on to reveal that it had come from a recent rummage sale at the Three Steeples Church in Champlain.

When nobody bought it, House figured it was meant for her to have, perhaps as just one more sign that she and her family are meant to go to the orphanage in carrying on the memory of Scott.

About the Sunflower Orphanage:

The Southern Cross Humanitarian mission is to provide homes and opportunity to the street children in such places as Columbia, Ecuador, Honduras and Cuba.

The Sunflower home now includes homes for 88 children, a library, housing for medical professionals and interns, dental and medical facilities, greenhouses, a dairy and water treatment.

This next mission will be a continuation of the construction as well as plans to erect a drop-in center where children can come to get nourishment, attention, a place to bathe and clothing.
