Farewell to Casa Ronald

Today was a sad and happy day. Casa Ronald had a farewell party for us with all the residents of the house. There was traditional Brazilian folk music along with a demonstration of a dance called Capoeira, a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music, it was developed in Brazil mainly by African descendants with native Brazilian influences. It was great to see our students dancing with the residents and to see all the smiles on their faces. It is these small things that make a difference in their lives even if for only a moment.
