The activities of the Home of the Mother start up again for the new year of 2013-2014 in Móstoles, Madrid (Spain).
In Móstoles (Madrid), after the summer break, we have begun again a new year with more activities than ever. During this last month of October we have had get-togethers for children, families, and the first one for boys.
On October 19th we held a get-together for girls, to which 30 girls came in all, as well as the group of monitors who helped us with the little girls. We did many things throughout the day: archery, Philippine dance, very fun games, a beautiful time with the Lord that we prepared with songs and crafts and, to finish off, a delicious "american" snack: a sandwich of marshmallows toasted over hot embers with chocolate. It was a very full day.
Besides these monthly get-togethers we have begun activities for girls who are over 13 years old every Saturday. They start at 4 p.m. with a study circle, that is to say, an interesting meeting where we discuss a variety of topics. We continue with a time of prayer and games, and then finish with guitar and English classes. An intense afternoon which is at the same time formative and fun.
The following weekend, Saturday October 26th, we had a family encounter. Taking advantage that the Servant Brothers of the Home of the Mother came to attend this encounter for the lay members, at the same time there was a get-together for boys. The boys had a great time, as well as the adults. It is an immense joy to be witnesses of how Our Mother, the Blessed Virgin, works in the souls that let her. Some testimonies that we heard during the meeting of the adults made us give thanks to the Lord and Our Mother for what they do around us.
The next get-together for girls in Móstoles will be held on Saturday, November 16th. The adults and families will have their get-together in our house of Barcenilla, in Cantabria, on November 8-10.
