The Idlewild Foster Care Annual Picnic, a part of February Month of Love activities for foster families was a huge success and a joy for all.
First and foremost, God blessed us with a beautiful day, clear and cool but not either cold of hot, a perfect Florida winter day!
Second, with the help of our friends at Redeeming Love Foster Closet and Once Upon a Child, we went from 80 in attendance in 2022 to 163 on Saturday!
Third, with the fantastic food from South Florida Catering, there was food for all and extras to take home for many.
We had balloons from the Lamberts.
We had face painting from Fabulous Fuentes that was even good enough for Ercel to get painted.
We had Uncle Charlie and many, many Carlitos, and Isaac even presented to gospel and a young man accepted Christ.
And we had other friends from ministry including Belinda Leto from Celebrate Birthdays, Esther Dupree from Redeeming Love Foster Closet, and a host of volunteers who generously gave of their time and energy to make for a blessed day.
Thank you all for your part in a great day!
