An important part of the Thursday community center is early childhood stimulation for those children not yet in school.  As Rosita and Ana worked with the moms and children in Popabaj, they learned the moms didn’t not connect with their children in typical ways which hindered the early steps of development.  So Ana and Rosita are working with the children to help bridge some of the gaps, but they are also working with the moms to encourage interaction every day of the week.  God works through relationships and the children and moms are all learning and interacting in new ways.
