María Luisa

Maria Luisa comes in once a week as our seamstress, as well as having the joy of keeping us all laughing, both which she does well! She is a wonder on the sewing machine and can make something beautiful out of any piece of cloth. “Don’t throw away any of your clothes!” she says with a laugh. When asked what she sees as the most important contribution Alto Refugio provides, she says: “We use the donations for many things – and they are all very important, but I think just to have a place to come and rest and have breakfast or lunch makes the biggest difference. We are anxious for the day that Alto Refugio will be open the entire week instead of just three days, because the presence of Pastor Dave in the hospital helps a great deal. For those admitted in the hospital visits come very far in between. So thats why we’re waiting for it to be open each day of the week. Oh, and any clothes you don’t use we can transform and adapt… that’s why I’m here! So don’t throw anything away!”
