Tuesday, July 16 - Zapatillos de Dios is sponsored by the church of San Juan Bautista and distributes sneakers to children in need around Boquete.  The next distribution will be at Casa Esperanza on Sept. 21.  There are 220 children there on a daily basis and the organization currently has just 80 pairs of shoes.  Come hear how you can help put shoes on the little feet of Boquete. Bill McAbee and Donna O’Brien will tell you about Las Zapatillas de Dios, God’s sneakers.

 Donna O’Brien and her husband Ken came to Boquete on vacation 12 1/2 years ago.  Ken was already retired and Donna was looking for the right place that would allow her to be able to do.   She found it in Boquete.  They bought a house while here on vacation and finally were able to leave Washington state for good one year later.  When asked if they like Boquete they laughingly reply, “We must!  We’re still here!”  Donna comments that what has made Boquete special is the amazing people they have met here.

 Bill McAbee and his wife Anne vacationed in Boquete in 2010 while researching several future retirement destinations in Central America. Their time table to relocate to BQT was accelerated dramatically by an unexpected sale of their ranch residence in Colorado. Now in their 8th year full time, they enjoy equally spending time with Panamanians and Expats.  Bill has been teaching English class at the library for 3 years.  

    Moderator:  Louise Orr
