A Beautiful Reunion- click here to watch the video

Years ago Kelly and Dave Wichman constructed a home for little Jose in Guatemala. Jose has been asking each month, when his family receives a visit & food package, when will Dave ever be able to come visit him again, he is sad & misses him. If you recall their story, God gave Dave & Jose a very special bond because of similar losses (suicide of loved ones). Just the other day Jose told his mother he had a dream that “Grandpa Dave” came to him and hugged him and told him he loved him. Dave has been dreaming of when his next visit to Guatemala should be. This was the day of dreams coming true for both of them. Please watch this video- there is not a dry eye in the house. Jose was told Shawn was waiting in the house. Because of his excitement he missed seeing Dave right away. But oh boy when Jose saw Dave…..
