Dear Family and Friends,
Our angel, Makaela, is celebrating her 25th birthday in Heaven with Jesus. We know she is smiling, laughing, and living eternally with peace in Heaven. Although our hearts continue to ache without physically experiencing Makaela’s beautiful smile, contagious laugh, and thoughtful ways, we know that Makaela’s spirit is always present. She lives in all of us, reminding everyone to focus on peace, joy, gratitude, and unconditional love.
Our family has been praying for a way to continue Makaela’s spirit of giving and love. Our prayers were answered when we were given the opportunity to work in conjunction with St. Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Church, Jacyntha Shaw (Chair of Christian Concerns at St. Teresa of Calcutta), and The Little Sisters of St. Francis, to build the Makaela Senfleben Health Room at St. Josephine Bakhita Orphanage in Nambale, Kenya. This health room will provide vaccinations, wellness check-ups, and emergency treatment for children in need of medical care.
