Service Work in Libertad

We have experienced so many new things it is hard to believe that it is only Tuesday.

On Sunday morning, our group was leading Sunday School and we were ready for them. Our friend Elvis (his real name is Esly) showed up in the rain and hung out. More kids came in as the rain slowed and it was a great start to the week. The kids were excited to play games and talk about the Bible Story. It was a good start to kids ministry for the week.

Sunday worship service was at 7pm. So different and inspiring. One lady from the church had her birthday that day. The entire congregation sang and then lined up to congratulate her and give her a hug. The group thought that was cool and made them feel a part of the place.

Let’s  just say Monday was busy. There was a trip to Corozal for food basket supplies, the beginning of concrete and roof extension at the church, visiting neighbors to invite them to VBS that afternoon, packing food baskets, electrical repairs at the church, visiting the local school, leading VBS with 93 energetic kids and then leading youth night that evening.

On top of that, each moment is filled with hot humid air, learning new names, being immersed in a new culture, seeing the poverty in Libertad and interpreting a mix of English, Spanish and Creole language.  This group is doing an amazing job of juggling it all and accomplishing the task that they were given. We already have lots of stories to tell!

And we experienced coconuts…..straight from the tree, opened with a machete to drink the milk and then sliced open to eat the insides.  What a treat!
