When our first day of Vacation Bible School was done on Monday we wondered how we would survive 3 more days of it. Now, we are wondering how we will survive without it. The stories will be coming. There are too many to write here.
Lots of electrical work happened over the week which kept Will busy and out of trouble. New lights, updated unsafe wiring, new outlets and covers and something with the panel that a non electrician can explain. All work done will help this congregation spread the Word. Thanks be to God.
Our ministry money extended the patio at the church. It doubled the size! The work was labor intensive, but with the help of several local men, it’s nearly complete. Now Pastor Tulio and his congregation have more space to do the work of God.
With part of the money we raised, we were able to purchase beans, flour, sugar and other pantry staples to fill twenty food baskets. We then walked to houses in the community to deliver these gifts. The real gift, however, was spending time in the homes of the people, learning their stories. We laughed, we cried, we prayed and made meaningful connections with the beautiful people of Libertad all while doing God’s work.
We are all still processing our experiences from the week in Libertad and will for weeks to come. But now for snorkeling and sun!
