(Pretend like you’re reading this on Sunday evening)
We had a wonderful day reconnecting and playing with the boys. It’s so refreshing to see these precious faces again. We started the day off with Todd and Squid sharing their testimonies, and Ray concluding the morning with an analogy of striving to win the World Cup. He explained how believers are to strive together to pursue Christ. It was a phenomenal and encouraging message.
We had a wonderful time getting to know these guys again. Some people had personal one-on-one time with the older kids and while others just played with the youngins. It’s amazing to see how open these guys are when we purposefully pursue and engage them.
After a long day of loving on the boys, the Directors, we look forward to serving this week in whatever capacity the Lord has in store. Our teams will be focusing on a few different areas. Each morning we will start the day by having chapel with Ninos de la Luz Christian School. The chapel lesson will relate to the medical lesson that will be taught later that day. For example, tomorrow the medical group will be discussing nutrition. So in chapel, they will discuss how the Word nourishes our soul. Meanwhile, we will have a group painting the new dorm with a primer/sealer combo. After chapel, a group will go out into the schools of the local community and have a Vacation Bible School (VBS) for the children there.
Please keep our team in your prayers this week as we seek to serve Ninos de la Luz and the people of Armenia Bonito. Pray that we our presence would be helpful, not a hindrance; that we would continue to develop deeper relationships with the boys at Ninos de la Luz; and that ultimately the Lord’s name would be glorified through us. We love you guys and greatly appreciate your support!
