Every day has its own expression of God’s blessings and were we each to ask one another, each of us would have a different moment to celebrate. At the dental clinic yesterday it would have been the joy of 31 patients who received dental care. That included 53 extractions and 8 fillings! Yikes! The dental clinic rocked the house!
Today we entered the classrooms and were given an opportunity our team has never been given: permission to do VBS
for 6 days, about 120 children/day AND a special request to teach about the faith. The children were highlights of this day as they sang, learned a prayer and were given Romans 10:9 as a verse to hold. Sarah’s amazing creative gifts delighted the children as the story of the Lost Sheep from the gospel of Matthew came to life.
The trusses went up and the construction team worked so hard today in very hot conditions. A lot holding, waiting, and placing of the framework so the roof can happen. We have great workers on our team in every respect…willing souls whether drilling or singing with hand motions (Sarah is leading, remember) and joyful all the way. Thomas fed us well tonight and survived a market fight breakout between two women. He wasn’t sure what it was about but it evolved into flying vegetables and fruits so Aldofo said, “time to go!” All in a days work….right?
Please continue to pray that we will be faithful to the opportunities the Lord is giving us here. Pray for safety, health and teachable spirits…ours as much as every child and adult of Guatemala we meet. We are humbled and blessed to be here. We are receiving messages of prayer on facebook and here. We can’t thank you enough. There is very little time to type and do pictures so but your messages mean a lot and we appreciate them! All is well.
