Hola friends & family!!! We are back in civilization after two days in the rural town of Villetta. We stayed at a retreat center for pastors and missionaries nestled in the mountains...it was beautiful!!! While we were there, we shared at a local church service to encourage local Christians to reach their community and we also did work with children in a refugee community. The kids from this community live in some of the worst poverty any of us have ever seen. We gave out candy, balloons, water, and lots of hugs & smiles:) The whole team did a wonderful job being energetic and loving.
Now we are back in various suburbs of Bogota for the remainder of our time here- we will be working with local churches, presenting the gospel in parks and public schools and loving, loving, loving like crazy!!! Our whole team has been AMAZING an we have had no major problems. Here are some prayer requests you can continue to lift up...
- Energy and focus
- Purposeful use of time
- Health and stamina
- Andrew May injured his finger in Villetta- pray for quick healing. It is not serious, but it was very painful for him. He is back to playing guitar and everything, but we still want his body to heal quickly.
- GOD'S WILL TO BE DONE IN US AND THROUGH US- for us to have His eyes and His heart for the people here
- PRAISE HIM!!! He has done wonderful things while we have been here- HE IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.
