God has been teaching me through this trip that I’m suppose to do everything for Him despite difficult people or situations that are out of my control. We are called to Glorify Christ and do everything with a joyful heart. Boy is that hard for me at times. I have no problem admitting that I’m a stubborn gal who believes in justice and treating people with respect. I know I have failed and have probably frustrated some of you but my goal for when I come home in a few days is letting God be God. He is the one who will bring justice to any situation. I want to serve with joy.
Saturday we got to help out with a mobile vbs. This truck travels to different communities and presents a Sunday school lesson and skits with games. The truck turns into a stage. The kids that we saw were lethargic. Bless their hearts. Because they dont eat hardly anything They have no energy to play. That and because of their family situations some just struggle with depression ad hopelessness.
Sunday I got to play with some kiddos. I wa ms in charge of the 2-3 year old class for Sunday school. After that we were blessed with an amazing lunch made by Erica who is our missionary contact. We got to just relax and fellowship with her and her host family. After lunch we went back to the brenes house and pulled weeds for them.
Today we worked with saddle back church. We went to an orphanage to play with kids. Kinda weird bc we weren’t allowed to touch them. They seemed to enjoy being kids running around with us. While we were there and police officer brought back a boy who had escaped the home. My heart broke to pieces knowing that he wasn’t happy. He was throwing a bad fit web he got back. Throwing shelving on the ground and trashing the place. They had to hold him down til he calmed down. Pray for him. That he feel the hope if the lord and feel loved by the adults in his life.
After that we headed to an area to plant trees. When we were shoveling we noticed that the ground was filled with shards of glass and trash. It was crazy to me to see how deep it all went.
Can’t believe that we are at the end of our trip. In 5 days I will be back home. I Can’t wait to tell you all about it. Love you all.
