Today we spent more time doing our primary mission-loving on kids. In addition the ladies cleaned and organized the kitchen, bathroom and closets of the apartment we are staying in. The men began building Dottie’s long awaited shelves, and installed a vent for the water heater in the new career girls’ dorm. We’re pleased that we have completed all the tasks on our work assignment list, plus many more, and still have managed to bond with so many children. It will be hard to leave them tomorrow, and I believe this has been an experience none of us will ever forget.
Tonight the team from Tennessee was in charge of the worship service, which featured drama, music, and the Word. This team has also been going out to the villages to present the gospel while they are here. The most unusual aspect of tonight’s service was the use of white-gloved hands and black light to illustrate a song-in Spanish of course. Only the older children attended, and they loved it. The Bible story was David and Goliath, and how God helps us overcome the Goliaths we face in life-a particularly appropriate subject for these children, considering the backgrounds of poverty, abuse and neglect that most of them have come from.
