90 degrees, no problem!
First day of ministry in Malacatan was hot.
Children’s team started the day with a flat tire. Our drivers are some of the most talented people on our team. They changed it in less than 10 minutes!
We went to one school in the morning and one school in the afternoon. Some of these children heard the saving Gospel message of Jesus for the very first time. Jake hung out with a pig and then shared his faith story [See picture]! Sophie shared in the afternoon. Even with the heat, this children’s team pushed through it to perform, play and love these students in the name of Jesus! Over 100 children made decisions for Christ today! Praise God.
The service team is building a children’s play place from scratch! (This is not an IKEA assembly)
The medical team saw the most patients today on this trip so far! The clinic is in a turf soccer field with a tin roof.
The sports and drama team taught a clinic and then played 11 on 11 all day. They are wiped out…but happy! (I sent a surprise order of Gatorade to them this afternoon!)
The mime team performed today and continues to get better and better. They will perform and have a clinic tomorrow.
The night ended with a youth worship service. We jumped, clapped and raised our hands with our new Guatemalan friends and their worship band. Pastor Ergil shared a message using the verse 1 Corinthians 15:33. “Bad company corrupts good character.” Then the Guatemalans prayed over each of our students and leaders and the pastor challenged us to open up our hearts to Jesus. It was a powerful moment for our team.
It’s a full day of service tomorrow with an outreach soccer game at night. The drama will perform and I will preach an evangelistic message. Pray for us!
Pray for strength, health and the Spirit and His Word to keep changing our lives so we look more like him.
Have a great day!
