I picked the title because I am sure we all sweated off 2 or more pounds today!!!
|Our hotel surrounds a beautiful courtyard.|
Today, we went back to Agua Agria, the same village we worshipped at yesterday.
We have a connection with Timoteo, a minister, who is from this village. He know longer lives there, but he returns often to preach in the church and he is always trying to help his people there.
We had several projects lined up today and I'll just list them here:
1. Medical clinic (Today,Terry told us that Dr. Jorge ran the 400 meter in the 1968 Olympics!)
2. Clothing distribution
3. Build a new playground
4. Make skylights in the roof of the church (there is no electricity)
5. Soccer camp/clinic
6. Put up soccer nets
8. Ladies Bible class
9. Gospel meeting in the evening
|Dr. Jorge is in blue. His wife and two boys are in front of him.|
We arrived around 10 am and worked straight through with our many jobs until the meeting was supposed to begin at 5.
|She is happy about her "new" clothes!|
|The school has new banos! (bathrooms)|
|Jenny is loving on a baby!|
The big difference is that in the USA most of us don't work outside all day when it's that hot. The other difference is we all have central heat and air. Today, we all either worked in the school or outside under the sun, both were hot.
|We had a surprise, the mayor (along with a news' crew) came to thank us for the work we were doing!!|
I worked in the clothing distribution. Unfortunately, we could have used more men's clothes and shoes in small sizes. Most men here have feet smaller than the average women. We also had lots of XL and bigger and the people are just not that big. Also, most of the women wear skirts and dresses. We will know next year!!!
the road to the church for the meeting. We had a packed house and I was one
of the lucky ones who got to sit outside where it was cooler!!!
|This herd went right by the steps of the church.|

Until next time! PJ xoxo
