You guys would not believe how sweet the fellowship is here on the mission field. This morning we had a precious time of worship and devotions as a team, and then we headed over to the nursing home. We each got to minister to these seniors - we sang with them, shared Jesus with them, painted nails, and massaged their limbs with lotion. We also showed them an evangelical film and prayed with them. Many of us were simply in tears, sitting on the couches arm in arm with the elderly. We just love them, and feel like we know them - I wish you could have seen their reactions when they recognized some of us... This is why we breathe air!
We then split up - part of our team went over to the Dome (the Triqui) where they built more furniture and met with more families there. The rest of the team went to the home of one of the ladies that Kathy has been discipling and gave her enough shoes to go into her community to share the Gospel (and shoes) with them. Please pray for the ongoing outreach of shoes, which we pray continues long after we are gone.
We then had a chance to BLESS our missionaries by preparing and serving sundaes for them and their children. We even painted the nails of all the girls, and even some of the men, who will remain nameless :) And then we got to hear from each of the missionaries so we can all know the needs and pray with knowledge.
Please pray for us tomorrow - spending time at Kathy's for the women's Bible study while the guys finish some projects, then a few other outreaches on our last full day here (SNIFF SNIFF)!
