We LOVE it down here ~ Amy has already asked to come back next year! I think she and Mirna have decided to adopt each other. They are having so much fun together. Mirna is our interpreter, along with Amanda, and they are doing a fantastic job.
This morning at VBS we had 34 children ~ but almost 50 folks when you add in the teens, adults & babies that stayed for the fun. This afternoon, at a different location in a much smaller community, we had about 10 children.
Amy is doing her part at spreading the love ~ she brought a bag full of rubber band bracelets she had made on her rainbow loom and is giving them away. I think tomorrow, Mirna will get a bracelet making lesson if there is time. The kids all loved their bracelets and most picked bracelets that matched what they were wearing ~ even the boys.
At the afternoon location, Greg got to help the construction team with their project. They were mixing cement the old fashinoned way, with shovels and building a 6 foot wide x about 20 long concrete pad in front of the church. Tomorrow, another 6 foot section will be added.
Here is a few pictures (out of the tons we took)
