Neskin, whose little heart will be evaluated for repair.
We are praising God today for all the blessings that we have seen and been a part of this week. This was the theme of our communion service tonight. We shared with each other where we saw God this week, and where we saw God in each other. Many tears were shed as we all agreed it was going to be hard to leave this country and it´s people behind us tomorrow. Some of our favorite memories were described as follows: deworming medicine with Fanta chasers, the blind can see, toothless grins, desperate parents, the smell of children´s vitamins, dirty feet....
A parasite filled belly that will get better because of medicine.
We have spent our day playing. We visited the artisan market in the city of San Pedro Sula. We ate Mennonite BBQ chicken, and we visited the beautiful Pulhapansak waterfalls. We are praying for the bus now, which decided to cough and sputter today. Don´t think our cough and cold medicine will cure that problem.
Kevin shared three songs with us tonight. A version of The Doxology, The Lord's Prayer and How Great Thou Art. All had amazing harmonies and took our breath away. We felt God´s presence with us. We have felt you all with us this week. Thanks so much for your love and support. Please....ask us about our stories. Plan to sit for awhile.....
One child at a time,
