happy wednesday morning to all. Its hard to believe our trip is over hAlf way done. God is continuing to bless is in so many ways. Yesterday (tuesday) was a full day. In the morning rice and beans were packaged to take into the colonias in the afternoon. The kids un wrapped their tue dyed shirts and hung them all around.
A large group of people spent several hours over at the volu (older boys facility) painting and cleaning. They were able to complete the painting. There are some plumbing issues in their bathrooms so a few will go over today or tomorrow to fix those issues.
A group of us went into the colonias in the afternoon to distribute rice and beans and a hot meal. We brought chili and what i will call goolash along with oranges. Ad we drove in the drivers honked to let people know there wAs food to be delivered. People of all ages came running out. This is always a very humbling experience ad they have very little. Houses of dirt floors but not lacking in love or gratitude.
there were two soccer games played here yyesterday:a girls game and a boys game. Both america vs mexico the americans represented by us and mexicans by che members. Lots of fun and excitment around both games!
We made hambugers for dinner which all enjoyed! During our evening time we celebrated our three birthdays this week: brit, nancy and sara.
Tonight mama lapita and others are throwing is a fiesta which we are all looking forward to. Please continie to pray for our team and all here at che! Our verse last night wAs hebrews 12:1-3, i encourage you to look it up and read it, all about running gods race with perseverance!
