Pictures from the Weekend



I wasn't able to post on Saturday...I was too busy running back and forth to all the stores in town buying Gatorade. The poor group all got Montezuma's Revenge....when you get sick from "both ends". This is the most common sickness we see down here, and usually knocks you down for a whole day.
So yestderday, the group laid low...literally in the horizontal position all day. A couple of them didn't get it too bad and one lady (Marie) didn't get it at all. So it was a quiet day as they rested and we kept them stocked with whatever they wanted/needed checking in on them every couple of hours.
That night, when we made our final check, most all of them were sitting outside in a circle praying together. Then today, most of them felt much, much better. Continue to pray for a couple that are still not feeling too good. Yesterday, all anyone wanted was Gatorade and Saltines and tonight, most of them were eating tacos. :)
Today we had a morning service with the group in English and then our regular afternoon church service with the people here. We rejoiced as Hna. Maria Flores and our son Benjamin got baptized.
Benjamin turned 8 this May and trusted Christ as his savior on his birthday. When he found out we were having a baptsim today, he asked me to help him get some extra clothes. I asked him why and he said because Daddy was doing baptisms and since he is now saved, he wanted to get baptised too. I asked him some questions about why one gets baptized and he had a good understanding. I also asked him if he could tell everyone why he wanted to get baptized and he said, "Because I trusted Jesus and got saved on my birthday and now I want to get baptized too."
Daddy cried, mommy cried, and Benjamin just smiled...he was so very happy! After church we had a time of fellowship with the group and people from our church and the children and young people played some games before we headed home.
Thank you for praying! Though this team has gone through some rough times this week, the Lord is truly blessing, using them, and I love hearing their testimonies of their time here.

    I don't really know my spanish very well...even after 2 years of it in school...but I'm curious as to what the Hna. in front of some of the ladies names means!? I've seen it a few times now and I'm really curious!
    Thanks so much for sharing your story! It's so amazing what you all are doing for the Lord!
    God Bless,

  4. Elizabeth...Hna. is the abbreviation for hermana. Hno. is the abbr. for hermano.

    hermana= sister
    hermano= brother

  6. I am so happy to hear that everyone is feeling better. :)

    What a blessing it must've been for Daniel to baptize Benjamin. How special. Praise the Lord for Benjamin's salvation and understanding of God's love for us.
