We saw some men building a door by hand. Yesterday he was planing the wood with a hand planer. Today he had stained it and was sanding it. It was so smooth.
The church did not have a service tonight so we had a small break. We got back to the compound by 5 p.m.instead of 8. The rain brought cooler temperatures and some of us are actually chilly. I checked the weather and was surprised to see the temp was 79F. Most kids guessed that it was cooler than that. We are adjusting. :)
We are staying safe and healthy for the most part. Just scrapes (Andrew Lindsey especially...I think he's going for a record) and a little sunburn (a couple of the boys). One girl was throwing up last night. :( But thankfully she got some rest and slept in this morning and was able to join us by lunch and even eat some.
I still can hardly believe that I'm here. It is an amazing experience. I love speaking Spanish and learn new words constantly.
Tomorrow will be a long day. We will have service in the evening so we will be in the village from 8:30 a.m. until after 7 p.m.. We will be hot and sweaty and tired with not much opportunity to get very clean. There are not enough seats in the church so it is often full with people standing inside and out (praise the Lord for a full church!!).
Please pray that God would soften the hearts of the people that we meet and that they would hear and receive the Gospel."
I'm also praying for Micah, as the heat is affecting him. And she updated that her concerns for herself are improving but still in need of improvement.
