God continues to bless the team with good health, strength in the heat, and incredible opportunities our relationships here. Tuesday was spent, in part, with food distribution around Wilber’s church. We took one bag to Meritza’s mother who is recovering from hernia surgery. Delivered bags, prayed and talked with several families, including Marcia, Reyna and Marco and his wife. We had lunch at Tip Top with Wilber, Meritza and their boys, as we’ll as several sponsor students from the area.
Tuesday night , Rod and Barb taught at Pastor Belcer’s to about 60 adults and children. The teaching on the tree of life and fruits of the spirit were well received, and included LOTS of audience participation.
Wednesday, the men left very early with Cecil to drive 4+ hours to Guayavilla to meet briefly with all of Pastor Belcer’s team of pastors, then drove back to arrive in time for the teaching night 2 at the church. The women had a great day with gift distribution and pictures at Tabernacle Agua Vida, then lunch at a Mexican restaurant and a short visit to the market. Back to La Quinta to pack the van and then to meet the men back at TAV for the second night of teaching. After a short opening by Rod and Barb, the Strawmeyrs gave their testimonies. It was a very emotional night, with lots of tears, prayers, and praises.
