During VBS time, it was frustrating because they spoke another language that I didn’t understand. When we were driving to our construction sites, I noticed […]

Today was an amazing, wonderful day! We went on a tour to see two community centers that were really eye opening. The woman that spoke to us told us that they had been persecuted in the past by the Catholic Church. Then we went to VBS and we played with the children and seeing their […]

Today was a really fun, chaotic, crazy, silly, and spontaneous day, and I loved it. In the morning I woke up really tired because I didn’t go to bed until 1:30 that night, so I started off the day already dreading it. To make matters worse the group of baseball boys and I had to […]

We got a whole pile of dirt done in eight minutes right before lunch. After we were done with the construction we helped with the VBS. It was […]

Today was a hot day. Even though it was hot it was still relaxing and exciting. I got to know a little kid named Christopher. I met him yesterday when he taught me how to throw a baseball, even though he was only ten. Today though he helped me clean up their local baseball field […]

To say that today was an awesome day is an understatement! I truly saw how fast and mysterious God works and I am grateful for this day that the Lord has made. For the majority of the day my group stayed at the Connection Café in Santiago. At this site we engaged in conversation with […]

So as I reflect back on today all that flows through my head is that GOD IS AWESOME! On this whole trip The Lord has challenged me with small things that put me out of my comfort zone. The most prevalent to happen to me was VBS. Now if you know me I’m not normally […]

Sunday we had church on the beach. As we sat down on our towels listening to the waves crash into the shore we meditated on Romans chapter 8. The lyrics from calming worship songs coursed through our ears. At one point I decided to look down at my hands. I rubbed my fingers together and […]
