Dear family and friends,
Today was a blessedly eventful day. We began with pancakes and watermelon overlooking the Caribbean. We enjoyed them so much the waiter made extra for us all.
Sunday morning is church for the children at Heart To Heart. They led us all in wonderful praise music while waving colorful banners. They enjoyed waving the banners and we loved watching them. Then we broke into Sunday School classes. Amy Serrano led our class and used the time to thank several of the long term teacher volunteers that will be leaving in the next few weeks. We also talked about the virtues of selflessness, humility, faith and obedience. After church we made a quick trip to the super mercado for candy, shampoo and flip flops. Not your usual shopping trip.
Next stop was the Children’s Village for lunch. We had beets and chicken today and many children attempted to negotiate a trade for the beets. Not popular. After lunch the boys received their new pillows with joy and an attempt at a pillow fight followed. They, as the girls, were very appreciative of the gift.
Next we went to the babies house to push the kids on the swings and kick around a soccer ball. Such fun for all. Dan and Frank and many helpers started the first seesaw. Amy helped by keeping little fingers away from the saw. Kids had much fun helping but the project did not quite get completed before we had to leave for dinner. Mañana.
We are now finishing dinner and I must say goodby as this is our last wi fi of the day.
Thanks for your love and support.
Chris, for the team.
