It (so far) has been incredible to see relationships formed, fun had, and new outreaches in new neighborhoods started.
In Palmas, we continue to play soccer, hang out at the school, and this week judged the english song contest (which is always a good time). The boys, during the english contest, are always celebrities.... They just flock to them for pictures....example:
Acozac english classes and going to the gym has provided many new friendships. Way more than I anticipated. It has been a blast getting to know these people!
I have a lady in my class, Diana, who every friday goes to drug rehab place. It is a church that has an outreach to the guys who come in off the street and need to get clean. She invited us to go with her yesterday. It was an amazing opportunity for us to see that.
Hussam (a camino intern) said on Facebook, "It is so amazing to listen to these people how christ have changed there lives, from drugs, marijuana, and cocaine addicted to great people who love Christ. They always smile and they always happy regardless that they have nothing. Every six of them sleep in one room without any mattress or blanket. These people have officially stolen my heart.
We jumped in, hung out, ate a meal with them, and then of course... played soccer (next to pyramids, ever done that?) It was a blast, and we are praying how we can go along side this ministry in the future!
Today we have a giant fair in Jesus Maria.... with lots of games and a short devotion thing. Fun for the whole family... please be praying for it!
We have a lot coming up in this next week, with this fun team. Please continue to pray for us-- energy, boldness, hard work etc.
