This last week has been a great opportunity to catch up on a few things, enjoy some free time, and prepare for the team of 34 lead by Pastor Robin from West Jacksonville Baptist Church. This last week I have found great pleasure in digging into God's Word throughout each day as I continue to read through Romans, in addition to other daily readings. One of a few days of excellent weather allowed me and the others staying at the mission house to enjoy some board games and basketball at the local park. To jump start the weekend, the other interns and I joined the Kuzdas family and went to a local movie theatre to see "Cars 2"...in Spanish of course.
Check out the pictures below of some of the ministry that took place throughout the week. Also, be sure look for upcoming posts as I hope to challenge and be challenged with discussion on various topics.
Perhaps one of the most messy! Bobbing for candy in a tin can filled with water, followed by bobbing for candy in a tin can filled with flour is a perfect recipe for excitement, laughter, and smiles. No matter what needs to be accomplished, Karla here is always willing to be the first volunteer to get in and take care of business.
Another game that often is played by popular demand is the pineapple game. During this game, each team member has an opportunity to eat as much pineapple as possible in a short period of time. The twist...you can only use your mouth. The best part is when one kid says, "I think I ate a tooth!" And everyone looks at the other kid who is smiling...sure enough a tooth is missing.
And when the game is completed...it is a free for all shot at the remaining portions of the pineapple.
During Kids Club, it is a great time for the kids to have a safe place where they can fearlessly enjoy games, the company of those around them, and hear the Word of God with their friends.
A team that had previously visited to serve in Costa Rica held a vision clinic over the course of a few days. During that time, hundreds of prescribed glasses where handed out to those who cannot afford them. Some of the glasses however, had to be specially made and it was those glasses we had the opportunity to separate and deliver to three different locations in Los Guido.
