Hola nuestras amigos!
Well yesterday was unbelievable! After we all ate breakfast we caught a bus to this small town called Bolivar. From there we had a sports camp/ arts and crafts day. We bonded with all the people of Bolivar! After lunch two groups headed out to paint houses and interact with the people in the houses while some stayed and either did arts and crafts or played sports with the kids. So many great relationships were built not just with the towns people, but also with each other. We also have gotten to bond a lot more with our awesome translators, Nikki and Caesar. While spending so much time with the Ecuadorians the language barrier slowly faded away as we became more accustomed with the Spanish language. It was so amazing just to spend time with all of these people and see the kids’ faces light up when we were playing with them. Around 5:30pm we caught another bus back to the house. Some went for a swim in the ocean. Others hung out at the house. Next came dinner and we shared God sightings. It’s amazing to see God working in so many different ways, and in so many people’s lives. God is good always, and always God is good.
