The St. Lucia Team Is Working Hard

image1Glorious and wonderful praise to our Father in heaven as He continues to bless this team. The weather has been all but predictable as it showers at random times and sometimes very hard late in the night. The team has been trying to do touch ups on the trenches to be able to start pouring concrete. They have mostly done steel-tying while they touch things up. Today they unloaded and then reloaded two different sizes of block for the walls. They did very well and feel very accomplished.

Saturday evening we went back to the village square where we were surprised by not having a host for a presentation, but instead took advantage of the crowds of children in the streets and began to make balloon animals to pass out. We also had the opportunity to pass out tracts to the adults surrounding the square. God works in awesome ways!! Today the team was able to go see an old burned down sugar factory. They very much enjoyed the beautiful scenery and fauna of the island. We can’t believe that this trip is almost over. So much has happened a the team has grown so much in such a short amount of time. Praise the Lord for all the blessings and miracles that He has given this team. As time runs down we look forward to what God has in store for us.

Kymberly Roasau: When we first got here I thought that we would never get anything done. Three weeks later I am so surprised at the amount of work 13 teenagers did.

Casey Griffis: Honestly I’m doing great! The project didn’t turn out the way we planned but I am still happy to be working hard and serving the Lord. The weather is great, the scenery is beautiful, and the team is fantastic! Glad God called me to this trip!

Ben Wedel: Three weeks in and we have completed nearly all the digging, much of the steel tying, and we have gravel, cement, sand and water ready for mixing into concrete. In the next week our team should be able to lay the foundation for a church building. After being together for two months it will be very difficult to part with these team members.

Ethan Steffes: The work is hard and going slowly which is disheartening. I find much comfort in God and being in morning Devils and nightly group devos and all throughout the day. I have learned a lot and had a lot of fun too!image2
