BULA from ” heaven on earth”!!!! We could have not asked for a better team, host missionaries, weather or scenery.
The team is doing great. The supplies were slow in coming the first couple of days and we learned to dread the sound of the truck engine as it usually came in the evenings after everyone had showered. However, they would happily (well most of them) grab their hats and gloves and unload the truck.
The camp committee came and visited yesterday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised at the amount of work they got done in 2 1/2 day. The blocks are up to 4-5 courses and seven at the Windows. Trusses are being made along with painting of the buildings. They are a hard working group who love to have fun.
Free time and evenings are spent playing on the swing set or rope swing, playing games or just lying in the grass enjoying the breezes. After evening devos, the team enjoys gazing at the stars and looking for the Southern Cross and other constellations.
The days are warm and the evenings are cool, requiring a jacket or sweatshirt. We have not seen any rain.
Today the team enjoyed visiting the Brethren Church where they did a presentation D heard a sermon on Hebrews 9. Afterwards, we all went to Chicken Express where we enjoyed a lunch of chicken. Afterwards, we hit the grocery store to buys essentials such as shampoo, razors and cookies.
This week we will be visiting a waterfall and going zip lining before going to buy souvenirs at a market. We also hope to get into some schools for evangelism/presentations.
The team members are growing spiritually as evidenced by their comments after private devotions and what they share after evening devotions.
Thank you for your prayers and KEEP PRAYING!!!!
