Dear Prayer Warriors,
We have arrived in Nacaome and are settled in to our hotel. We arrived around 4 pm at the hotel and began gathering up our projects and sorting through our supplies and crafts. One project I forgot to mention to you earlier is our intention to take photos of kids and families. Art Walsh bought a small printer and Terry Taylor brought his wonderful camera. Most of the people have never had a photo of their children. This will be a very special gift.
One of our interpreters brought along his 12 year old son tonight who will be joined by two other 12 year old boys. They are planning to help also with crafts and toothbrushing instruction and can speak both Spanish and English. His son was so proud to be of help to us in this way.
During dinner at our hotel the interpreter, Juan Rosa, who grew up here and went to school in Iowa to study agriculture, gave us a history of the land and farming. We all had many questions. He has developed a private school her for children to be able to reach 9th grade. Over and over, we hear education is the key to breaking the circle of poverty from one generation to the next.
Craig offered a very inspiring devotional taken from Luke 18:27 and Wisdom Hunters messages, “What is impossible with men is possible with God”. He encouraged us to look for miracles and to see how God is working. Tomorrow we drive to the school and will be fully engaged all day with the kids and the projects. I am sure we will have much to share tomorrow night during our closing time. Stay tuned!
I will read your encouraging notes and prayers tomorrow night during our time together.
Blessings to the “Stay Team” and thanks for your prayers.
Please pray this prayer as you read It:
Lord, protect the “go team” tomorrow as they attempt to be your hands and feet in Las Tablas. Let the visit to the children, families, teachers, and local pastors provide encouragement and mercies beyond our imagination. We praise you for sending this team.
