We are truly amazed to see God’s presence at the progress that has been made on this house in just three days. With just concrete and footings when we approached the job site today, 3 hours later, the steel structure was in place and it looks like the outline of a house!
Interestingly enough, the youngest daughter of the family – for whom we are building the house – immediately approached and asked for a Bible. Although we didn’t have one with us today (we had other tools for building, but not a Bible), we became determined to find her a Spanish bible before we leave town. As the door was now opened, this gave us the opportunity to ask her if she has heard the Gospel message and accept Jesus Christ as her Savior. We were pleased to know that she has.
While the house framework was going up and the concrete blocks were being transported to the job site, the Virginia team’s Woman’s Conference had a most successful day ministering to a record high number of 41 women. It was only after the conference, where the vehicle didn’t cooperate and alternative transportation was arranged for them to get home.
After lunch, the team traveled to Jicaro Bonito to minister to the village people. This became more challenging as the rain moved in and poured harder and harder with every passing moment. Luckily, we took refuge in the local church to weather the roughest part and we were able to do inside “rainy day” crafts with the village children. Concerns about the road conditions caused us to leave that mission field early, but hopefully, some seeds of love were planted.
