Another day on the mission field gives us an opportunity to glorify God and stand strong in His faithfulness. A second day painting the Principe De Paz Church was very productive. God is gracious in allowing us the opportunity to serve HIm in the place where His people come to worship HIm.
A beautiful ride through the Nicaraguan countryside led us to the village of Los Jobitos. Games of flag tag, making bracelets, polishing nails, and sharing the gospel to children, teens, and adults took place during a visit to this village. It is also a blessing to have a doctor that comes with us to see the people at no cost and treat their maladies. Parasites, Impetigo, pneumonia and other respiratory ailaments are some of the most common every day things Dr. Anderson sees. It is also an opportunity to give small bags of food to the many mothers and pregnant ladies that we see in every village. The team engaged in many opportunities to spend time with HIs people in the village of Los Jobitos, it is fun and such a privilege to be here with our church family learning how to be engaging and creative with sharing the gospel with others, and especially challenging with the language barrier. Sharing the simple message of the gospel in the same language for us at home should be so easy!
As the day closes, we discuss our God moments; moments where each of us saw a glimpse of God in the things we experience each day. God shows himself in so many ways to teach, correct, rebuke, and train us. We praise Him for his grace and mercy on us.
