Today we started with a wonderful broadcast at the radio station. Four testimonies were given and two beautiful songs were sung. After we set off for the village of Laredo. Here we restored the baseball field to ensure that it will be ready for next week’s missionary group, For the Love of the Game. They are a College/High School Baseball Team that will be traveling from village to village challenging the villagers. The men of the village were eager to help and are looking forward to participating in the game next week. While the men prepared for next week the girls engaged with the women and children. We made foam visors and involved the children again in the skit of Zaccheaus. This time however, we allowed the children to act out the parts. When the kids returned to school, the focus was then turned to the women. After speaking with them, the response was very touching. One woman even brought forth her daughter for prayer. After our testimonies were shared we then headed home for lunch.
Our second village was El Plantanal. Here we did our skit again for the children, made balloon animals, played soccer in the streets, and painted more fingernails. As always it was such a blessing to see how touched the villagers were because of our presence.
