Saturday night we arrived in El Salvador. We had great flights and our team got to spend time together and get to know each other. God always does amazing things if we don't limit him.
John 14:13-14 (ESV) Whatever you ask in my name, this will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.
We woke early and got ready for church. We went and worshipped with brothers and sisters from here. We spoke a small message to the church, and ministered to the children. In the afternoon we went to an orphanage and had about 200 kids. We celebrated Day Of The Child! We saw smiles that would not have been there if God, and others that supported us would not be on these precious faces. We gave treat bags, stuffed animals, served snow cones and pop corn, face painting, balloon animals, had bouncy houses, piñata, a DJ for music, and played sports with them, mostly Football, which in the United States is called soccer.
The rain stopped and the clouds gone. A silent night. No activity, so quiet as we drive the streets, calling that we have food. Seeing people crawling from under cardboard or plastic. They had struggled through the rain and now we're fighting the cold weather. We handed out all the food we had prepared. There were many people that came up that did not get fed. The thing that had most impact to our team was the moms that came up with small children. There looked to be about ten small children that we could not help besides the men & women. We felt helplessness, even though we fed so many. We pray God uses us the rest of the week. Our team has already been touched.
