"Behold, I am The Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me?"
facilities for special needs adults and special needs children we saw much of the same
looks in their eyes......loving gratitude. It was more than a "gracias" it was a blessing!
and as young as 19. They all enjoyed the music and many enjoyed dancing and
singing along. Others took whacks at Angry Bird and Dora piñatas. Is was very
moving to see the appreciation for just a few pieces of candy and trinkets.
From last night, feeding many in dire and desperate situations living with a
dependency on God to provide the most basic needs of food and shelter to children
that are totally dependent on someone to meet every need from hygiene to feeding to
touch. For these people, we did not have to speak Spanish to tell them we cared for
them, all it took was a touch. A touch to the hand, arm or face; a touch would almost
always bring a smile. But for even the vocal ones, we could not understand their
language, but their eyes spoke more loud and clear than their voice ever could. What
was said was their deep gratitude for someone caring. They were not impressed with
our nationality, status, or position, all they knew was we were someone who loved
them for "this" day. We hope they know The Lord will always love them for they are
precious to Him!
1 Sam 26:24
24 Behold, as your life was precious this day in my sight, so may my life be precious in the sight of the Lord, and may he deliver me out of all tribulation.”
It was good to see the impact of volunteers to these communities and the improvements and provisions to these facilities! There is a long way to go! I hope many more will help by giving and going!
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.
