Finding Joy in Change
Then, we were off to decorate the house that we built yesterday for the mother and her three kids. After moving all the furniture and supplies in, the ladies went to work decorating. You notice I did not say, "the men". The team and the family then gathered for prayer and dedication of the house before the big reveal. This is when more tears came. The family was so humble and appreciative of all that they were blessed with. It was a very humbling experience for me personally, seeing the pure joy on their faces over a house the size of what we would consider a shed. But I know that they will make it a HOME, and I pray that God will continue to provide all that they need.
We ended the night being able to once again feed the homeless around the streets of El Salvador. Tonight we saw more children than we did the previous nights. And the tears rolled once more seeing the children's smiles and excitement as they received "comida" (food).
Thank you, God, for loving us all.
My cup runneth over once again.
