Sunday, Everyone has a father!

Today was an incredible experience. We visited a church, an orphanage, and we fed the homeless. Today challenged us to get outside of our comfort zone as we had to sing in front of a congregation in a language they didn’t even understand.
While we were at the boy’s orphanage we gave a soccer ball to each kid, fed them pizza, and we also had a water balloon fight. It was a nice way to cool down on a hot day. Since all of our team members have been to El Salvador at least once, a couple of us got to see friends at the orphanage that we had made in the past.
On the bus ride back to the mission house the younger group members were all quiet while reflecting on the day we spent.
Later on in the day we went out with Kurt and fed the homeless aka “His peeps.” It gave
 us a chance to realize how blessed by God we truly are.
Father’s Day is a day to honor all the great dads out there that do so much for their children. There’s one father that we should be honoring in our everyday lives; our Heavenly Father. We should look to Him in times of trouble and in times of need. Shouldn’t every day be Father’s Day? - Maggie

Psalms 68:5
Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in His holy habitation.
