What a wonderful first day in El Salvador. We enjoyed a time of worship with Pastor Haziel at Mt. Calvario Baptisto Church. I always enjoy the upbeat music and often sing songs that are familiar such as “How Great is Our God” and “How Great Thou Art”. Ginger and I stayed to hear the encouraging message of the value of the believer to God. The rest of the team worked with several children during the message time. Lydia shared about Jonah and the big fish and the kids made a craft that helped them understand it.
Later we took nine young men from an orphanage to see the new movie “Alladin.”
They were very surprised and enjoyed the treat! Normally these teenage boys would have spent yet another day in their orphanage, likely playing soccer barefoot with a makeshift soccer ball so getting to go out on an excursion is a treat. Thank you so much to those of you who helped to make this possible!
(For the safety and protection of the boys, we are not allowed to post their photos, but here is part of our team in front of the theatre we took them to.)
We finished the day with some instructions for the week and to bed.
