New signs of life

School’s back in session.  For our new graduates from elementary to middle school, we put together a new group of younger “youth.”  On Saturday, we headed over to a local open air market and had them scavenge for school supplies.  They only had 12 minutes to find about 22 objects.  You should have seen them run!

While at Home

Our youth as an activity and a promo decided to put together a few videos of how to invite someone to come to church.  Granted these were done around our VBS time, they are still entertaining for those who have a fear of doing the wrong thing.

In Peru

As breathtaking as the photos that Kiana showed us were, she decided to put together a video for the church helping us to see how she was involved in evangelism, translation and reaching over 5000 people with the gospel (1200 praying for salvation.)  Wow, can’t even imagine how tiring that would be!

In Africa

I’m not sure if you got to see some of the photos that were taken of Keila in Africa.  Well, she managed to put together this video for the church to share her experiences with us.  Take a look!

Spanish NOT necessary…

Two of the teacher that came from Wisconsin to spend their summer serving in Mexico spoke little Spanish.  And yet they were able to communicate and enjoy interacting with our youth and those they met.  We’re thankful for their help, example and courage.  May God bless the remainder of your summer!

Big squeeze…

Not everything came hard at camp.  We were trucked around in the back of two twin cab pick-ups.  While you can’t do this in the big urban centers, in the “sticks” everyone travels like this.  We were also treated to some wonderful food on our last night in the area.  During the week, we were stuffed with great food prepared by Paty, our onsite volunteer chef.

One more time…

Our neighborhood outreach took the form of a 1-day VBS on the beach with kids trucked in from nearby communities.  They enjoyed our music, crafts, games and choreographies.  We were all warmed up after our 5-day VBS the week before in our community.
