Hoy es Domingo. I an finding myself speaking Spanish even when I don't have to, and even thinking in Spanish. I am so glad that I know as much as I do, but wish I knew even more. I would like to take classes when I get home I think. So today started at 6:30 again. Breakfast was doughnuts and scrambled eggs. I LOVED them, but couldn't finish them, I started getting kind of sick to my stomach. I had to go to the little girls room several times before we left. Heather and Jen prayed for me though and it wasn't long and I was feeling better. I found though that even if I clean out my water bottle, the taste of Gatorade DOES NOT leave. So as long as we still have Gatorade packets, I will only put Gatorade in my bottle and I'll just drink water when I am here in a plastic cup. We have to buy our water to drink because it is not good from the tap, we could get very sick.
We got to the location Cerros de Mogollon around 9AM. We had to go back around and invite everyone again and apologize for missing yesterday. It was so muddy! My shoes got horribly filthy! Our translator today was Boris. He is a tailor, 28 years old and going to the University. He was very nice. We then started Bible School. We had about 50 kids there. We sang songs, had the story and then broke into groups to do questions and the craft. We had a lot of fun. The older kids (mostly boys) hung out with the boys on our team playing hackey sack and what not. Most of the crafts and things were done by the moms and daughters. The first story was creation. My baby was there, with clothes on. I called him Mi Corazon. He was so cute! After we played some games like hot potato and frisbee. I was feeling better, but Brooke still was not. We came back for almuerzo. It was yummy rice and beans and chicken again. Francisco stayed and ate with us. After lunch he gave us his testimony. It was great to hear. He said his son got cholera and was healed by God. He's never looked back since. After lunch we watched the rain fall...HARD! It was falling sideways, it was incredible! I've only seen the rain REALLY fall like that in the tropics, one time before and that was when I was in Jamaica. We weren't sre about VBS, but it stopped in time that we did go out. It was SO muddy though! My feet were heavy from the mud. My shoes look awful, but they can be cleaned. The kids were so excited to see us! As we drove down the road and passed houses they would wave and run along side the truck saying, "The Americans are here!" It was neat to see. So we did Bible School with them again, played tons of fun games, sang songs and did a craft. There weren't quite as many kids there in the afternoon, probably because of the rain, but we still had a great time.
Here are some of the parents that were watching the kids doing Bible School. Dan Holmes is the white guy in the back! :-)
Dios es bueno!
Here are a few of the kiddos.
