Life here in Margaritas has been a constant flurry of excitement from day one to now. I can’t say how amazing it is to be here. Each of the children bring so much laughter and joy into these homes. I am so blessed to finally see them face to face and get to laugh, play, and work with them.
Monday was the start of the schedule that Kyle put together for our time here. Although, even with a schedule every day is filled with just as many new and unexpected surprises. I am learning more and more what it means to trust the Lord and whether in the midst of order or chaos, joy or disappointment, He is in control. Even in this moment He is working all things together for our good and for His glory. Praise be to God! He is sooo good! Psalm 118:1
Every morning at 6am the seven of us go over to Matt’s house. We walk through the door greeted by a chorus of “Buenos dias!” before settling down for devotions. Matthew is reading through 1st Chronicles with the kids so after a lesson, singing, and committing the day to the Lord it’s time for P.E. and breakfast.
There’s a lot of projects to be done at both houses so we’ve been splitting up to help at Matt’s house or coming back to Kyle and Suzy’s. We got to play soccer yesterday which was a blast. These kids are all pros and it’s fun enough just to watch them all pouring out energy by the bucket loads to chase after the ball.
Today Hildi, Janet, and I are here at Kyle and Suzy’s with all the girls helping with housecleaning, baking, school, and meals; while the guys are all at Matt’s digging up pipes, painting window sills, and figuring out a housing situation for some chickens.
All in all, no matter what tomorrow brings, lets rejoice because Jesus is King!
“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
