1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Always be joyful. Always keep on praying. No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ.
I wish I could paint a picture with my words of God’s goodness and mercy printed and woven into every moment of the day. It’s been so fun living it daily. Sometimes there may not be a lot of food, but there is ALWAYS enough. There’s been some hard falls, but no broken bones.
Just yesterday we started the day with no water in the cisterns. It had all finished and no one knew if the city water would come through or not. We told the Lord about it and kept on praying through the day. Well, Armando was able to contact the water guy sooner than expected, and on top of that water came through the pipes which was not expected. By the end of the day the water was spilling over the sides of the tank and we were all dancing and praising God.
Random people or neighbours come to the door daily with little bags of groceries or bananas, sometimes a pot of tamales or bread. God’s blessings are constantly streaming in through all shapes and sizes. Sometimes the size of a rain drop and sometimes the size of the moon.
I’ve admired the entire team for their hard work and willingness to push on even when they’re exhausted at times. Everyone’s up and out the door by 5:50am for devotions at Matt’s before the day begins. The rest of the day is filled with school, therapies and projects from A to Z. The guys are working on a chicken coop for the boy’s chickens. Team work creates a bomb of accomplishments. So much can get done when a group of people decide to work together. I’ll be eternally thankful for this team, and I love them to pieces.
