It has taken a while to get into a groove,
but we've finally settled into a nice routine.
Usually, we arrive in the early afternoon. Yesterday we arrived a bit later because we waited for the rainstorm to pass. We're learning to operate like the Peruvians who stop everything when the rain starts.
Upon arriving, the kids jumped out of the van and ran for the field where they began playing Frisbee in the ankle-deep mud. We just received Frisbees in the mail from friends in the United States. Our Frisbee premiere was a huge success; the local kids LOVED it!!
During each visit we read and discuss scripture, sing praise and worship, and do activities with the kids.
We turned off the one light which hangs from the middle of the ceiling and compared the darkness to sin. The kids here are very familiar with darkness...and sin. After lighting a candle and letting our eyes adjust, we talked about the impact of one candle. We all agreed that Jesus' love is like candlelight that brightens even the darkest of situations.
Anna had fun teaching one of her friends a hand-slapping game.
Thank you Jesus for bringing us here to this little community in the middle of the Peruvian jungle to share your love!!
