We also got to see the altar started on the inside.
It is amazing to imagine the work God is going to do in this building over the years to come and astounding to think that each of us to took part in building it – Gloria a Dios! (a common phrase here meaning glory to God).
For lunch the sisters served awesome ham steaks, rice, plantain, salad and tortillas. They are a hard working team of women who keep everyone on the site well fed!
Today was also the start of vacation bible school for the kids: one of the reasons I love this trip! Before the kids began to arrive I had to put the puppet stage together which was probably the hardest thing I have done so far! Ummm where are the instructions???
When it was done both Noah and I were very happy!
We had about 30 or so kids come and Katie & I led singing, dancing, crafts, prayers and a story – all by the grace of God. The story of Noah and the ark was performed by the puppets and the kids giggled, laughed and jumped all over when the puppets talked – it was such a blessing to see.
After a nice dinner in town we were invited to a church service in Cuaca. It was a regional meeting of the women’s group from each of the Baptist churches in the area. We worshiped God among hundreds of our brothers and sisters in Spanish – truly a lovely way to end the day.
