Today is our last day in Chincha...what happened to the front end of our trip? The team is packing up their suitcases once again as we prepare to head for Lima tonight. But before head north, we have a full day of ministry ahead of us. Today is the much anticipated Childrens Carnival...always a hit and always a blessing. Their is something so tangible about the joy that is created by that event. After we fill the kids full of sugar from Carnival prizes we'll take them on in the field of battle (aka...the Soccer field). Well, you can probably guess how that's going to go...but we'll chalk it up to our 4th place mentality! :-)
The church has moved their Sunday service to tonight so that we can worship with them...we are all looking very forward to that as their is something so sweet about worshiping in another language. It's at times like that we begin to see the "bigness" of God's Kingdom and we are truly humbled. After the service we load the bus and drive 3 hours back to Lima.
As an editorial for all you parents...your kids are amazing! Each and every student has been "all in" this trip, and the unity this team is experiencing is simply sweet. Please continue to lift us up in prayer as we know that what we're doing is so much bigger than us.
