Hola (Hello) from Cochabamba!
Today started out similar to the other days. We got ready to leave for the project to do a VBS and gathered in the lobby for a quick prayer time. We planned to arrive around ten. However, some protesters had built a wall of rocks in the middle of the road. After a a long wait and several changes of plans, the blockade was eradicated and we were on our way to the project.
When we got to the church, we were fed yet another delightful meal. After that, most of the team started prepping for VBS, while the others went on home visits to their sponsored children's homes.
But, all too soon, it was time to say adios (goodbye) to the project and all the people there. Many tears were shed, and many, many photos taken. It was heart-wrenching to leave these precious people.
When we got back to the hotel, we had a lovely meal of steak, rice, eggs, and potatoes, and vegetables. After that, the wonderful Pastor Brian bought everyone ice cream from a local shop.
The evening concluded with worship (Thanks Chris for helping out tonight!), daily debrief, and an AMAZING devotional led by Emelia Johnson (You go, girl!!)
Today was emotiona and memorable. Please keep praying for returned health for those who've lost it, and for remaining health for those who haven't. Thanks!
(See you later)
