Friends and family,

After the first day of our adventure, our team is doing well! Learning the culture and customs has been quite interesting. We had an opportunity today to visit a local church and they served us Papusas! Needless to say, the team was quite happy.

After our time at the church we went back to our camp and packed one-hundred food bags for the week to hand out to local families in need. We formed an assembly line and worked together to measure beans out to the exact right measurement, and divided out the rice, oil,  flour, etc. we did more preparations and organization for our ministry for the week and closed our time praying for the local missionaries. One of the areas we seek to help in as well as a team is to encourage the local missionaries because long after we’re gone they’re still here, and so we want to encourage them with the love of Christ! Please pray for them.

We ended the day with a nice meal (don’t worry, we had great meals the whole day, just didn’t mention that part above) and some quality time together sharing stories of who we are and how the Lord is working in our lives! Please pray for us as we begin our first ministry day tomorrow with the local people!
