After the school ended and we had a small lunch we went to San Pedro, where one of the congregation, America, took us to visit some families. This was the tough part of the day. It was really warm, about 26 degrees Celsius and the in those little houses under the tin roofs it felt like being in a oven. One of the homes we visited was Sullie's. She was really upset and scared, not because of our visit, but because she had been broken into on Monday. Now, Sullie does not have much to steal, but they did ransack her little home and destroy some things on her.
On a lighter note, Anderson has being doing a lot of the translating for me in these homes. I seem to manage to get so far and then I take mental blocks, but yesterday was funny. I was getting my Spanish and English words mixed up. It is hard to explain, but yesterday evening over dinner at Anderson's house, the most of the conversation was in English. At one stage I couldn't bring to mind an English word I was looking for and had to ask Anderson, in Spanish, what the English translation was. Everyone laughed so much.
Prayer is so important all the time, but especially when we are on the front line. Please keep us covered by praying for:
- Our continual health and safety
- The kids at Cristo Redentor
- All the homes we visited yesterday
- Especially for Sullie and her children
- Anderson and Isabel, thanking God for their servant hearts
