Wednesday was out third day in the jungle, and certainly a very interesting one. We finally started to get the hang of VBS, and it was so cool to see the children engaged and excited to sing, dance, play red light green light, and learn about Jesus.
It was during this time that some of the local teens we had been working with and their friends challenged our group to a soccer match that evening. The construction work at Antioch in the afternoon progressed smoothly enough, until it was determined that the most of the holes we had dug the day before were in the wrong place…. Despite the setbacks, the fence posts continued to come together, and we got a chance to work more closely alongside the school employees and get to know them better.
After dinner, Roberto and his family, as well as the missionaries living with them, paid us a visit and he shared with us his testimony.
The much anticipated match between team Ecuador and team USA took place soon afterwards. Team USA managed to hold their own for most of the match, with the final score being 7-9 for an Ecuadorian victory. The whole experience was a lot of fun for all involved, and a really cool way to build relationships with those we worked with and hung out with during our time here. Overall, it was another wonderful day in the jungle.
