We are back again! Today was an amazing experience as we had the opportunity to invest for a full day at the school. Our work shift was in the morning and ran from 8:30-12:00. The kids did an amazing job furthering work on the projects we began yesterday! Some of our projects include helping with the foundation for a new classroom building, doing work filling around a new septic system for their new bathrooms and helping dispose of an old wood deck that was on the back of the residence home. Great progress was made today! After our work shift, we enjoyed a delicious lunch and walk downtown to enjoy some ice cream. Around 3:00PM, we headed back to the school and hosted a small field day for the girls in the residence home and the children of the missionaries on campus. It was such a sweet afternoon of playing games and connecting with those children. By the end of the time, we felt we had built some special bonds and many laughs were shared! Today has been closed out with dinner, worship and preparations for tomorrow. Please enjoy some pictures from the day below and also a couple more blurbs from our students!
Today was my favorite day of the trip so far. We started off the day by going to JKC and we worked on constructing a new building on the campus. We got so much done so that felt AMAZING! But my absolute favorite thing that happened today was having the opportunity to go back to JKC after lunch and play with the kids. I met so many girls who were so excited to see and hand out with us. They were constantly putting a smile on my face and were just so excited to see and hang with all of us. They are truly the sweetest kids and were the highlight of my day. I saw the Holy Spirit in each of these girls through their positive attitudes and bright personalities. I loved being able to spend time with them and they already have such a special place in my heart.
Hey y’all! It’s Lily Moore, and this is my first time coming to Ecuador! I was ecstatic to be able to finally come on the trip this year, and although it has not gone the way I thought it would, I am just so incredibly grateful to be here. Today, I got the chance to do the devotion and to share God’s word with my teammates and I am so glad that I got the opportunity to do so. I spoke about trusting the Lord and putting your full trust in Him. I referenced Psalm 62:8, as it talks about trusting in Him at all times and pouring your heart into Him because He is our refuge. He has the solutions to the problems, questions, and burdens that feel impossible to be solved. He has the wisdom we need for living each day. I am so thankful I was given the opportunity to share with the amazing people on the trip with me and I am so excited to see what else the trip holds for us. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers! Thank you!
