We'll start our photo tour with two pictures of the church building being built there in Chinchil. We had hoped to help put the roof on, but they were still cutting the wood for the joists. They hope to start the roof next week.
|The first floor (basement) has 4 rooms for classrooms. The auditorium is on the second floor where people can walk in from the "street."|
I knew some of the construction men would want to see how the floor is done. The canes will be covered with a packed dirt or some cement if they can afford it.
|The afternoon kid's club started on the town's soccer field with games. This seemed to have been the first time the kids had played the "stomp on the balloon" game.|
|The ARRIBA students did the skits to introduce the theme of each lesson.|
|Five different ladies from church taught the lessons. This afternoon was Becky's turn. None of us are sure what she had them raising their hands for!|
|Emily leads the theme song (Follow, Follow I will Follow Jesus) while Johana and Maria hold the words. Jesus came to save sinners and give His life as the price to redeem.|
|The craft time came last. With 100 kids we needed every ARRIBA student and young lady from church.|
|Maria helps with the gluing.|
|Melly's group with their finished booklets showing the days of creation.|
|One of our favorite pictures. One of the little boys looking at his finished booklet.|
|Now something to eat before getting ready for the service. The food was good - thanks to Pastor Josue's wife.|
|The last sight of our suitcases for about 30 hours.|
|Great bonding time for the group.|
|Some are even smiling after "sleeping" all night on rocks with the temperature in the low 50s. |
Though this wasn't what we had planned, we thank the Lord for His care and safety all the way home.
