Today was Dad’s 53rd birthday and Lucas and Ryan’s Preschool graduation. I am sad to miss things like that but I know God wants me here right now.
All the men worked on the kitchen reconstruction while the women painted the upstairs hallway and one of the bathrooms.
For dinner we had over three local pastors and their families. They all told us how grateful they were for us to be here and how we were a blessing. One of the pastor’s wife, whom I had previously met wanted to talk with me since I was the only one, aside from the Dunbars, whom she had met and that could speak a little bit of Spanish. But we were able to have a conversation in 100% Spanish and it was so amazing to be able to talk with her! I am learning more and more each day and it is so exciting!
After dinner everyone gathered together and we took a video of us all saying “Feliz Cumpleanos” to my dad. It was very sweet of everyone here to join in because they knew it meant a lot to me.
I have met truly amazing people already in my time here and I am so excited to see more of what God has in store!
