Work team day 3! So much painting! This house / ministry center / guest house is transforming. I really enjoy having this group of people here to work with, speak English with, and play corn hole with.

Today something really neat happened. Felipe, one of the local pastors, and another Felipe came over to help with all the work. If neither Mark nor Serena were around some of the team would ask me to translate between them and the nationals. Being asked to translate may not seem like a big deal, but to me it most definitely was. It made me realize that I am learning more and more Spanish every day here. I also realized that the nationals already consider me a friend and are willing to try and have a conversation with me. I seriously could not have asked God to surround me with a more accepting and loving group of people. And that goes for back in Ohio, in Wilmore at Asbury, and here in Saltillo.
