Day 2 – Church, Bibles, and Food Bags
Today was our first day without any traveling. We went to church this morning and some of us were able to help with the children’s church where we played many fun games like Gato Gordo (translation: the fat cat). Basically, the children stuff as many marshmallows into their mouths as possible and try to say gato gordo. We then told them the story of Jonah and the great fish – a story they had never heard before.
We also delivered food bags to some locals in the community. These food bags were a small gift for all the effort they have put in to help the church and others. Witnessing the way most people throughout the world live has really caused us to appreciate all the things we have been blessed with and how lucky we are to live where we do. Today we also picked up the Miskitu Bibles which we will be handing out tomorrow as we travel to Bismona – a small village that we will be staying at for two days.
*There will be a short lapse in posts from Monday until Thursday, as we will be in very rural areas that rarely have electricity and needless to say do not have Wifi (just so you don’t think our absence from the interwebs signals something more tragic than lack of internet access). We’ll be sure to flood your feeds and this blog with pictures and stories when we return!
