What another awesome day God has given our team!  The day began with a beautiful sunny morning and a clear view of Agua Volcano. Our bus trip to Santiago Zamora was quicker today and had less traffic because we took an alternate route to avoid local road construction.

The roof construction crew got right to work as soon as we arrived at World’s Redeemer Lutheran Church, while the VBS  crew prepared to tell how God is our protector and superhero through the story of David and Goliath. The students helped act out the story and Tim Turner was an awesome Goliath complete with a tin shield, helmet and big stick.

After a delicious lunch provided by the women of World’s Redeemer, the men went back to painting building steel. The women prepared for Project JOEL and took the 90-minute drive to Villa Lobos Sur Middle School. Today we discussed speaking lovingly to others as well as to ourselves. The students are getting used to us and are beginning to open up more. We enjoyed music, dancing, activities and discussion. Our craft of making bracelets was well received. The students taught us many new bracelet patterns.

The men finished painting roof support steel and started erecting the roof today. Tomorrow they will finish erecting the framing steel and start installing corrugated sheet steel.

We have been very blessed with an amazing, godly team and a wonderful LHM—Guatemala staff.  Thank you, Faith Lutheran Church and families for all your love, support and prayers!
