Through the Eyes of a Service Team Member – Day 2

***Special guest bloggers Carolyn and Lynn from the Lawrence Free Methodist Church Service Team***

Today we group from Kansans had our first day of work. We split into groups to tackle several different projects simultaneously — a medical project, some construction work, a painting project, English lessons for moms, a Bible lesson with two groups of children, lots of soccer and volleyball and even some homework.

In the evening, the families from The Juniper Tree welcomed us into their homes and gave us an excellent Peruvian meal. Everyone on the team had a wonderful time meeting many hospitable Peruvians, working hard and seeing the faith of the children at the Oasis. The highlights of those working directly with children and moms was doing a language exchange with both children and mothers — learning Hebrews 11:1 in Spanish and English and learning numbers and body parts in both languages. We are excited about tomorrow and what God has for us.
