Through the Eyes of a Service Team Member – Day 3

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

“We have the joy, joy, joy, joy down in our hearts”

What a great day we had on our 2nd day of work!

Our medical team got out of the comfort zone of the clinic and went out into the streets to serve those in need. Many came to get medicine for skin diseases and the team was able to perform some minor surgeries.

Our construction team got to work in both The Juniper Tree and The Oasis today, working on some finishing projects to make the places better for the children. They appreciate the opportunity to serve.

Our girls loved the language exchange today with the women of The Oasis. They learned the parts of the body, how to count to ten and basic greetings in Spanish and taught the Peruvian moms those words in English. They ended their lessons singing in English and Spanish “I have the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart.” In Spanish, this song ends with “…because Christ saved me.”

We are grateful to Christ for His salvation and are filled with joy.
