Yesterday was our final day of work and we were able to take part in some amazing things.
First, we continued to do construction work on a future site for Happy Tummies–an after school ministry where kids receive food, teaching, love, and the message of Jesus.
Next, some people spent time with the “Abuelitos” helping them with a craft we brought and with the crafts that they like to make.
We ended the day with “Happy Feet.” Around 200 people gathered in a local church and we fitted each one of them with shoes that YOU donated to us! We each knelt down, took off a shoe, went to our stockpile, searched for one that would fit them well, and then placed the pair on their feet. It was a long process but it was a blessing to see the smiles on people’s faces as they received a new pair of shoes fitted just for them. For free.
As we wind the trip down (today we’re traveling to Antigua where we’ll stay before we fly out tomorrow morning), I hope you realize that the stories of how God has worked in everyone’s lives can’t be contained in these blog posts or short videos. I hope you’ll talk to the students and adults to hear more as we all return!
Hopefully we’ll post another entry before heading home. In the meantime you can watch Part 2 of our favorite moments on the trip so far:
