my prayer partner knows that i am a little anxious about going with this team. they are fearless sharers of the gospel. praise God anxiety and awkwardness is a foreign concept to them. (because then there's me) while i have made giant steps in sharing my faith boldly, i am still giant steps behind these guys.
now for a few pictures from our summer trip.
a few as in enough pictures to trigger carpal tunnel!
our group of young men prepared a sermon on the the power of prayer. it was awesome!
this is not the best picture, but one of the best moments of the trip.
(i my son is teary eyed.)while these trip include a lot of fun, they also include "real" work. i rarely pull out my camera when we are sharing with others. i do not want our mission to turn into a photo op.
i did manage to snap this one picture of patrick while we were in a home storying. the guest walked to the kitchen for more cheesecake and i snapped a quick one. this young man did a wonderful job!
we visited the macahchi fire department. the firemen were so kind and welcoming! enough to make our visit feel like an elementary school field trip. our guys got to shoot the hose :)
this is the moment my volcano fears began. the firemen showing off the shiny new evacuation buses just sent in from quito.
jack came up with some great games for the school kids.
pretty funny at times.
thank you darwin for the wonderful lunch.
the fried plantains are out of this world!
this puppy followed us several blocks to the fire department.
when we were gathering our bags to leave, we found him curled up underneath.
my biggest hugs were from these to beautiful ladies! they made a special trip all the way across town to hug us goodbye!i am looking so forward to seeing all of these sweet faces again!
