Longest blog ever!! Just letting you know! 

Even though many were exhausted, we all woke up in time for breakfast and a follow up devotion on perseverance from the message the night before.

Here is how our day looked! We were chosen to evangelize in the morning and build after lunch. However God had other plans, don't really know why but we built first!

We were told in the beginning that we didn't have a lot of red paint left and to use as much as you can but they would have to finish later. The paint was prayed over for God to multiply it like Jesus did with the fish and loaves of bread. All walls were completely covered with red!!

Had to get on a mini bus and then off to evangelize!!

 So we thought...................

 Yup the bus broke down!! Long story short we did not get to evangelize due to a series of unfortunate events. 

Radiator was out of coolant and so were we. We made it to the gas station after a series of stops.

Just so you all know, it is super super hot. Muy Caliente!!! 

 We did get ice cream out of it thanks to in focus!!   Caleb went to jail.

Due to time we could not make it to the evangelism sites so we went back to the hotel. 

Yesterday two students had their expectations and here is what ended up happening for them.

Cali: Today seemed to go by quicker than yesterday and we got tons of work accomplished on the house but had an unexpected bus breakdown. The rest of the day went smooth and well.  

Josiah: Today was not what I expected. Bus broke down. No evangelizing. But the work went well and we made a lot of progress! 

Praise God! Truly, the unexpected. 

A little spicy uno until the others get back!  

Such a joy to see the friendships growing stronger with the team in moments like this. I couldn't resist.  

We then ate food, did worship, had a message and had a quick reflection on your comments. They are so encouraging especially when we miss you all so much!

Long day equals long blog. 

Two more students have some expectations. Here it is! 

Maddie: I expect for God to reveal things for me and that God will do the unexpected tomorrow when we are evangelizing and that we will all be bold. 

Kyle: As we start our evangelism on Friday, I expect God to stir a wanting in their hearts to come and listen to our testimonies and stories and find that they need a change. God will give us the courage and joy we need to show the love of Christ. 

Be praying for that! 

Goodnight fam!
