Today was our first day to get to give back, to pour ourselves out. We traveled about 20 minutes outside of Rosarito where we spent the morning building walls for a new church and for the pastor's house next to the church. All the kids were absolutely amazing! They worked HARD! We loved watching them working as a team. No complaining, no 'when can we take a break?'. They were focused and on a mission to complete their task at hand.
After a yummy sandwich, we took off to walk the local township where we went door to door inviting families to an empty lot in their neighborhood. Several students shared their testimonies, and one of our group pastors shared the gospel in a loving and relevant way. Many people made the decision to make Jesus their Lord and Saviour! We were able to pray with them and for them, as well as give them bibles and a Purple Book. Gracias a Dios!!
This morning, Caila said "I am nervous yet so excited to share my testimony with everyone and see the impact it may have on them. I have faith in God though, that my testimony and other's will help lead people to Him."
At the end of the day, Josiah said, "I realize how lucky I am to already have things built and to have Jesus around me. I found out that nailing boards is actually fun, too. And the people of Baja are ready to know who Jesus is."
God is doing incredible things in the lives of this team and through this team!
We can't wait to tell you in person!
We miss you all!!
