"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this; to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
~James 1:27

This Week is Zipping By!

Sorry that I didn’t get to post a blog yesterday. The power was out in Borja for much of the day so I wasn’t able to get on the internet. VBS has gone well for the last 2 days!

Singing at VBS!

Working on crafts
We were able to pass out the toothbrushes and toothpaste that Cami and Grace collected at school and the kids really enjoyed their goody bags. Yesterday we were able to go to the local watering hole. The water was really cold and Tracy, Cami, and Grace where the only ones brave enough to actually go swimming. There were also some swings their too.

The brave ones swimming in the cold water!

Swinging by the water hole
We are still loving play games in the park with the kids. When we are done with VBS, we go out to the park and many of the kids from VBS come out to play with us some more. They are so fun to be around!

These adorable kids in the park were fixing their bike
 Tonight we were able to go to a local restaurant and check out the good food there. It was a neat experience ordering off the Spanish menu. Please pray for the team as some of us have started getting sick over the last couple of days. Please pray for our strength and good health so that we can finish out the week strong. We're loving Ecuador!
