Team from Glen Acres Baptist Church
Today was a tough but great day! Our team worked in 2 locations today: at a school in Los Alcarrizos this morning and at the Open Walls Church this afternoon.
At the school, we had an amazing time with a group of 50 children doing outddoor and indoor activities: parachutes, face painting, stickers, colouring, blowing bubbles, stickers, popping balloons, making bracelets, stickers, and catching tennis balls with velcro gloves. Oh, and stickers!
This afternoon, we joined the rest of the group at the Open Walls Church and worked alongside as many people as were available to try to pour the rest of the cement floor before sundown. We didn’t quite finish, but only have about 2 hours (according to Cristian) worth of cement-mixing, wheelbarrowing, and pouring to finish this job so that we can meet there tomorrow night for a celebration worship service. If the teamwork that was evident this afternoon is present tomorrow morning, I’m sure Cristian will be right!
