Belize 2013 Team Bulletin Day 5

Well, we’re more than half way through our week. The weather has been hot, especially today because there was no breeze or rain, thunder later in the afternoon, but no rain.

In VBS we had our lesson on the Fruit of the Spirit. We taught the verse Gal. 5:22-23 and did a cow craft where on the back they were encouraged to draw the fruit of the Spirit. We sang a pretty cool song called “the Fruit of the Spirit is not a Coconut” with fun actions and sounds. Most of the kids got into it, but with the wide range of ages, some thought they were too cool. We even had a guest farmer come and tell us about his new farm and how he fed his pigs pizza and couldn’t decide what flavor Gatorade to put on his crops. This was Farmer Sam (Bob M) and he needed to spend some time with and get to know a real farmer to learn how to work a farm right! We’ll see him tomorrow too.

The construction guys have been doing a great job on the fence. They finished all the columns and need to put the top rail on and add a bit more concrete to the bottom. The electrical team has expanded and are still not quite seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. They’re definitely getting close. The ladies have only one more door to put a 2nd coat of varnish on, but the doors look really nice.

Guess what we had for lunch? Yup, CHICKEN!!! Even still, every time it’s slightly different and always very tasty. Today they made a kind of small corn meal tortillas and we ate them open faced or like a mini soft taco. Dinner was scrambled eggs and tomato on homemade flour tortillas…mmm.

We’re all exited and saddened at the same time about our last day at VBS. We only had about 50ish today. I found out that there is another team doing a VBS in the area from the States as well. As a matter of fact, I think they’re from MTW also. This is the third VBS that has come to the church and all were very different, but the Lord knows what he’s doing and he can and will draw whomever he chooses to himself in his timing. Hopefully all the kids that made professions will continue to grow in the Lord. Most are not in great families and don’t have great role models. We need to continue to pray for these children to come closer to the Lord.

I’m sorry I don’t have any pictures today but will try to get some tomorrow! See you then!
