I wrote this poem a few years ago…. each scenario something I’ve experienced. I feel compelled to share it again. This is just a reminder to teams how important it is to be the light in the darkness…. and to never stop praying that God will make Himself known to those who continue to suffer in silence.
We are SO excited to announce that on May 31st our Mole Missionary Family will grow by 5!! Matt and Lauren Epstein along with their 3 children (Genesis, Kelilah, & Micaiah) will be serving alongside our ministry as a family for a full year! WAHOO!
Some of us led the youth group today. With an age range of 12-30 years old we weren’t really sure what to expect, but we didn’t get anyone older than high school. Maddy said that we should teach them a game called ninja, and they loved it! Then Paul taught us about the story of Jonah, he did so well for his first time preaching to anyone!
The orphans were split into three teams participating in a round robin competition. Some of the events included a wheelbarrow race, three-legged race and jumping through hula- hoops. As a grand finale the Rooted team challenged each of the three teams.
Today was a really exciting day! My group left at 6:30 a.m. and we went to a boating village called Kapafu. The boat ride was really quick and we got a nice cloud cover on the way back so that was amazing.
Today I had some kids open up to me. Today I got to preach the gospel. I had God speak through me today to be translated and to touch the hearts of the girls and give them a smile that makes us smile.
