"Cock-a-doodle doo" went the rooster...all night. When we woke up to the rooster in the morning, we got out of bed, went to breakfast, and began our day. I'm pretty sure we've had beans with every meal so far. After breakfast, we had TAG Time (Time alone with God) where we get alone, read our Bibles, and pray. After TAG Time, we hopped into the bus and headed to the first site, where we blew bubbles, jumped rope, played soccer, and enjoyed a game of Pato, Pato, Ganzo. (duck duck goose). By the way, we are all pretty much pros at Spanish now. After a lovely meal at the mission, (which included beans, of course) we went to the second site, which was a great turn out! The children are so sweet and though there is a language barrier, they seem to understand the point of our mission.

After the game time at VBS, we had worship, a puppet show with a message, a lesson from Genesis, testimonies, crafts, prayer, and, of course, snacks! The kids chased after our bus for quite a while after we left the site. It was the cutest thing ever! We came back for an early dinner, which consisted of rice, BEANS, salad, and chips. After the quick meal, we visited a Spanish church's HIGH ENERGY youth service. We jumped to every song. It was so awesome to see people of all nations and generations worshiping the Lord in spirit and in truth. It was long and in Spanish, but we had some of it translated. Pamela and Mrs. Barnhill told us that the pastor was talking about the qualities of great people.

After the service, we were treated to ice cream at a local shop. It took us about thirty minutes to figure out what the flavors were, and by the end, we still didn't know what we were eating. But it was muy delicioso! If it weren't for Pamela and our new friend Nacho, we don't know where we'd be.

And that brings us to right now, as we are blogging and getting ready to go to sleep. We need to rest because we have a big day ahead of us. Please play that the roosters get a good night's sleep too. :) We are having a lot of fun, but we miss you all mucho! Hasta manana,

Casey and Kayli and the rest of the senior class, and Mr. and Mrs. Barnhill

P.S. Ashlie says hi

We love your blog, funny and inspiring. Despite the language barrier, you all are making great progress and should feel good about your mission there! To be able to reach young children with God's word is so rewarding! Continue to be inspired and know God and all of your family and friends appreciate all of your hard work AND the sacrifice having to eat ALL of those BEANS! LOL!

Much Love,
Ellen and Lou Hadden

Hi Y'all!!
Greetings from Mobile Alabama!
You must be getting close to your last day with your VBS kids. I am sure you are having mixed emotions, and have made GREAT new friends! So proud of you all for the blessing you have been, and the message you have given to these kids. You have let them see the your lights shine, and your love for Christ come through in the effort you have made to come there and minister to their hearts. Lots of love. Can't wait for chapel on Friday!! xoxoxoxo Ms. K
