Today has already been a long day! This morning we were prepared to work with the kids at a Sunday School, but the Lord had other plans. When we arrived at the church in La Carpio, we joined up with another Joshua group to do some manual labor. We split up into three groups, some of us working with the children, another group cutting and welding wires, and a third group hauling over a thousand cinder blocks. It was hard work in the sun, but thankfully it was not quite as humid as it is in Florida, although it is as hot.

Right now we are relaxing at the beautiful hotel, and tonight we will be going to a church service at La Carpio. It will be all in Spanish, which should be quite an experience.

Prayer Request: Please continue to pray for everyone to stay healthy and safe, as we are not working in the best part of town. We miss you all! -- Gayle
