Paddle Hard!

Posted by: Shaye
Today was amazing and wild! We went down to the Pacuare river to go white water rafting. We split up into three boats and paddled our way down the river. The sights were amazing! We floated through a canyon with a gorgeous waterfall, and even got to get out of the boat and swim. Our guide, Amanda, explained to us how our life is like a raft ride with God as our guide. We have to listen to God's voice to get through life, just like we have to listen to our guide to get through the river safely. We all had a blast! Oh yeah Faith flew out of the boat during one of the rapids but don't worry she is fine!

I agree with Shaye, today was amazing! The drive up was about 3 hours long but it was very beautiful to drive through the rainforest. We stopped for breakfast on the top of a mountain with a beautiful view. Once we got there we took a 1/2 mile hike down the mountain to the place where the ride started. It was really fun to ride through the rapids with our friends as it brought us closer together. We faced class 1-4 rapids and it was "muy fablioso!" It rained too but it felt good. We had excellent fruit half way through that included pineapple, watermelon, papaya, cantelope, and hearts of palm. At the end we had a great lunch of sandwiches. Thank you all for your prayers and comments, even though a lot of them were "irrelavant" ;)

Prayer Requests: That God would continue to work in the hears of our Seniors, for a safe drive and hike tomorrow, and for the continuation of the building of class unity.

Unfortunately, I am not sure if I am going to be able to get an internet connection tomorrow night. Rest assured, I will update the blog as soon as I am able! Stay tuned!
