It was exciting to arrive in the community. We were very well received. In the first week, we invited the women of the community for a cooking class, which was very good for us to mingle. We did many medical appointments and on each one of them we had the opportunity to pray with and for the patient and his/her family. It was very special.
We planned our schedule, shared moments together in the morning devotional, sang hymns, prayed and learned more of Christ and His purpose for us. At the end of the afternoon, each day, we also studied the Sabbath school lesson.
During a complicated medical appointment, we were able to give away a children’s booklet about Jesus. We were involved twice in the small prayer group, sharing the word of God, socializing, and we also brought a snack to share with them. It was awesome! These are the moments when we get to know each other better and form friendships.
It is a simple and humble reality in the midst of nature, no comparison to anything we’ve lived before. It has been a blessing and a great lesson.
