Well, Matt is going to change is career plans to become an Ecuadorian weatherman. His prediction about seeing volcanoes and rain was correct again yesterday. We did not see volcanoes from our roof, and it did not rain! Today, Steve saw only a tiny part of Cotopaxi, so Matt's prediction is 10% chance of scattered showers. We will see if that holds true.
We had a good day yesterday of Vacation Bible School and painting. The kids behaved much better and learned about Zaccheus. They loved the photos of themselves! Today the lesson is about Jesus feeding the 5000, and our memory verse is "I am the bread of life." (pan de vida). We finished painting the outer wall, the blue room (picture above of Megan painting the room) and the salon. We only have touch up work to do today, then we are finished with our work here. The building team cleaned up the yard from all of the dirt and supplies so it can be used for the meal this evening. We went back to our hostel and packed the gift bags for the children. They will have a t-shirt, soap, shampoo, silly band, tooth brush, toothpaste, socks, a towel and sidewalk chalk. We will give them out this afternoon at the end of our program. (one picture above is of our team assembling the bags) We had dinner in our hostel (Papa Johns pizza) and played Phase 10 (a longgggg card game). It was fun just hanging out in the hostel.
Bruce - Kathy wants to know if Dave made it to Brazil. She is eagerly awaiting your message!
Thanks again for all of the comments and prayers. We can't believe that our time here is almost over, and are anxiously awaiting our trip back home. Have a blessed day!
