Our short-term mission team has been very active. These missionaries from Soaring Oaks Presbyterian Church of Elk Grove, California and Faith Presbyterian Church of Sonoma, California are doing a great job.
On Sunday we attended one of the churches in Armenia Bonito. Three of the youth from the short-term team went to the front and sang a worship song for the congregation. Pastor Andrews, with the help of an interpreter, preached a message on Psalm 110.
Monday morning the team started their first day of construction. They finished the cement floor on a house we are building for Marcos and Jolie. The group mixed cement and applied and smoothed the floor. It was hard work on a hot day.
In the afternoon the team put on a Kids Club for 22 youth in Armenia Bonito. We all played soccer and then went into the community center. The team told a gospel presentation using the color method. After the story the team helped the kids make necklaces using colored beads.
The group is doing well, if not a little tired after the first day.
