California Here They Come

Our short-term mission team from Soaring Oaks Presbyterian Church of Elk Grove, California and Faith Presbyterian Church of Sonoma, California has just left.  After nearly two weeks of service they are headed home.

On Monday and Tuesday the team added a new roof to Pastor Melvin’s house.  Melvin is one of the local Pastors in Armenia Bonito.  This was a blessing for him and his family.

Kids ClubOn Monday the team lead a Kids Club for 50 kids.  After a few games out on the field they lead the kids in a couple of Spanish children’s worship songs.  The team then performed six skits for the kids all demonstrating examples of good trees and bad trees baring their fruit.  The Kids Club concluded with watercolor art crafts…a new medium for the kids.

English classTuesday afternoon was the second English class taught by the team.  The class began with examples of how to answer a phone then moved to reading comprehension.  In the second half of the class each member of the short-term team took one or two Hondurans into a small group and worked on vocabulary, pronunciation and reading.  The students all practiced their reading from the book of Luke.

We are sad to see this team leave and greatly appreciate their efforts.  Now it is time to prepare for our next team that arrives on Saturday.
