The 17-person short-term mission team from East Lanier Community Church in Buford, GA is doing some amazing work.
Saturday was a wonderful event. We continued the World Cup theme to our ministry by hosting a one-day soccer tournament for 60 boys from Armenia Bonito. We took the kids by bus to an indoor soccer facility and organized a tournament with two divisions – young kids and older kids. Each kid received free water, lunch and played in four or more organized games. The members of the team from East Lanier were amazingly helpful and worked hard, they even formed their own team and played in the tournament.
Sunday was a busy day. We started with breakfast at the Clow’s home. The East Lanier team participated in a videoconference with their home church. Following the videoconference our team provided a 2 ½ hour child molestation training for the adults. With lunch in the car the team was taken on a one-hour tour of La Ceiba. In the afternoon we hosted English worship in our home. After dinner we all jumped in the vans and drove out to Armenia Bonito to attend a Spanish church service. What a busy day!
The team leaves on Wednesday morning, but they still have lots of great work ahead of them.
