Christmas part 1   1 comment

I arrived to a hot Iquitos, but God graciously put rainclouds in the sky this weekend! Friday Mama Luz and I, and some helpers, took 25 kids to a cultural (art) museum. Now the kids are planning to have their own art exhibition like the one in the photo.

Club on Sunday went great. There were 80 kids. We met in the new building on the second floor. It´s not ready, but we have officially moved out of the tiny ¨church¨ building we are in. We will still have an inauguration when the sanctuary is ready downstairs, but it was so great to have space and not be squished and hot! Yea!!!

I read to them the Nativity story from a Donkey´s perspective. Thanks to Nueva Vida, my Spanish church, for donating this book (and many other toys and educational games for the kids to have at the children´s center which opens in January).

After playing games with balloons, the children made door hangers with bells and ribbon. In the picture, my niece Greysi is wearing hers like a necklace. They will give the bells to their parents, along with Christmas cards they decorated.

Then they ate juani, a typical food of rice, chicken, a boiled egg and an olive wrapped up in a leaf.

On a personal note, Josué and I have been in a spiritual attack the past month or so. We have been seeking God more, and are close to opening the children´s center, being a light in the neighborhood to hundreds of children and their families. Plus we are involved in this huge project, managing a lot of money, and we’ve never been in charge of something on this scale…all in our first year of marriage. We have won some recent battles—thanks be to God!—and are seeking God together. We appreciate your continued prayers for us!
