The weather is gorgeous
We found out that we will be in the cement mixing and laying business again this year. This time for a kitchen.
On Monday we will be distributing 400 new chicks with our church partners in horquetas.
On Wednesday we spend time with the children of the village. I hope we will see some of the 100 soccer balls we brought handed out then.
I read a little of "ragamuffin gospel" by Brennan manning on the flight. He writes "there we are-the multitude who so wanted to be faithful, who at times got defeated, soiled by life, and bested by trials, wearing the bloodied garments of life's tribulations, but through it all clung to the faith.". My hope is that, this week, we see each other as we ought to be seen - not as rich or poor or whatever - but as Gods own ragamuffins.....different in many ways but clinging to faith all the same. Peace in every step.....N
