Hola! It's 8:30 pm here and we just finished supper about 20 mins ago. Yet another full day : ) This morning, we went to a village area (poor area) not too far out of the city. The YWAM staff run a weekly children's program there on Saturdays...so, we tagged along to offer our assistance. (We also brought along a few of our donated items -- a bar of soap and toothbrush for each child).
We enjoyed our time with the children -- they are well behaved and grateful. And it was great to watch our new YWAM friends in action (and try to figure out the bible story, even though it was in Spanish). We came back to the base to change, and then climbed into the vehicles en route to Apaneca. We stopped for a bite to eat on the way and drove for an hour and a half to the Apaneca Canopy Tours (ziplining). The team has been working really hard all week...so it was great to treat everyone to an afternoon of fun (and a first time experience for so many). We brought almost all of the YWAM team along to treat them to a fun afternoon also. The pics help tell the rest of the story.
