El Salvador Awaken Tour Part 2

Hey everyone!

The week is winding down here in El Salvador but it’s been a very fruitful time. We began this week clearing an area to install a retaining wall at the lower part of  one of the neighborhoods in New Hope Community. We hauled bags of sand weighing about 70 pounds and then carried blocks to their locations. Mixing the mortar by hand reminded me much of my Nigeria times.

2016-06-06 17.06.16 The area we are in is the same as the NC WAVE Team worked in last year. We are happy to be back building a relationship with the community and assessing their needs.

The work has continued all week with us progressing up the hill to an area outside of Mirrim’s house. The community agreed that they needed a retaining wall built in this section. The work has been tiring but rewarding. Each day we are carrying blocks, bags of sand or cement and doing a lot of digging and clearing.2016-06-09 16.00.37 The project should be complete tomorrow and we will have a small celebration at the end of the day for those in that section.

We got to spend some time with the kids in the houses around where we are building. We played several games and hung out with them for a couple hours.

We also got to celebrate Myra’s birthday and see Papi, which is Jorge’s Campos’ grandfather. Through the years, several have stayed with Papi and enjoyed his hospitality.

One other great thing for this week has been sharing with the deaf WAVE team. They came over for a couple hours and we caught up with each other. They were very excited when we presented them with 8 Amazon Fires donated by various people from Vision 2 Hear. After they got them all set up, we took some time to run through several songs, which they remembered well!

I’ll post again once I get back to the USA about the last few events. Thanks for your prayers and support of V2H and the effort in El Salvador! God is moving and blessing in awesome ways.

Awaken Tour El Salvador

We have been in ES for a few days now and just completed the #searchingcamp weekend with college students. It was a great time with about 20 students and then staff and volunteers from Fe Vive Church. We traveled out about 2 hours in the back of this truck and ascended into the mountains surrounded by a lake. camp 4

We helped decorate the facility and prepare for the weekend. When the students arrived, they were mostly new to each other and certainly to us. The group was composed of local college students that had a connection to the pastor who also teaches at the college but most of these students are not completely connected to a church.

The weekend consisted of three sessions, along with music we performed. The church team had a great amount of games, activities and experiences to tie in the theme of the weekend. Saturday night was the culmination of the experiences with all going through several stations demonstrating Christ’s love.

On Sunday, we had several stand for recommitment to Christ and start their semester break with a renewed understanding of how God is searching for them and seeking after them. It was awesome! Pray for us as we leave now to begin working in a community installing a pipe system and VBS.

Comfortable?

What is it you are praying for most? Do you want your life to be comfortable or significant? It’s not impossible for it to be both, but God is much more concerned in shaping us and making us into the image of His son, than making us “comfortable”. Being comforted is different than being comfortable. Being conformed to the image of Jesus is the only way to lead a significant life now that will matter later and this often only happens through discomfort and discontentedness. If God has placed you in an uncomfortable situation rest assured that He will bring you through and the things you learn and who you become will be far more valuable than any “comfort” this life would procure.‪#‎lifecoach‬‪#‎mentor‬‪#‎discipleship‬‪#‎disciple‬‪#‎vision2hear‬‪#‎v2hwave‬‪#‎v2hawaken‬
