Friday afternoon we went into town to purchase supplies for our upcoming team. My boys think this is such a fun activity and like helping us pick out what they think the team will like.

We took the supplies home and then went back to town for supper. We had wanted to try Taco Bell again but the wait was over 30 minutes just to order so instead we went through the drive-thru. We got our food and carried it inside the mall and ate in the foodcourt so the boys could play on the playland.

Our contact in Lagunetas called late Friday night to tell us that he needed to cancel our Bible study for Saturday morning. He said there was going to be a rally (most likely political) in their village that day and thought it best if we didn't come. We were a little sad about that but a little relieved at the same time to have the day off. Instead we spent the whole day at home just hanging out.
On Sunday morning David traveled to Nearar for Bible study and the boys and I were at home. I spent some time that morning baking desserts for the upcoming week with the team.
I baked one of my favorite cakes- Cream Cheese Poundcake
and I also made a batch of chess squares. Cruz loves these!
Our team arrived on late Sunday afternoon. We got them checked into their rooms and then walked over to the hotel restaurant for supper.

We anticipate a great week ahead working alongside this fun group from First Baptist Church Mt. Pleasant, SC. We will spend three days doing door to door evangelism/ visitation and VBS in the village of Chanco. On Thursday we plan to be in Nearar that morning doing discipleship training and then in Muyurco that afternoon for our weekly Bible study. Would you pray God's blessings over us this week as we are out? Pray for safety of travel, good health, and for many divine appointments to share Christ with those who need to know Him.
