Day 2 was a great day. We spent the morning bulding a new house for a widow in the mountains of Guatemala. The concrete foundation and verticle support beams were already in place, so we were able to get right to putting up the walls/roof of the house. The day was filled with firsts for people. First time swinging a hammer, first time putting on a roof, first time connecting with someone from a different culture. The widow and her family mostly only speak Keche, not spanish. So we had to communicate through 2 sets of translators (one to spanish one the keche and then back again) That was a first for me!
After we were finished building the house we spent some time ministering to and praying with the family. We were able to share with them that the gift of this house was not from us but directly from Jesus.
In the afternoon, we headed up even further into the mountains and participated in one of pray america’s feeding programs. This evening that fed and ministered to about 250 mountain residents. It was great seeing the team play with the kids and spend some precious time with these people.
After our dinner back at the House of Prayer, we had some AWESOME time in worship and the Word. The Holy Spirit really showed up. At one point I heard Luke Jones say, “Looks like we are having a camp meeting”. Which, if you know anything about VFC’s youth camps, that is a very good thing.
- That we would share about Jesus without fear
- That we would be sensitive to all the opportunities He makes for us
