Thank you Lancaster Covenant Church for taking such a large step of faith and joining us at Give Hope 2 Kids. Coming to a 3rd world country with a lot of instability takes a good amount of courage and faith, and you did it to be examples of faith and love to all of us here who will hold on to the memories and cherish them.
The various STRUGGLES turned to accomplishments that made everlasting influences.
Once they arrived in San Pedro and got into a sketchy van without seats they were finally able to spend the night in a "quiet"place.... never mind the knobless air conditioner and the loud ranchero music out in the street. The next day, they climbed into another van (not so sketchy) for three hours.... and for the final two hours they got in the back of this.....
Once here, they faced the STRUGGLES of working in this heat.
Lots and lots of painting
Not only is working a struggle, but also the way of commuting from place to place can challenge many. In this trip we hiked, and hiked and hiked
And once again... with hard work... and with great adventure/play comes a need for rest.
Throughout the struggles, I thank the Lancaster team for such great attitudes throughout the entire mission. With these struggles we all saw such great Accomplishments.
Landing safely "thank you God"
Beautiful paint job on the volunteer home and kids bedrooms...cleaned up the place and looks amazing
Office computer desks
Freeing "Jordan's Rock"
Making every Hiking destination
Experiencing and trying new things
Appreciating the advancements in the country you live in
and most importantly.........
showing your love
and developing lasting relationships.
As the week went by we noticed a group that became that much closer with each other and with the family of Give Hope 2 Kids through the tough times and the fun times.
What a roller coaster of events to show God's will and be a living example. From the ups and the downs to the struggles and the accomplishments; Lancaster church did it all with such great attitudes and always sharing their love to all of us here at Give Hope 2 Kids and the community near by.
Thank you all for making the journey in faith and for the church for supporting and allowing such an amazing group to come and help.
Thank you for partnering with us in prayer!
