This past Sunday after church the samonim invited us over to their house for lunch. After a wonderful meal, the daughters went into the kitchen and came out with a lit birthday cake for Shin’s 30th birthday. Yes.. he turned THIRTY this Monday!
In his own words, “FINALLY!”
After resting for about an hour we went to Ytororo Church for children’s service. About 15 of the Jovenes (Youth) came out to help. We sang songs with them and heard a message from P. Freddy. Then we all helped distribute soda and cookies.
A family that goes to Marangatu came that day to donate school supplies to each child along with a goody bag of toys. It was very touching.
After the children left we met under one of the trees to officially distribute tasks to each of the youth. About four people volunteered as Sunday school teachers, several people are going to manage snacks, one person is in charge of managing and bringing the craft supplies, I’m going to make corresponding crafts for the Bible studies.
The students hearts are ready and willing to serve the children. They are even spending their own money to bring a variety of snacks, like cakes and hot dogs instead of just tang and cookies. They’ve also been practicing choreographed dances, skits, and other ways of sharing the Gospel with children.
This past Sunday was a remarkable day because the jovenes committed to serve.
