Almost Time!

Posted Jan 4, 2017

Today was great! We feel like new people after getting a full night of sleep last night. We spent the day at our team’s church and doing some training and team bonding.  We played some ice breakers and we laughed a lot together, which is definitely an answered prayer!  

While we were at the church today, Tuty (their camp director) told us how their church building, which is very nice, was donated by a man in Kansas. She also told us and showed us pictures of families from their church that are currently missionaries in other countries. It struck me how cool it is to see the body of Christ at work, for each other, all over the world:

A man in Kansas donates a church in El Salvador –> a church in El Salvador sends missionaries all over the world –> those missionaries impact all those countries …meanwhile, a group of Americans come to the church a man in Kansas donated to partner with a group of passionate people who want to learn how to do camp –> they invite people from the neighborhood around their church to attend camp –> those kids go home and tell their families…and so on and so on. God is just so awesome and he pursues his people and uses his people for His glory and purposes.

Then, we also ran through the skit for the week, which had us cracking up. The local team is responsible for the skits this year and they did awesome in planning it!
{skit practice}

Everyone on our team has done an awesome job of jumping right in and trying new things and new foods! We are so excited to START CAMP tomorrow! 

Prayer requests:

-That our team would be courageous and jump in even though we don’t know the language.

-That the kids’ hearts would be soft to hearing the Gospel this week.

-That kids would feel loved by us even though we don’t speak their language. 

We are so excited and I will post pics of camp tomorrow!

Until then,

Tu Confidentes (your counselors 🙂

  1. Love you guys and praying for y’all!! Thank you for the updates! Praying that the Gospel is spread and received this week!

    Laura Kathryn and Austin

  2. Love seeing and hearing how the Lord is working through this incredible team of confidentes already!! You all are incredible – praying that you will be constantly reminded of the Lord’s presence, power, and unconditional love as you build relationships with these beautiful people in El Salvador. And eat a papusa for me! 🙂

  3. Hey team! I’m praying that God will first use this trip to sanctify and transform you as you examine your life as a follower of Jesus, cry out to Him for His work to be done in and through you and walk in the spirit allowing His life to overflow through you! Praying that God would soften your hearts and show you any sinful way and that you would turn to him in complete surrender and confession. I’m so excited to see how God will use your willingness to serve there to not only proclaim the gospel but to transform your personal lives! I pray that you would boast in your weaknesses that God’s power might be displayed! In all you do, do it with ALL your heart, not as working for men, but it is the Lord you serve! “The Son of man did not come to be served but to serve and give His life away!” ❤ to you all but especially my sweet hubby and Coby!

  4. Yay for awesome skits!!! Can’t wait to hear how it goes!
    Loved reading about the intricacies of God’s plan to reach lost souls! How awesome that y’all can be a part of that.
    Praying today that you’d experience deep satisfaction in JESUS alone so that you’d be able to boldly try new things and jump in with the culture – because there’s nothing to lose! 🙂
    Love you guys!!!

  5. Praying for hearts and minds to be changed and Jesus to be glorified. I will pray those kids will never be the same after the Pine Cove experience. Have fun and let the love flow to those precious children. So proud of you guys stepping out of your comfort zones to glorify God.

  6. Prayers for each one of you as you head to camp. That you will be blessed as God works thru you. Continue you the awesome work….Continual prayers. Love you Lilly

  7. It’s a blessing to know the Lord is at work through you guys. I’ll be praying for you guys. God bless. I Miss ya Lils.
