Hola Family and Friends!
The sun is shining and we are loving Cancun! We arrived yesterday with no complications, but we were very sleep deprived, but also ready to get going!
We arrived at the Back2Back ministry house and began to learn about the different places the organization works with. We headed out to ” Bonfil” which is a place where kids come Wednesday’s and Saturdays to learn about Jesus. We had the opportunity to use the things we prepared before the trip at Bonfil. We sang songs, did skits, taught them about David and Goliath and celebrated some of their birthdays. We were able to make great connections with the kids despite the language barrier.
Today (Sunday), we had the amazing opportunity to attend a Bilingual church (Vida Life). We were able to sing and be taught in both Spanish and English. It was amazing to experience a little piece of Heaven as there were many cultures and languages represented and how we were able to find complete freedom in our worship.
We spent the afternoon at the marketplace where we were able to buy souvenirs and barter with the store owners…it was a lot of fun!
Today could be summed up by the word “JOY.” There was a lot of laughter and excitement and our team bonded together really well. We are excited to see how the Lord will continue to move this week! Please pray for safety and stength as we head out to a construction site tomorrow to do some work.
