Dia De Mujers



Dia De Mujers…Day of the Women. The Ladies of the church planned a special day at the Children’s Lighthouse facility. A time and break from motherly duties (the youth and men cared for the children) to listened to an “uninterrupted” message, fellowship, eat play games ect. They invited 5 churches to participate and ladies from around the property to come. The weather was perfect, 80 were present at the time of the teaching by Lisa. Her lesson on what’s in your purse changed the hearts of 2 ladies who trusted Christ Jesus as Saviour. Amen! Lisa’s new unfinished outdoor kitchen was tested as they fed everyone. The children/babies and men watching them for the 5 hour event numbered 55 more mouths to feed, water and change. Most of the men did fine…(with the young girls help). Only a few men hid out(Carlos) and were conveniently too busy doing other things to help with the babies:) The 3 New Hampshire kids visiting from Bethel Baptist did great even though Sasha and Cami felt ill most of the day. At the end of the day after the second truck breaks down... How do you pack 30+ women plus children plus 4 American kids plus their stuff into a 6 passenger Kia for a long rough mountain road trip? The picture shows how. Just like when the Church group was here a few months ago, we loaded them first real cozy like till they all said “there is no more room!” Then I told our family to get on…18 more! It took 3-4 hours of bounce bounce bounceto get everyone home in the mountains and we dropped the Bethel Baptist kids off to stay with Pastor Santos for a couple of days…yes they road up the moutain on top of the cab.
Think about this next time your pew feels uncomfortable or it is not the right temp in the church....They all want to come back for another Dia de Mujer... Amen.
Unworthy Servant to a Worthy Saviour
