Little things

Lisa prepped for 50 kids and 12 government people to visit us at the Lighthouse Property. We had some of our Bible institute students come and be excellent examples of the fruit of the ministry and preach. They did great, though I got worried when I heard them begin preaching about Sodom and Gomorrah. Moreso when you understand the background of the kids present. But they pulled it off well and three boys came forward at the end. Amen. One of our students gave his testimony how he used to be a gang member, and how all of his old gang buddies are now dead. A lot of work went into this small group. Some of the officials drove from Tegu (2+hours) just to attend. We put out the bounce houses, Lisa made hot dogs, Sunday float cupcakes, and gave away Joy bags. (They looked real and watching some of the kids try to suck their cupcakes through the straw was my entertainment) Kids played on the playground and zip line. Lisa made up a photo studio and Julie took photos of those who wanted them. In all the big things done, it is often the little things that impress most. Like little Lester, sitting with a bunch of new strange kids...of his own accord stops and prays for his food before eating as the officials look on. Our kids wearing "staff" shirts and serving and caring for the kids the officials brought.  Another young boy comes up to me give me ahug while I am talking to the director and says I want to live with you. We have been attacked in so many ways since being here, but seen the LORD protects in even greater ways.
