Finishing touches

Our last day at the orphanage putting on the finishing touches for Christ. The team served with joy and compassion which was evident by the our faces and the finished product. We finished by spray painting the iron gates that are in front of the orphanage and the steel letters that spell out Camino de Vida's Childrens Home in Spanish. We ran out of paint toward the end and Pastor Johnny and I looked at Jesus, a spanish man on the grounds in charge of maintenance, and asked him, 'Can we get more paint?' He replied, "No money". We said without hesitation can we give you money to buy some more. He said yes and was off to the paint store. I say this because the orphanage reminded me of Jesus' words in Matthew 13:44-46. For we did indeed find a treasure hidden in a field and with joy in our hearts we were ready to spend whatever was needed to finish the job.

Eating lunch that was prepared by the ladies in the Children's Home. It was great. You can see our new favorite drink, Inca Kola.
