Finishing Off the Week

Wanders Family HANDS Team:

 

After a beautiful, relaxing Christmas Day, we began Boxing Day morning at 8 o'clock. We spent the day laying and cleaning tiles, mixing glue (which was a concrete mix) and painting. Our day of work finished around 4, and Dad drove us to the pastor's residence above the church for dinner, which was an amazing meal of tortillas.

 

We returned to our guest house around eight, and ended our day with a family game of spoons :)

 

This morning we left at eight again, and we were back at the glue mixing, cleaning and painting as soon as we arrived to the work site. We worked away at the floors until we ran out of glue mix, yet the children who showed up to the work site began a game of soccer with us in the meantime.

 

Finishing the work day with the final paint touches to the school's exterior, we headed to the hotel covered in paint spots and sunscreen. A few relaxed hours followed, until supper at six, which, to our excitement, was spaghetti!!

 

And so, as we look forward to worship with our brothers and sisters in Belize tomorrow, we also look back and are full of gratitude. Gratitude for Pastor Juan, his wife Maria and her mother, and Ismael and his wife Patricia. Each one of them has devoted countless hours to ensure our health and comfort, and their kindness is invaluable to our trip. They have truly lived out Paul's word's to "Share with the Lord's people who are in need. Practice hospitality." (Romans 12:13)
