The team worked hard in the morning and finished all three projects at Promise Home. The rooms are painted, the ramp to the church is built, and the structure of the chicken coop is up and ready for a carpenter to start working on it. It’s always a delight to work at a place that is changing so many kids’ lives. Promise is literally a city on a hill!

Today the team worked hard all day in spite of the very high temperatures! We have been working on three different projects at Promise Home. (1) Chicken coop structure, which we will finish tomorrow, (2) building a new ramp for the Promise Home church, which we were able to finish today, and (3) painting two of the rooms where the orphans sleep, which we will finish tomorrow morning as well.

Hello church! We had an unexpected start to our trip. Our flight out of DFW was delayed by 9 hours, so we missed our connection to Honduras and had to spend the night in Miami. We finally left for San Pedro Sula on Sunday afternoon and made it here just in time for church at Promise Home.

Hola! After a week of ministry in Girona, the team got to spend a day off in Barcelona on Saturday! We got to see the breathtaking Sagrada Familia and then we went to Montserrat, where there is a monastery on top of a mountain. It was an incredible day.

Today, we visited the L’Arcada Christian camp. We had the blessing of meeting the founders David and Debbie Frank, American missionaries whom God called to Spain almost 40 years ago and founded the camp in 1991. We also met the care takers Vicky and Pedro.

Today holds mixed emotions as we finished our last day of VBS. We will miss the children and fun days filled sharing God's goodness, praise music, games and crafts. It was sad to say goodbye but our hearts are full with thankfulness for seeds planted, decisions made and sweet friendships formed.

Today was decision day at VBS. Today’s theme was when “life is sad, God is good.” Oscar and Cindy taught the lesson about how God sent Jesus to save us from a broken world and Raquel translated into Catalan so all the children were able to understand.

Today we had our second day of VBS and it was so encouraging to see the kids excited to come back. We had two new kids that were not there yesterday! The theme of today’s lesson was “when life is scary... God is good,” based on the plagues against Egypt.

Our flight was cancelled due to the hailstorm in the DFW area, but we were able to be rebooked through London just a few hours later and finally made it to Barcelona yesterday. Praise the Lord for that because the hailstorm took out 47 American Airlines planes at DFW, but the one going to London didn’t get damaged so we were able to fly to the UK and hop over to Spain!
