Fin­ish­ing Strong on June 26!

130 kids in Bible camp, men’s Bible study goes longer than the women’s, and men play game “wide and nar­row path”. No run­ning water forces team to cre­atively shower with buck­ets of well water. Lynn enjoyed a 2 1/​2 inch bed bug, and every­one is healthy. Get­ting ready for the longest day with a church ser­vice after the Bible stud­ies. Pray that our mime blesses the Santa Marian’s. blogger-image--533352912

1st Day of Camp!

Today was the first day of Bible camp. A lot of prepa­ra­tions this morn­ing as the team kicked the week off. Today’s les­son was on Elija and the prophets of Baal. We had about 75 kids at camp today which began a bit late due to the rain. The skies opened up about an hour before camp was to begin, but praise God the rain stopped in time for camp and our after­noon activ­i­ties. After Bible camp we had an hour break before the men’s and women’s Bible studies.

The team is all doing well, and we are all con­tin­u­ing to build rela­tion­ships with the peo­ple in Santa Maria. We are con­stantly reminded of the chal­lenges life brings to the peo­ple in this com­mu­nity. It reminds us of how blessed we truly are. Thanks for your con­tin­ued prayers. Chris Freisheim.
