Mission trip Day 14, lunch with our sponsor kids and families

It was surreal to be in our tutoring classroom with all of our sponsor kids and their families. We sang together, ate together and had great times of getting to know each other.
It felt to me to be real fellowship. To be able to sit beside, serve and love these kids and their family was an incredible blessing from God.
One of our sponsor kids name is Alberto. He was so full of joy today as he spent a couple of hours with his sponsor family. I know they were thrilled and proud of this precious young man!
On our way home we came by a stream. A lady was sitting by the stream and she seemed to be having so much fun. As I looked around I saw two other generations of ladies just dancing as they did laundry. What stood out to me was their joy even in the midst if spending a whole day washing clothes on a very hot day.
Life comes down to perspective, what some complain about others still find great joy in!
It has truly been a wonderful day bringing food, drink and joy to the lives of those who have become very dear to us!
God is good, what a privilege to love on others in his name!
