The group got a chance today to sit in on a Belizean church service. I think they were a good encouragement to our new pastor, Kenny Welch, as they were able to help out with the music. Brian and Zach are posting with more info:
Hey guys this is Brian and Zach here to give you your day six update. We got up this morning and had pancakes and plantains for breakfast. Then we caught the boat to the village for Sunday School and Church. Some of our team members lead the children in the VBS songs at the beginning of Sunday School and also lead in worship songs for the adults. It is great to see the village come together for worship. Kenny the local pastor gave a message from the gospel of John. After the service we went to Nacho’s where Miss Alice prepared a wonderful Sunday dinner. We ate outside picnic style. After dinner we returned to the mission base, some of the students went swimming. While they were swimming Zach and Caleb learned a lesson in Marine Biology. Mainly focusing on the pain that a jellyfish can cause when you try to swim in the same place that they are trying to swim. Parents do not fear, our group is really getting close. The word is that urine is a remedy for the sting of a jelly fish. Caleb in an act of brotherly love shared some body fluids with Zach to help ease his pain. Shai he will be okay. Brandon a local craftsman came to the base with us to show us how to make drums and jewelry. We spent the rest of the afternoon just hanging out. Pray for us tomorrow as we go back into the village and finish up our VBS. Also in the morning the guys will be going to play “football” with the guys in the village. We would really like to share Christ with them, please pray that we are wise in our approach and have a good chance to share the gospel with these men.
