First morning in the bomberos! It’s fun to all be together late at night toking and in the mornings having fellowship with each other

At the morning clinic today as a team we worked on learning all of the kids’ names which changed the environment entirely. It became personal we were truly building relationships with the kids

After clinic we came back to the bomberos and while I worked on my Sportsmanship thought I was talking with Sajid and Orlando for awhile in Spanish. I am having fun practicing and working on my spanish. I was trying to learn one of the Spanish songs we sang at church so Sajid was helping me. Our conversation evolved into an acoustic worship session with Josh, Sajid, Orlando and I. It was awesome to be able to spend that time together and see Christ in each of us and worship in a small group together.

At the afternoon clinic, I again led the group of little ones. There are six 6 year olds and praise God they all understand english. Yesterday I taught them how to shoot so it was super cool to see them put it into practice today. We taught them today how to play Knock out or “Eliminato” which they absolutely loved. Their faces just lit up every time we said, “?Otra vez?” Sarais and I had so much fun with them! At the end one of them came up to me and said, “?Eliminato en basketball class mañana?!” With a smile from ear to ear. All of them called the clinic, “basketball class” it was adorable.

After clinic we headed back up to the north for the boys’ game. It was a great game, we could tell that the guys were pretty tired but they gave it everything they had to win the game. It was awesome to see their enthusiasm.

We had pulled pork sandwiches for dinner, we were able to eat them on the way home in order to get some extra sleep. Which was a great blessing! We continually pray for strength and energy and thank God for answering these prayers! -Leah
