A journal a day: Day 3

March 6, 2017

Ephesians 2:11-22

  1. 18: For THROUGH Him we both have access to the Father by one spirit.
  2. 21: IN Him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.

What happened today?

Our Enactus team went to the store today to find ingredients to make cookies to sell on Friday. It was so much fun and very different from home. After we got back from the store, some of the kids came and we got ready for lunch time. I find it interesting that we can communicate with the kids yet have no language in common. 

My favorite part of the day was teaching the youth about goals and dreams. Some wanted to be professional athletes, some wanted to be doctors, and some wanted to be psychologists. I hope that this week gives them the confidence to reach these dreams and achieve them. 

The last part of the day was walking some of the kids home. While I have made this trip home with them before, but it hit me again just how much we need to show them love. There was one girl that become a mom at a young age and seeing her carry her child home made my heart break for her. 

How did I see God?

Through the interaction with the bus driver: he spoke very little English and I speak very little Spanish, yet we had a meaningful conversation about the love of God. 

Hearing about the goals and dreams of the youth. 

Looking at the mountains and seeing His creation and how faithful God is and will always be.
