April 3, 2014
The Puerto Rico team consists of student-parent pairs, serving and learning together. Here are some updates from team historian Johnna Bain. She has posted many great pictures here.
God is moving in mighty ways through our students and parents here in Puerto Rico! We are falling in love with the kids and people of this church and city. Check out the updates on our trip journal webpage! Pictures included! View the updates below: http://www.prayingpelicanmissions.org/journals?tripid=3017
The Puerto Rico Team (7th/8th grade students and parents) have completed two days at a local Methodist church and Christian school. Each day, designated groups have planned a fun day for over 100 students for most of their school day, while providing necessary maintenance and improvements to the school and church buildings and grounds. The energy and smiles abound with God’s grace and glory!
Today’s VBS lead team began the day with music, led by Lauren Kelly and Mary Louise Bain, followed by a skit with several of the school children participating. Then the school children surprised everyone with music of their own! It was completely amazing and beautiful! After chapel, everyone headed out for games and crafts. A new game involving balloons was introduced, and it was quite the hit! After VBS, the mission team broke out into task groups and worked on numerous jobs, including landscaping, painting, electrical projects, and creating a hopscotch court. To honor the mission team, the Pastor cooked hamburgers and hotdogs and served them up with homemade shakes! The evening concluded with members coming by to fellowship with the team while the church’s music volunteers performed in the background. Truly a remarkable and memorable day!
