Mondays and Tuesdays at Agua Viva are work days for the mission teams. I've been helping the team with building a road. It's hard work but very rewarding as we can see things coming together and getting accomplished. The kids at Agua Viva are so full of life. They love to be loved (who doesn't?) but they also just love you back. I have been sitting with a group of boys all between the ages of 7-9 and they always save me a seat during meals. They are constantly playing tricks on me... poking me... tapping me on the shoulder... al those sorts of things. Some are even practicing their english with me. (I certainly appreciate it)
Jessie has been spending a lot of time with the 4 kids that are too young to go to school during the day. There are 3 girls (twin sisters) and 1 little boy. They are full of energy and I can hear them yelling, "Jessa" in all morning long. She is so good at loving on them and giving attention to all of them at the same time.
Yesterday afternoon I picked up one of the twins to play with her but instead of playing she wrapped her arms around my neck, laid her head on my shoulder, and was asleep within a minute. It was a precious moment for me.
Keep us in your prayers! We miss everybody!
