Walk humbly with your God
Some of the Casa de Fe kids after church!
This morning I was in charge of helping get all of the kids to church. Before
heading out the door I called to have them meet us and when they arrived they
were all there, plus an extra kid. We got a new boy the other day, well he's
actually not so new since he has been at Casa de Fe before, but I just got to
meet him. We all made it to church and joined everybody else from Casa at the
front of the church to the right, we sit in the same spot every week! I got to
sit next to Caila, Evelyn, and Diana. Caila accidentally
The Freeman's and I!
spilt my coffee, but it didn't spill on anybody and it is easier to clean up on a tile floor. It was really hot in church until they turned on the fans, but once they did it was
just fine. I hung outside the church until the Bible classes were done, so I got to hang out with Jeff and Stephanie. When they were all loaded up to go back to
Casa de Fe I headed back home to the Martin's. It was my first time ever really
being upstairs when it was nice and sunny outside, I could definitely feel it,
because I felt like I was sitting in a sauna when I was Skyping my family to
wish my dad a Happy Fathers Day! I got to go to lunch at Vista Hermosa with the
Freeman's, the Hayes family, and the team that is here. It is a yummy restaurant
and a great group of people to eat with! After we were all done eating I headed
home and hung out around the house for a while before heading up to Casa de Fe.
I went up to spend time with the kids and hold the babies, then I hopped in the
truck for ultimate frisbee. It
Ronal just being cute!
was an awesome day at the sporting complex, because we had our big crew back at the field! Seriously, there were a ton of Ecuadorians and other missionaries, we had a big game of great game going! After a couple hours of intense playing we loaded up the truck and I rode back
all the way to Casa with the kids and got to say goodnight to everybody. It was
fun seeing them all settle down before supper and heading to bed. I helped Jeff
drop off water jugs at Patti Sue's and ended up staying for a while to visit.
She made a delicious pineapple upside down cake, and Heidi made a chicken broth
based soup with curry, paprika, cinnamon, sweet potato, chickpeas, spinach, and
a bunch of other veggies. Of course the soup was better with a little bit of
popcorn! I was so glad to visit, but had to leave all too soon to go over to
prayer, but I love prayer nights so it was a great place to go. Prayer was at
the Freeman's tonight, so I had to walk briskly over there since I was enjoying
my time with Patti Sue, Heidi, and the girls and lost
track of time! Micah 6:8, "He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." I was pretty emotional at prayer. I was grateful beyond words for the prayer and encouragement that I received and thank the Lord for the support from everybody here. As I sat there I was thinking about how much I miss the kids already. I have been blessed to see and spend time with them every day, but I know in a couple days that will not be my reality. God is faithful in all situations and I know He is working in
beautiful ways. The stars were beautiful on the walk home, it is always a treat
to see the stars here at night!
