New trip to San Lorenzo to help Colombian refugees
Here's the storehouse where stuff was brought. Want some fresh meat?
Here's Edwin bringing in the sheaves...everybody sing now! These are peas.
Here's Frank talking to the Police. We had an opportunity to share with them as well. We were able to leave them with New Testaments and some gospel material. The police dept here often gets a bad wrap but they really helped us on this trip. Their slogan of 'mas que un amigo/more than a friend' turned out to be true.
Here's Frank doing a interview for a radio station. He was able to share the reason why we went, which is we were doing what Jesus would do if he were here, sharing with people in need.
The next 3 pictures were taken where the refugees are staying. We were able to visit 2 out of the 8 places where they are staying. We were also able to pass out New Testaments, gospel materials and materials for kids at these places and visit the people there. We were able to leave some more materials with Pastor German to give out at the other centers later on.
I had a pretty good visit with these guys, Joel and Alvaro, l-r. I ask you to pray for them and other refugees in the situation that they are in. Pray that God will bless them and provide for them. Most of all, pray that they will know the love of God (especially in understanding Scripture and gospel materials that were left behind.) We also ask you to pray for wisdom for the police and leaders who are handling this situation.
Here's a picture of our team minus me (Ben) and Pastor German, Frank, Edwin, Christine, Joselito, l-r. If you want to see more pics from our trip and read more info, check out teammate Frank's blog- http://godlovesquito.blogspot.com/
