We arrived safely to Ponce yesterday afternoon and ate a wonderful dinner prepared by church members of Obispo Corson. This morning, we worshipped together with Obispo Corson and led them in worship! Please keep us in your prayers as we continue to serve!

We are still working hard at our different sites. This group has been successfully repainting Obispo Corson’s fence, and it looks fantastic! We have also had the opportunity to have conservations and prayer with community members. God is good!

Today we went back to Comunidad el Sol and heard testimonies from two of the residents. It was very encouraging to listen to how God is working in and through them. We also ministered to the kids and some adult residents with a skit and games. God is moving!

Yesterday, we completed our work projects! We also shared the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection with the kids at Comunidad el Sol. We are so thankful for the opportunity to serve.
