Wonderful church service!

We are on our way back from the first church service in the new church in Liquidambar!

As you can see from the picture, it was filled to capacity! When we got there, we found out we were responsible for worship! So, Tito put a GREAT sermon together in 30 minutes, Doris and Tanika led song service, Renee and the VBS team led the children in the VBS songs and Gino had scripture.

After Tito's sermon, we presented Ramiro (the Elder) and Maggie a team shirt for their help during the week. We always have a couple of extra shirts for some of the church members that help out. Ramiro then thanked us for what we did. It was very touching.

The Sabbath where we dedicate the church is always moving and a very tearful goodbye. We are sad to go, but will keep them in our hearts always.

We head back to the University for our final meal there and then head to the excursion (or the second week of work for 6 of us). We pray that Bobby, Glenn and Thelma are feeling better. They were not able to make it today because they are a little under the weather.
