Today, Saturday, began with a walk up the hill to the Agape School where we were once again working construction.  This team is such hard workers and put forth 100% all the time.  It is hard work, but they don’t complain, they just stick to it!  They are awesome! (the Filipinos think so too)
Today a group of us moved a huge pile of rock while the rest mixed concrete and poured a footer for the next part of the wall we have been working on.  Then we all worked together to bucket all the sand and the rock up to the second floor where it will be used for the concrete that will be poured on Monday.  After three hours, it is time to be done!
Jerry, one of our Filipino friends, shared with me that last month he was very sick, but still needed to coordinate the construction at both sites.  He told me how he was totally dependent on the strength of the Lord to get him through. “The Lord’s strength is just what I need, and He gives me enough.”  He is such an encouragement and his smile is priceless.
After lunch we had  some free time until we met for our team time of sharing from the Word and prayer.  Then we planned for the feeding tonight.
It was about a 10-minute walk to our site and when we arrived the children were all excited to see us.  We enjoyed some song time with them and did our program.  Karli shared John 3:16 with them and what it means and it was fun to see that many of the children already knew this verse by heart.  We passed out coloring pictures and they just loved coloring! We played a few games and bandaged a few sores, served them their meal and then we had to go.
It is always so hard to say goodbye, they just seem to enjoy the attention so much.
Another amazing sunset greeted us as we came back to our rooms.  Thanks, God for another awesome day!!  “praises to Jesus” as the Filipino children say.
