OBI 7/12 Our Last Day

Friday was our last day on the island and it was met with many mixed emotions.  It has been amazing to be here helping to minister to the needs of these sweet and loving people.  It has been heartbreaking to see the needs of the people and especially the children.  Contrast that with the incredible beauty of the beach, the sunsets and the clear blue ocean that attract the tourists who only think of themselves. We have been blessed to work with...

OBI 7/11 What can I say…

  Did I mention that today was a construction day? Yep, we worked construction today at Agape School, but Jared, Dani, and Reba got to be inside the school tutoring with the students today.  Yeah!! It was so fun to walk into that room and see them helping the kids with their words and reading. I think they really enjoyed themselves & the kids seemed to enjoy it too.  Our construction crew poured the top section of the final back wall...
