Building the Kingdom

Yesterday was a beautiful and productive day. Once again, we had a medical/dental/optical clinic in a different part of town, the sports team spent time playing in a fútbol rápido tournament (which the boys won! AY AY AY!), the VBS teams began working with los niños at their churches, and the construction sites made some incredible progress on homes and repairs. We ended the day at La Gran Comisión for a youth service. Westmont students and our peers in Ensenada worshiped the Lord together in one place, and it was a powerful and incredible experience. The Holy Spirit truly filled the room as we danced and praised God. Along with singing, dancing, games, and a sermon, the service also included an interpretive performance by the Potter’s Clay dance team. Through dance our team showed the saving grace of Jesus Christ; their performance truly moved the hearts of those in the room. The Lord is continually doing so much more work than can be accounted for here, and we are thankful for what He continues to do through all of us. Below are some photos of a few  saw throughout the day. Until next time- ¡Dios le bendiga!

Yesterday, they cut the hair of 120 people!Meet Rodrigo. This picture was taken at the site that a team of Westmont students (including Doug, the student in the photo) are building a home for Rodrigo, his 4 brothers, and parents. God is good.
