Day 6 – Gentleness

Today was our last day of working on the island as tomorrow is our God & nature day.  Today after breakfast we continued painting the fence at the feeding center.  We painted until about 12:40, cleaned up our painting supplies then had lunch.  After lunch Raoul & Karen took us to several villages where we had worked or visited in the past.  It was nice to see some areas that had improved from last year.  We went to areas that are impoverished & most people live in shacks.  we gave the kids foam crosses & stickers & they decorated their crosses with the stickers.  when we were leaving one of the villages one of the little boys ran after our bus.  Raoul & Karen talked to some of the moms about school supplies for the kids & got the ages of the children so they can bring them backpacks filled with the age appropriate supplies.  Karen is also going to take them new flip flops at the same time (we actually brought 56 adult flip flops and 116 youth).  We got back to the hotel around 3:15 and got changed & ready to catch the 4:00 ferry to Port Lucaya to do a little shopping, have some ice cream & just to see all the various vendors and their wares.

we took the 6:10 ferry back to our hotel & picked up our dinner & ate over by the pool/beach.  After dinner we had devotions & during prayer time we broke into our prayer teams to pray.

i have many pictures of your kids with the kids in the villages.  They all had a great time!

i just saw on the weather channel that there is a 60% chance of showers tomorrow…and they are going to be thunder storms.  If that’s the case our God & nature day will look different than we think.

please keep us in prayer for travel mercies as we travel home in two days.  We can’t believe how quickly the week has gone by!
