Day 4: Wednesday

Posted: August 2, 2012 by abestratton in 2012 Mission Trip

A different day today. We slept in a little and then went to the flea market nearby. It was a unique experience – a sensory assault of sounds, sights, and smells. I’ll have to say the experience was overwhelming for me; I know some people thrive on atmospheres like that, and some of our teens did. They returned with some interesting souvenirs – parents be warned. =)
In the afternoon we continued our VBS and some work out at the new school property.
After supper we enjoyed Wednesday evening fellowship, singing, and testifying with the Redeemer Bible Church family. It was an encouraging time to hear what God is doing in our brothers and sisters in a very different place. We also heard a “rescue story” from Rachel Curling (Juan’s wife), and God used her transparency as she shared about her own struggles and God’s faithful grace.
The final part of the evening was going out for Raspas – Texan sno cones. They have some incredible flavors, and the teens needed a fun, emotional outlet. Went to bed early in preparation for a big work day on Thursday.
