The Latest in Bocachica

Here´s an overview of what has been going on in Bocachica the last few weeks...not necessarily in this order:


A last-minute contact brought a basketball team from the USA to do a one-day workshop with the kids in Bocachica.

For those of you who didn´t know, our new staffer, Guillermo (from Brazil/Chile) is a Physical Therapist and God is using his profession to help the people in Bocachica. What an incredible blessing it is for the them to have this opportunity right on thier door-step!

Yolanda is back doing her decorating workshops with the local ladies...this time they are making butterflies.

We had a DTS outreach team from the YWAM base in Lausanne, Switzerland with us this month. There were 11 of them but none of them were Swiss...we had 1 Brit and 10 Koreans. They did all kinds of activities with the kids, youth and elderly.

Last month was the beginning of the second semester of the local school and our staff girls got together school supply packets to hand out to the kids in our sponsorship program.

Every Thursday night during our cell group meeting Pili and Josefina take the kids out for an age appropriate activity while the youth and adults stay to hear the teaching. They usually really have their hands full but they are very gifted to work with kids and it´s a blessing to have them!

Last week we took down all the scaffoldings and supports (I don´t know the correct terms in English so I hope you know what I am talking about) from building the concrete roof on the second wing of the clinic.

Samy and Guillermo built a few new sidewalks in the mission, just in time for the rainy season when things get muddy and yucky!

There are many days lately I have been thinking about the ship and missions in general. It's been a long time.
