Domingo 6.2

Today, we had breakfast with OP before they went back home. I could tell they had an eventful week because it was hard for them to go. They were trying to tie up lot of loose ends and ensure items they left behind had proper homes. I am happy to know them and that they are excited about God is using them.

We attended service in Lomas Diamantes with the Casa Kids. In the past I felt we were "looking in on the service". This time it seemed like we were part of the congregation. We worshipped as brothers and sisters of one body. It was wonderful to worship with Timoteo. His message was moving, we had lunch at the church and there was a baptism at the end of service.

During service, Timoteo announce that the funds will go toward building a building for the children of the congregation to worship away from their parents. Oddly enough, Josue (our resident translator) incorrectly interpreted this as "funds will be sent to the Dominican Republic." This was corrected, but not before giving Josue an extremely difficult time. It was also nice to have the Casa Kids with us so they could see us worship with them.

After dropping the Casa kids off, the group had downtime while Terri and I looked at the scope of work to be done at Casa. We also set up areas for Donna and Dennis to do crafts tomorrow morning.

During devotion we were joined by 18 people from a group that supports a few kids at Casa. I gave the devotion message, speaking from John 3:16. After devotion I missed the chance to fellowship with the group because Alan and I were talking. We talked about the history of the Church of Christ and why some things are considered conservative, liberal and authoritative. I am learning a lot.

For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness." - 1 Timothy 4:4-7
