We started our day in typical fashion with devotions and an awesome breakfast by the ladies on the kitchen staff. After that we hopped on Daniel's bus and took our beautiful 30 minute ride to our worksite in Santa Marta. The views along the way are stunning where we see sugarcane and pineapple fields and lots of gorgeous mountains. It is sugarcane harvest season so a few times everyday we get slowed down by the tractors pulling loads of harvested sugarcane.
We continued working on the church building today and were once again blessed by a delicious lunch provided by the church ladies. Part of that included fresh from the field pineapple, tangerines and mangoes. The fruit here is the best.
Today also brought our first rainfall of the trip which is very rare for this time of year. The cooler temperatures and breezes that it brought were very much welcomed as the workdays can become very warm.
After dinner tonight we attended the local Methodist Church in San Isidro for a prayer/healing service which was very unique to all of us who come from our style of worship. Quite a few members of the church would go to the altar to be prayed over and it was a memory that will not soon be forgotten. After the service we headed back to Pops - the local ice cream store - for a sweet treat to end the day. We look forward to more adventures tomorrow.
