More than words

I was reflecting today on our full day of work at the construction site, playing with the children, and listening to a special speaker from the Dominican Republic who spoke to us of his work on HIV AIDS through an interpreter.  Although we are in a country where the culture and language are unfamiliar to most of us, we seem to be adapting well!  The people here have been very welcoming and loving.  Sometimes we still get lost in the conversation due to our lack of language proficiency.  But I believe and feel that the people we have met here have accepted us as an extension of their own families.

This afternoon we were accompanied to the indoor soccer field by a mission group from Corpus Christi, Texas.  This experience was very rewarding for me because we were able to share God’s word with people whom we may never get the chance to see again.  Today, “we seized the opportunity and moment” to share in God’s love and unity.  For this, I know that God is truly pleased!
