This past Saturday a team of 13 from Bridgepoint Church in Houston, TX wrapped up seven incredible days here in Guatemala. It’s hard to put into words how much it means to the teachers, the children, and the Lemonade Team that there are those who are willing to sacrifice their time, finances, and resources and come from all different parts of the world to serve here. It’s a huge encouragement and is so refreshing to us!
There was one man on the team who is a full-time missionary in Indonesia with his wife and family serving in dentistry. He set up a dental clinic to extract rotten teeth for the children and the people in the community. I heard many people say that their mouths felt so much better already. He also taught the children at the school the proper way to brush their teeth and take care of their mouths.
All the men on the team spent the week helping with the renovations of the 2nd floor of “Escuelita Mandarina” and I know that was a big help for the construction workers to have some extra hands and encouragement.
The women on the team came incredibly prepared to do all sorts of activities with the students. They rotated classrooms doing painting, sharing Bible stories, playing games, and doing craft projects. Their energy and enthusiasm and love for these kids just really lit up their faces and their hearts. It was such a joy to watch and to be a part of.
Thank you to the 13 of you who were a part of the team, to those back home in TX who helped you get here, and to those who will continue to pray for the work here in La Limonada.
We can’t do it without people like you!!
