It’s finally summer time!!! After taking a couple of weeks off for Christmas break, our Castillo Fuerte (Mighty Fortress) Mercy Houses are back in operation, offering help to kids in need while also teaching them about the good news of Jesus Christ and the eternal life that we can have through faith in him. I was able to be there most of today to help our staff get things ready, to get kids signed up, and to make sure that the kids felt at home (for whatever reason they kept calling me “chistoso” and “gracioso” today…maybe because I was joking around with them the whole time…and those words both mean “funny” or “goofy”). And in addition to all of the fun today, we were able to expose the kids to God’s Word, which is, of course, the most important thing that we could ever do for them. It will be exciting to see how God will use his Word, as well as our relationships with these kids, to do some pretty amazing things. Prayers are always appreciated as the this work continues!
