Tom and Mike helped head up different projects today while Lisa and Nate W. worked on getting needed supplies for the projects. Through all of our work this week, we are learning to build "toothpick houses" (an analogy from our poverty lesson yesterday, to be explained when we hold our report at Calvary in late July).
After construction, we had the opportunity to visit the gardens behind the HFIC facility. Joel, who is in charge, gave us a history of American food production. Three days a week, kids from the camp come and help him tend the garden. The garden contains flowers, vegetables, and herbs, as well as chickens and goats. Some of the kids in the community also come every Saturday and they cook bean soup to provide to the local neighborhood.

It has been wonderful to see how God plans things perfectly and today's BBC was no exception. Tom, who grew up in Guatemala, had the opportunity to talk to the parents of some of the kids:

Please pray for the kids and that they will return tomorrow, and that their parents will come with them. BBC today was a good opportunity to minister to not only the kids, but the parents as well. Please also pray for safety and patience for the team as we minister through construction and BBC.
