This is my commandment: love each other just as I have loved you. No one has greater love than to give up one’s life for one’s friends. (John 15)
The work begins! The team of 26 broke up into three teams on three sites. My team works at Pastor Mario’s church, painting a roof that will go on top of the second floor addition to the building. That addition will be middle and high school space.
Another team worked at an area orphanage, engaging the children in games, reading and other activities. The final team works with Pastor Luis on a community center that looks to be a very large facility once complete!
We were reminded this morning at breakfast that we do all of this because Jesus first loved us. We paint, we play, and we move blocks because Jesus call us to love all and model that with action in our lives.
The work of love continues tomorrow!
