Saturday Night Youth Event!
We had a blast last night at our once-a-month Youth Event. It was the first one we've had since we were here last in March. We had it located in Arrayanes to take advantage of the new sports court that some Short-Term Missions teams have built for us. We played speed soccer, and volleyball. There were nearly thirty students from Arrayanes, Cofradia and nearby Rosamorada. We divided them into four different teams. They played in the hot sun for a good hour and ended up exhausted. The winning team earned two bags of chips and some WWJD bracelettes. We also had a raffle of a little truck that someone in the states gave to us... the youth made around $45 dollars off of it. We also had other raffles or drawings and gave away a bunch of prizes. Jay put together a film of pictures and videos we had of the youth and everyone loved it! The Arrayanes Youth Band played worship and Pastor Horacio and I shared a little from the Bible. In the end, they were invited to come forward for prayer and a number of them responded with many different requests. It was a definate success and lots of fun!
