Today we visited another place involved in the Inca Link ministry. Our group from Bramalea Alliance Church had created a couple of performances and interactive lessons alongside Thunder Bay’s group. It was awesome! When we came in, we heard about the story of Isaac and Abraham told by one of the children that was attending the ministry. After which, we played a game of over under - minus the over part, as a relay race. It was really fun and the kids loved it.
Next, Thunder bay presented their songs and the kids loved following along and singing with them. Then, our church presented the story of Joshua and the battle of Jericho, I got to translate! After that, we did a play about showing how it was like in the beginning, the harmony and beauty of God and His creation and how we made the choice to disobey God and how He loved us so much that He decided to send his son Jesus into the world to take our sin so that we can live because of His death and resurrection. After this, Dan explained the story. I got to help translate it and we got the kids to participate. It was really a cool thing to see how God is so, so present in Peru and how He is working in the lives of these kids. The last thing that I did was a card trick explaining the same concept of God’s amazing love for us, it was a great day.
Through the week, I have been learning to put more and more trust into what God can do for me. The mountains surrounding this place have taught me how God’s love is greater than my fear. As I place my faith in Him, his love stands like a giant mountain that overshadows the smaller mountain of my fear and anxiety. He has been faithful and I give Him thanks for helping me to step out of my comfort zone and be a light for Him.
My prayer is that He would continue to help me with this as I return home. I know that I can do all things THROUGH Christ who strengthens me!
