The girls are making puppets out of their barf bags.  And left them sticking out for the next passengers. It was quite funny.

The ghetto—words can’t even describe it.  God is doing some beautiful things there.

This is Ashley, our community outreach leader with her godson. God is using her mightily. She lives in the ghetto with the people she serves.

The house below is covered with bullet holes.  Gang violence was very prevalent at one time. God is moving here and people’s hearts are changing.

Below are some of the families we met with. We only took pics when appropriate.
It was so humbling. We hugged and kissed, gave food, heard their stories (amazing!) and prayed over the people.

Volcanic ash that is everywhere. It is all in our heads like sand from the beach.

We are so far having a great time and are with a great team!  I am so humbled and blessed by the families stories.  To have someone cry with tears of thankfulness when you hand them food---brings about a flood of emotions.
The people are beautiful and praise God for all the work being done by willing servants.
