standing in awe

We just returned to Antigua from GC, where we worked with the Greene's and the Goodfellow's. We poured a concrete floor for a family of 8, who all live in the same 10x12 "house".  We have been serving in zone 3, the neighborhood at the dump.

 My words fall short of what it did to my heart, being there.  My hope is that pictures may tell the better story.

Once we got back to the hotel, this is what I read and wrote in my journal...

"Much dreaming and many words are meaningless.  Therefore stand in awe of God.  If you see the poor and oppressed in a district, and justice and rights denied, do not be surprised at such things."   Ecc. 5:7-8

I am "standing in awe" of who God is today... the community of friends the beauty of serving with our own kids (LOTS of them!)  :)
...His heart for the poor and oppressed
...the redemption and hope being poured out in the community by the Vida Joven (YL) leaders 

Standing in awe,

The dirt floor, "before" picture.
The kids LOVED mixing and pouring the concrete.  :)

The neighborhood where we spent the last two days.

Tyler was a HUGE hit with everyone.
