And for most of us missionaries it means that it is anything but a "break"!
All last week and all this week Lonnie has been working in the "Gran Ciudad de Porvenir" with Ventana Ministries and the groups that have been coming down to work.
We have been working with a group of around 90 high schoolers on fire for the Lord. We broke into smaller teams and we were assigned small projects around town. Our project was a test of facing our fear of heights. We are replacing a broken down fence on top of a 12' high soccer back stop. It is a simple project that would only take a day or two but with the height issues it has taken us the whole 2 weeks.
Praises to the Lord nobody has seriously fallen from the ladders or scaffolding yet. We still have two more days of work until completely finished please keep us in prayer. When I agreed to help my pride would not let me confess that I am petrified of heights. But praise God He has been my strength and courage through this project! God is Good!
