Todays blog is going to be on a personal level. Here are some of the thoughts from a number of group members:

"Today at both Santa Rosa and San Jose we saw the growth of God's Kingdom. At Santa Rosa the number of children doubled year over year and so did their joy. At San Jose the wonderful work of the loal church is evident in the children's praise and worship as well as in the desire and ability to memorize bible verses. In fact, San Jose, a Hatian migrant village, in the past seemed so dark and empty. It was shiny and bright in Christ! The children reminded me of last year's memory verse and competed to show me they remembered it. Praise the Lord!" - Magda Y. 

"God ALWAYS provides even the littlest of needs" - Julia R.

"I am a member of a team, I defer to the team, I sacrifice for the team, because it is the team not the individual who is the champion" - Eveny P.

"No matter the place, no matter the time, the Lord is watching, he listens, and he answers" -Cailyn F. 

"A seed was planted on the education system, I pray that it will take root and change structure" - Nathalie W.

"What hit me the most was the poverty, it was very sad to see the conditions of the children. The children and women seemed very sick but even in terrible circumstances, in all of that, the children were having so much fun, they were so excited to be held by random strangers. They fell asleep in our arm, they felt safe." -Ashley N.
