Team White: Casie, Sarah, Alicia, Kara, Christy, Nicole, Chelsea W
Today Team Blanca spent the morning playing with about twenty 4 and 5 year olds at Genesis church. The church doubled as a school, which has 42 children enrolled - down from last year's 65 students as a result of insufficient funding and resources. The cost of education at Genesis church is only $5 a month per student, but only 1/3 of the families can accord to pay, so the school literally relies on God to make ends meet. They trust in God so unfailingly: the volunteer lunch lady said that the love of God is her pay. We have so much to learn from the way these people rely fully on God.
After a shy start, the children warmed up to us pretty quickly; we played at a near-by park, sang songs, and laughed a lot. Even though most of us didn't speak mucho espagnol, we experienced first-hand that simply loving people is not at all bound by language.
