Pics from the Kids Service this morning!

We just wanted to share with you some pictures from the kids service we have each Saturday morning! We had a great time loving on kids this morning. Jeremy picks us up and brings us home (since we don't have a car yet) with a bunch of women and kids from House of Hope, where Jeremy's mom, April, is the director. These women used to be prostitutes but now have a home at House of Hope where they've learned other ways to support themselves and many of them have a relationship with Christ now. Their kids are precious and just want to be loved. We've especially enjoyed spending time with Alyson, who is wearing the pink hello kitty boots in the bottom picture jumping rope.

Each morning we rent 3 buses to pick up kids in a few dangerous areas of town, especially El Mercado Oriental. Many of the kids are very poor and all of them LOVE coming to Camino de Vida (the name of our church). There are so many kids that want to come, but right now, we don't have the funding for it. We are being creative, and if you would join us in praying that God would provide financially so that we could have enough buses for all the kids who want to come each week, we would appreciate it! If you would like to be involved in making this happen, e-mail us at julier@onebyonemissions.com or chaser@onebyonemissions.com.

Also, a fun story...we learned the word for twins this week (gemelas) in class and it's kind of one of those words we thought we might never use, but this morning, there were two girls that looked the same and dressed the same and it was fun to be able to ask them if they were "gemelas". Small progressions in Spanish are small, yes, but exciting!
