Yesterday, we saw the product of out work in the office take birth. This picture is Rick enjoying his first day working at the office. Although there is still some fine tuning to do, we can now use the front area of the building for Rick’s new office. The ceiling fans, phone and internet were installed a few days ago and the wiring was done for the generator when needed, which is quite frequent as the area is without power each day for hours.
He met with some Pastor’s and had a Skype meeting with another.
This picture is of Rick, Pastor Felix and Pastor Nickolas at the end of their meeting. Pastor Felix is pastoring the people at the Playa Laguna Church. I just met Pastor Nickolas and just know that he has a church and helps Rick at times.
To the left is Homero in the sitting area of the office. What a blessing he has been as he worked right along side of us almost everyday. His wife, Esther, made the flower arrangement for our opening. They live just up the street. Homero also helps as a driver when we have teams. So starting tomorrow he will be busy as our first team arrives since I arrived to help the Sucher’s.
Of course, Rick and I had to have a picture to celebrate this day and the progress we have made that will help him for months to come. May God be glorified with the work done for His kingdom in this place.
My work space is on the left side of the office. You can see that I did not bring my computer for this day’s work. Actually, I arrived with others to pick up Rick and to go meet with a couple of people to see what they are doing, so we could decide if we wanted to help them in ministry. When we returned, we were able to empty about 5 more boxes in the storage area and to discuss the upcoming team needs. We made a list of needed materials for the team work beginning on Monday, so we could stop and purchase them at the lumber and paint store on the way home. After several stops, then a meeting at Playa Laguna and picking up Rick’s van from the shop, I finally arrived back to my apartment around 7:30 p.m. Although I was tired, it was a great day! It was a day the Lord made and we rejoiced in it.
