Redemption Village – Construction projects done

The 2 basketball backboards were replaced.  You can see they are already enjoying this area once again.








The swing seats were replaced and the area underneath was filled in.

This whole play/open area was cleaned and the grass mowed.




The houses in the square of the church and school area were painted and the sidewalks, which were in bad condition were replaced.

Some of the kids enjoyed a ride on the burro.  Two additional windows were installed in the school building (the one with the writing).  This will help with better ventilation in the building.  Also, this building is used for the feeding program 3 days a week at present. The sidewalk is an additional one that goes from the church to the school building.

Above is most of the team on Thursday afternoon after all the construction was done.  I just can’t seem to get everyone in a large group photo.  They also managed to repaint the church.

Activities from Redemption Village – July 22-27, 2012

Finally, I’m taking time to post more pictures from our last team, Grace Community Church from Maryland, at Redemption Village during the week of July 22-27.

Let’s start with Sunday morning service at Redemption Church.

Pictured here is Glenn giving his testimony.  Debbie also gave her testimony, but I don’t have a picture.




The group shared several songs in Spanish.



Miriam and Charis sang a special song.





Andy shared The Word.




The group held VBS in the mornings, Mon.-Fri. for the kids while the construction crew were working on several projects.

Here is Stacy helping some of the children with their craft activity.  Stacy also presented the Bible lesson each day.



Greg is helping his assigned group.  He and his brother, Glenn had to leave a day early because Glenn was going to be a counselor at summer camp.  Both were a blessing to the kids in Redemption Village and to the entire team.

Here is Carol and Debbie (on the back row) working with their group of kids.




In the afternoon, the team ladys held a Bible study for the ladys of The Redemption Church.



Barb and Janea explaining the lady’s craft activity for the day.

They made a boutique for themselves of flowers of their chose.



They really seemed to enjoy this.

They especially liked the time that our team ladys spent with them in the Word and in prayer.



On Friday morning, some of the team went door to door witnessing in the Playa Laguna area.   In the afternoon, some of the team went to Paradise Village and did a children’s outreach.

Will try to post the construction pictures tomorrow.
