Wednesday, November 14, our second day with two distributions. Our first distribution was at a Matagalpa neighborhood called Sabadel which consisted of many plastic, sheet metal and wood homes. These homes were in a steep ravine area. The kids were anxiously waiting our arrival with their faces painted and in their best clothes. Their happiness and love were evident. We were blessed by a 'Worship Dance’ performed by 4 “niñas” ranging from 6-14 yrs. old. We then had the opportunity to Worship with them and they were lively and full of praise and love for GOD. Before the ‘PAK’ distribution we broke into two groups, niños y niñas to break open ‘piñatas’. The kid's enthusiasm, happiness and joy made us ALL feel like kids again!

Our first distribution took place in Mateare. This was a special outreach because none of these kids have ever been to church. The Pastor took the time to seek out these kids because of the extreme need. So, not only did we get the opportunity to bring hope with the school paks, we got to be the bridge between them and the local church. We were asked to worship at the church and eventually the kids joined in. When the Pastor wanted to pray for the team, we felt blessed because most of the children were praying with their hands up in the air. Some of the parents approached the local Pastor to thank them and he then asked us to pray for the families. We could DEFINITELY see God’s hand at work in the way He connected all three parts: the church, the team & the families.
