It's been a blessed travel day and we sit on the eve of our first Operation Christmas Child shoe box distributions tomorrow. Medellin (pronounced Mega-gene by the locals) looks beautiful and this hotel is astounding.
We just came from our introductory meeting. What a joy it was to meet ten members from the Regional Leadership Team in the area as they all shared greetings and comments with us through an interpreter. Some of them are pictured here.
One said, "Sometimes we feel alone but these trips (when OCC volunteers come) help us feel we are not alone."
A young girl on the team shared, "I know that God is going to multiply in a wonderful way what you have given in this life and in your family and generation."
Another noted, "For many years you've been making boxes but now you can be a witness. This weekend you can share in that."
And one shared, "This is a time God has given us to see the Kingdom of God come to Colombia."
Time to set my alarm and prayerfully ease into sleep, because tomorrow it begins.
