We have been so thankful to have him here serving with us and his construction experience has been very valuable as well. For us (Roberto and Jill/Foundation) it has been a great experience of what it might be like to have an intern someday or what it might feel like to have someone else serving down here with us.
Thunder has enjoyed getting to know and see the vision that God has here for us, all while learning about the culture, the language, trying new foods, meeting new people, and serving OUR Father. He took a HUGE step of faith deciding to come down and serve; he didn't know us, we don't have a lot of money to work with, he raised most of his own funds, he's young...but God provided!
Here are a few pictures of the bunk beds and some other highlights of his trip!
Going the EXTRA MILE
This was the perfect example of a child NEEDING a SAFE HAVEN! Had CASA RESCATE (THE RESCUE HOME) been open, we would have taken her in!
Silvana has continued to follow the child and her grandfather and approached Roberto about helping them with their living quarters. Thunder and Roberto went out to the community to take a look to see what they could do. Thunder was very touched and got in contact with some friends back home and was able to get $300 donated toward materials to fix up the house and make it a bit more secure for them.
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...
