Asunción, the first time is tops
Even though the heavy auto exhaust caused some allergies and illnesses to flare up, our time in Asunción was fantastic. The team we worked with here is fantastic and it’s sad to be leaving so soon.
I knew from the moment I saw Enoch’s (one of the missionaries) smiling face that we would be welcomed by such warm people. We worked with several of the team, but primarily with Enoch and Chris Fry. The highest compliment we received at the end of our time was that we were so ‘low maintenance.’ That means quite a lot coming from a team that will be receiving four, I believe, groups in the next month. The next group comes the day after we leave.
We worked with three orphanages in the city. We painted a wall at one and played with the children at all three. We put on a two-day VBS, that the kids loved. We passed out flyers and spoke (it’s so good to be able to communicate this time around) with university students and parents at universities and in downtown to promote English classes and the VBS.
Honestly we stayed busy and always had something to do. It was a pleasure working with the team and I look forward to continue building the relationship in the future.
Cheap food and great people. Who could ask for more?
Pictures to come soon.
