Mission Creek is Here Again!

We always look forward to this repeat group!

All the group members, but two, have been here before so they knew their way around right from the start.

We're glad to have them back again! 
 Doris, Paul's mom listens in on the welcome and orientation meeting.
 
   Mission Creek drew large crowds from day one at the Vacation Bible Schools.
   
   Our bus was "a little heavy" for the wooden bridge to the village, so the guys rebuilt it.

   Belen is always an "eye opener"......the water level is up from the flooding of the Amazon River so the ground is covered with contaminated water. You have to wade, swim or canoe to the neighbor's house.

This is not "Fear  Factor" it is just one of our local friends eating a grub.....good protein and of course it tastes like chicken!
   
   
 This is Moses....the Lay Pastor of the little church that Mission Creek help to sponsor last year.

 The "Eye Glasses Ministry" is such a huge blessing.....Many, Many people can now read and function better as a result of this simple and inexpensive help. Reading glasses changed the lives of dozens of people.
