Gran Dios

So, if you know me at all, you know I love teaching children. One of my favorite things I was able to do last week is teach the children of Barahona about our Big God. The theme of our week was Gran Dios (Big God). We all had a blast lovin on the sweet kiddos. I am so thankful for the awesome translators we had. We would have been completely lost without them. The picture above is of me with one of my favorite translators, Wany and her sweet sisters.
There were lots of kids with tons of energy, so I'm glad I had an awesome team to work with.
When the week started we thought we would be working with the kids once during the afternoon, but we ended up doing it twice. We met first in the park and then went to apartment complex and did it again. It was great!
These pictures show two of the little boys who I just loved. They reminded me of my 3 year old boy at home who I missed so much. They were mischievous and full of life, just like my Jax.
I was one of the Bible application teachers last week.

I was so nervous about communicating with the kids since I don't remember much from high school Spanish class, but with Wany by my side, things went really well.
These sweet children made quite an impression on me.
There were
so many
sweet faces
that I don't ever
to forget!!!
