~As I posted last time we got to the city of Medellin Tuesday afternoon. On Wednesday we went as a family to a neat Science museum. Here's the view from where we ate our lunch. =) ~
Medellin is a fun mixture of tropics and mountains.
Often throughout the city you will find these neat "Fountains of water." They are just slits in the ground and the water under the ground is on a timer. Quite often water will shoot out of one slit and land in another. If you aren't careful and are standing near one of the slits you could get soaked. They create a lot of FUN for kids to play in and get wet.
Here's Elijah (the last little boy in the picture to your right) getting SoAkEd! He L.O.V.E.D. this fountain! =D~
Dear Jesus please help us all to be faithful to show YOUR LOVE to those around us! (For getting to Heaven is really all that Matters in this life!)~
I guess his motto would be...if you can't get to the store...the store can COME to you! =)~
Thursday night was their mid-week service. Phillip led the singing, and Bro. Alberto preached. God gave us a good service with a good attendance.~
Didn't have a washer. I told her that I could wash our clothes by hand. But when she saw the amount of clothes I needed to wash, she was afraid that if we tried to hand wash them, they wouldn't dry in enough time for us to pack them up to leave to go to Cartagana the next day. (For a washer can WRING the water out lots better than we can.) So, the lady where we had the house service offered to loan me her washer and I did a couple loads.
Sis. Alba told me that she REALLY needs a washer. For as she washes clothes for her family of 5, her arms ACHE. We'd love to buy her a washer, but with all the Colombian residency expenses for our family, the classes coming up in July, and our move to Argentina coming up, we aren't able to.
Will you please Join me in PRAYING that God will supply a washer for Sis. Alba in His time?
Nothing is impossible with God! ~

They both are amazing seamstresses.~
Stay tuned... Part 2 of Medellin coming up with lots more pics. =)~
