Yesterday, we were well rested and ready to GO. The picture above, is of our group meeting to prepare and pray. The day's activities included, preparing meals, games and activities, and communicating with YOU.
The highlight of our day was the answered prayer for shared hospitality. Sharing our meals with the Brazles, the LST team from Harding, and members of the Antwerp church was so encouraging.
We began with some "get-to-know-you" games at the church building, and then took our games to a local park. We were so surprised at how easy it was to include local kids who were at the park in our games. We had a blast playing with them and hope that we will see them again today!
Our day ended with Dutch lessons, so that we can be perceived as polite Americans. Our attempts at saying "please" (alstubieft) and "thank you" (dank u) in Dutch have been received with kind smiles and patience.
We cannot wait to share what God does today as we return to the neighborhood to continue building on the relationships that began yesterday. Please pray today for the gifts of togetherness and thankfulness.
