Mexico Day 3 – Student Perspectives

Today we was the first day we interacted with the kids.  We had about 100 kids for VBS and 20 of them stayed for Soccer in the hottest part of the day.  It was a scorcher.  Here are some pics and story’s from students.

Today we interacted with the children of Acuna for the first time. I’ve never seen so many happy people, that don’t have much more than the clothes on their back. Today i sat down to a little kid and helped tie his shoe, he than turned around and the kid next to him untied them, I made sure to make the next knots more complicated as they laughed and enjoyed this situation just like any kid back home. Later in the day i played soccer with a boy not much younger than me and he was very good, but i made sure to give him a challenge and by the end of the day we were laughing and throwing up high fives. During the bus ride home i started thinking about what happened, are we really any different from these people? I am really looking forward to the rest of the week and learning more about everyone in Acuna. Keep us in your prayers  –Camden

Today we got to go out and do some interacting with the kids. It was one of the most fun things i have ever done. We all had so much fun. We got there and all the kids just started giving hugs and high fives. I have realized how much we are doing for them. They were all so nice and fun. I have also realized how different and how much better we have it. I am so happy that I am able to be here. I have to chance to have a real life experience to show kids how awesome God is. I am so excited for the rest of the week and I’m ready for my life and their life to change for the good.  –Kelly

Today was such an amazing day. We did VBS for the first time today. It was so great to see all the kids so excited, and it was so good to see them so happy, i know that they are happy with the life they have now. Also today we saw the kids play soccer, they were so good! I hope the week goes as good as today did, god please bless us. –Brianne

Well, today was a hot but (really hot) day. VBS for the first day. There were so many little ones. Lots of children. Think’n this was the future setting for “invasion of the little people.” They were well behaved and enjoyed each activity. They liked the soccer, too. The water fountain at the mission shoots 3 ft in the air. Too many people talk in their sleep.  –Kyle
