Last night we all spent an evening with various families who hosted us for dinner. It was incredible to get to know some of the members of the church, meet the perfect English speaking children, and eat delicious BBQ’d ribs and steak. It was probably the best meal I’ve had not only here in Venezuela, but in a few months even. The Pineda’s were awesome hosts, and hopefully we’ll get to stop by one of their Pizzeria’s that the father owns while we’re down here.
Since this family actually had an internet connection, I introduced them to my family via skype. It was awesome. Hopefully they’ll want to come visit next time, or maybe we can take a family vacation here someday. That would be amazing.
Today is our last work day, and we all still feel like there is SO much that we could accomplish here. I just hope what we are doing for this place leaves a lasting impact on the boys after we leave. There’s no doubt they are in good hands, but just to be a part of their “growth” is such an amazing experience, I wish we could stay longer.
If only we had a couple of weeks instead of just one…
