Venezuela ~ Day 5

Ben —  June 27, 2012 — 8 Comments

God bless this day. Bless the team and be with us as we go about doing what we can to connect with the Jonas Project team. I thank you so much for this opportunity that not a lot of people can experience ever in their lifetimes. I thank you for where you have placed me and my family. I thank you, for you.

I love you.


Today is the day we work half the day and then the team splits up to go visit a “detention center” and an orphanage. I originally signed up to go with most of the guys to the detention center but I’m debating whether or not I should go to the orphanage.

We’ll see, might be a game-time decision.

    WoW! So great to hear how things are going at Project Jonas!! I had such a great time there, and I miss all the people. Yonny, for his driving and his smile. Jonny, for his enthusiasm, Lizbeth – for her caring demeanor, Flor, for her smile. So many more! Thanks for keeping us up to date on the progress there. Be sure to post updated pix of everything before you leave. GOD BLESS TEAM 2 and PROJECT JONAS!

    • I posted what I could, so check them out!
      Also, you can always request to be added to the globalX Venezuela group on facebook, check it out! (if you haven’t already)

  2. Love the pictures….btw, son, that green porcupine fruit you were holding? – Grandpa Gene would call that ‘jack fruit’

    Thanking God for the way He is using you and for the lives touching and affecting you. Pretty awesome!

  3. I love reading about your trip! I miss it SO much there! 🙁 Have an amazing time and give the boys my love please! 😀

    Hi Ben
    I’m friend of Shannon here in Atlanta. Thanks for the updates, they have brought me good memories from my homeland. I’m very grateful to what you all are doing there, only God knows how much help we need there, God bless you all!
    I hope you get to try all the delicious variety of cheeses there, the chocolate is the best and of course the arepas with infinite variety of fillings!
    That fruit you’re holding is a Guanabana, pretty hard to find it in the US, even in Buford farmers market.
    To surprise the kids there I would suggest using “Na Guara” (pronounced “nah warah”) which is a typical expression of people from Barquisimeto and means (kind of) “that’s too much”…I bet they will have some fun.
    Keep the updates coming; I have another good friend doing the same trip with Jonas next week, hope you’re around to keep the blogging while she is there.
    God bless you and safe travels back home!
