Day 3 – Back at the YWAM Base

It is Tuesday morning, and we are back at the YWAM base.  We have had an amazing two days.  The majorty of the last 48 hours has been traveling to and from Usulutan (rural community near the Pacific coast) and finishing the construction of a bakery… nailng up cross beams and putting on a metal roof.   With the heat indext being at or over 100, it has been an incredible feat.  The response from the community has been overwhelming.  Last night they donated two chickens for dinner, and they baked us bread in their new bakery.   FYI – the chickens were the not the frozen ones that we pick up at Shop and Save or buy prebaked at Sam’s club… no, they were carried them in upside down and presented to our cook.  Fortunately, we did not see the rest.  The bread was amazing… it tasted like a mix between corn bread and the sweet shortcake my mom use to make for stawberry shortcake.  Yum!  God is certainly good… keeping us all healthy… giving us ample opportunities to serve!  I am so proud of our team and how they handle each new experience… grow accustomed to a different culture… and open themselves up to helping others who are less fortunate.
