Hot dogs, Rio Bravo, and grills

What a packed few days it has been working with the Myakka Church of God! The team of 9 arrived late Tuesday night and will leave tomorrow. They have accomplished so much both at Casa Shalom and at the Rio Bravo feeding Center. On Wednesday, we all left the orphanage at 4:30 am to make it to the feeding center by breakfast at 6:30. The team helped serve breakfast to the kids and was able to bring a large quantity of food like milk, pancake mix and ham to donate to the feeding center. The team has also been hard at work at Casa Shalom - the women have cleaned and organized the kitchen and food and clothing storage areas. The men completed a large concrete grill and have worked to get the orphanage's well in running condition. Tonight, the team hosted a hot-dog cookout (450 hot dogs!) on the new grill. The team has been a huge blessing to Casa Shalom and we pray they return soon!

May God continue to bless the Myakka Church Of God. All of the group I'm sure was a blessing to this place. This church has to have one of the best Pastors known to God. Continue working for our Father. God bless this church, its pastor, and all of its wonderful Godly people.
