El Faro and Quetzalapa

The last weekend in April was a busy, but very good one!  On Saturday we went to a town called El Faro, about an hour and a half away.  Fausto, a man who goes to another church in town here, has been going to El Faro every week for 2 years trying to start a church there.  So, Ben gathered his team of Christian soccer players and took them to El Faro to play a match against a team there.  It was such a great day, and such an encouragement to Fausto and his ministry there.  At halftime Chico and Ben shared their testimonies and Fausto shared the Gospel, and after the game the men just spent time talking with the players.   The kids had a blast playing with the other kids and also watching the pigs run through the field and then swim in the mud!  We all left encouraged and blessed by the people of El Faro.  

On Sunday we went about 30 minutes away to Quetzalapa where we partnered with a church there and did a clinic for kids.  We had about 40 kids there and it was a great time!  It was really encouraging to see the church really get behind it, too.  Several women came with juice and sandwiches for the kids after the clinic was over, and the pastor shared the Gospel.  Our kids had a blast being a part of it and getting to play some soccer with other kids.
