Today we painted the primer on the outside of the house at the second worksite. It’s been my favorite job so far! A little girl named Sophia who is the niece of the people we are building the house for lives next door. She played with me by singing the riddles that you do with another person with your hands. I think we did that for a good 15 minutes. It’s kind of frustrating sometimes not knowing what they say but it’s awesome to see how you can really interact.
This afternoon we had our culture activity. We made puppy chow for the Cristo Rey Church. They loved it! We played tag and hide and seek with some kids. All the kids had a blast with the piñata and balloons. I also got to hold the cutest baby girl! Her mom looked to be about only sixteen years old. It’s amazing how fast the kids become attached to you and how fast you adore them. You leave feeling like you are family.
This has been my first experience on an international mission trip. It has certainly opened my eyes. It’s made me realize how blessed I really am!
