Another Day...

Today we got to spend some time with the local team and see the community center/church that we are trying to raise awareness for by being here. It was awesome getting to hear all about what they are currently doing and what they are looking to do in the future.

There cafe/coffee shop is amazing, the internet cafe is totally different than last year (they have highspeed now and wifi - Davo, I love the interenets!!!), the fitness center is up and running and people are in there working out all the time, and they have a bike shop they helped get started and now it's the best one in town.

The team here seems to be doing an amazing job at engaging the community. They have a very small emphasis on their Sunday morning gathering and place all the energy towards building community through jobs, hobbies, and house churches (small groups). It is really beautiful to hear them dream of where they want to lead in the future as well. I am so encouraged to know God is moving here the way that He is. Their team here is very special. I feel extremely blessed to see their hearts for this part of the world...

It does make me miss our community back home... I am a little sad I will not get to see all the hungry folk tomorrow night. I feel like we have something special there too... thanks for all of you who make it what it is.... my life wouldn't be the same without it...

I will get some pics up tomorrow...

Our God is so amazing... I am seeing it all over the place and I long to know Him better... thank you for your prayers...

Love and Peace,

-Jason
