day 4 - quick update!

(Nora, trying her first bite of fresh local pineapple. She's also had fresh, local mango and starfruit this week!) 

 Finally--- they are painting at the park! I showed pictures the other day of the walls that were covered in graffiti. After much hassle, they finally were able to powerwash and scrub the walls and then begin painting today. :)

 I know it's hard to see from this perspective, but our playground is REALLY shaping up nicely. We've been doing step by step whatever Jordan asks of us, totally lost as to what we were doing- but now, we can finally see where it's heading, and it's going to be awesome! 
 It was the last day of VBS, and it was a bittersweet day. Over the course of a few days, our group has grown to love these children, and it is so hard to say goodbye. We are hoping to see some of the VBS kids at a few different things throughout the remainder of our time here, though.
We ate a delicious dinner and had a relaxing evening. We went down to the basketball courts and the boys enjoyed playing. A few locals jumped in towards the end... now we're waiting on the guys to return to do a Bible study.
Tomorrow--- THE BEACH!!!!
Sorry this is so quick and short, but I want to go hangout with our group! Please continue to pray for us! Thank you!
