Satan attempted to destroy our plans today, but God is bigger. Two of our teammates were sick and unable to join us today. They were discouraged about not being able to come, but are doing much better now. At Kadacar we finished up the lessons and the clinic was able to see all the students! The highlight of the day was giving blankets to all of the children. Pastor Michael shared his story of receiving a blanket when he was a child and the effect it had on his life. It was so amazing to give that special gift to so many children.
In the afternoon, we began the mattress distribution. We would walk to each house, pull out whatever old bedding they had, put down the new mattress, and made the bed with new sheets. Stating the process does not even begin to touch what goes on in those homes. Pastor Michael is so great at praying for the people and finding out their stories. The gratefulness and joy of these people cannot be described in words. To see 70 and 80 year old people receiving their first bed is so humbling. You truly see the image of God in these people as they praise God for His provision.
