Today was probably the hottest day since we've been here -- and man did we feel it. I think we were all relieved when the afternoon rain came through and cooled it all off.
During devotional tonight, Amber had us all share a moment where we saw God within the team. Some shared about how they found inspiration in the work their team was doing, and some shared the Christ-like qualities they saw in their team members. One name that came up multiples times was Larry, the team leader for one of the worksites.
Larry is a local pastor in San Juan and has been leading the team of JT, Hannah, Amber, and Baker. Today I got the opportunity to join their worksite and personally experience some of the ways Larry embodies Christ in his everyday actions.
When I asked JT to describe Larry, he said, "He was in the streets the day after the hurricane hit, bringing people food and water. I remember him saying that the silver lining in it all, was that it brought the community closer together. And I think that shows how much heart he has."
FYI We lost power here tonight so if I don't get the chance to charge my phone, I might not be able to send a post tomorrow. (so we hope he gets a chance to charge it up!)
