1. We had 2 shows at Roosevelt School- they went well! (7:00 and 8:00)
2. Our 3rd show was at Heaven's Kingdom, a Christian "Hermanos Libres" school. Hermanos Libres is name of the non-denominational "denomination" that I am from. I love this small world stuff! I talked to some of the teachers and an Argentine missionary and we knew a lot of the same people and all went to the Anniversary Converence in August (see august posts...).
3. It started to POUR at about 10:30 while we were starting our 3rd show. Thankfully we were inside; however, we couldn't transfer our equipment to our car when we were done without it getting ruined in the rain. When it pours like this, the country practically shuts down. Kids don't go to school and people stay inside. I found out today that it's actually dangerous to be outside in the rain due to a lot of live wires (a lot of deaths have happened this way), and/or many kids can't get their school clothes wet so their parents keep them home from school. We decided to cancel our afternoon shows.
4. We ate an awesome lunch at Mirian's house and when we sat down to eat, her sister gave thanks to God for our food. While she was praying she asked the Lord to give us strength and wisdom while teaching our kids for the afternoon. After her prayer, we said thanks, but we're not having any programs! oh well. Let's eat! After lunch, we looked out the window and found a beautiful day. Ah man! We were ready for a siesta! Off we went.
5. When we arrived at our second school for the afternoon, we found that ALL of the kids had stayed home because of the rain. The principal of the school (public school) asked us if we could stay and talk to her middle schoolers (6th, 7th and 8th graders). We didn't know what we should do. We don't want to use puppets with them... our show is for little kids. We prayed about it and decided that we should take the opportunity. We each gave a short testimony about God's faithfulness. We told the students that God loves us so much that he sent Jesus to die for us so that we can go to heaven! When we have a personal relationship with God, through Jesus, he is a best friend that we can count on for everything. Talking to teenagers is a lot more scary for me than talking to little kids, but I survived and they really listened! God really is answering my own prayers about my Spanish fluency too ;)
