Team: First Baptist Church of Cross City, FL
Written by: Faith B.
Six days ago, our team flew out from various places within the United States to join God in His Kingdom in Colombia. We arrived in the beautiful city of Bogota but quickly traveled to Facatativa, where we worshipped with a local church. Then we travelled to Villeta; a colorful town two hours away from Bogota. Even though we came as a team, we immediately partnered with local churches, pastors and sweet friends to work together to accomplish what God had called us to do.
After settling in, we prayerfully followed the Spirit’s guidance into Sasaima’s local elementary.
We worked together with local churches and have intentional spiritual conversations as we played.
Even though we came to make a difference in Colombia, we left being impacted by the Colombia culture and people as a team. We could not have done what we did without the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Also, shout out to our three great translators, including our trip leader, Alfred, who made this experience unbelievably amazing. We could not have grasped the culture without them.
We are forever thankful for the opportunity to be God’s hands. We are extremely excited to see more of the amazing things He will continue to do in the future.
