Paraguay Sunday

This was our Paraguay Sunday and it went VERY well! It began with all of us joining the worship team to sing the Hillsong Hosanna doing the chorus in Spanish. For the offertory there was a slide show set to Brandon Heath's "Give me your eyes". Then Karl shared how the missions team came to be, Rick Elola shared the scripture (Rom. 10:5-15) and then all 6 of us shared some story from our experience in Paraguay. We concluded w/ Bob's video Paraguay: Field Overview.

Afterwards we had some Paraguayan treats on the patio (the mixes I brought back and cakes w/ the dulce de leche frosting, chipa) and sold jewelry to support the San Lorenzo women's ministry so they can hopefully get some dishes before the next tea!

We had a Q & A time afterwards in the fellowship hall to answer questions about the trip and start forming the team for next year's trip. It's time to start forming the team - lots of interest from the Tilleys, some of the Mattson-Boze family, Lindsey and others. Biggest challenge will the 10 person cap - we may have to schedule two trips if interest remains high.
