During March, we receive 4 one week outreaches. The past two have been such a blessing and really an encouragement in our site. We just had a group from JMU here and we really learned the truth behind "delighting in our weaknesses". This group showed that being a Christian isn't about "having it all together". We really learned that its about showing how God's glory has shined through our many faults and flaws. We had the chance to be really real with each other and share about things we are struggling with or things we have struggled with. As a result, we found ourselves sighing with relief to know that we weren't the only ones who had wrestling with particular sins. In the end, we were reminded of how big God's love is and how his power is truly made perfect despite our weaknesses. I am thankful to have a God who loves us, despite our areas of weakness.
Here are some pictures from this last outreach.
Hanging out and playing games with Corocito
Shout-out to all my BCVB girls who taught me great games like "zip-bong" and "ninga" which are still being playing here in the DR!
Practice with Varsity
Rain or shine... we still practice!
In other news, Mabelis Acevedo, who graduated from VC Revolution 2 years ago, and has been serving alongside us as an volunteer, will now step into a more prominent position of "assistant". She will take a bigger role in the site. We are super pumped to have her on board! Just for this summer, Chelsie will be helping less with the girls sports site and more with the teams that come down. The plan is that this will be a temporary thing and she will come back to helping full time the the sports site in September. God is good and we are so thankful to be able to have the chance to use volleyball to reach girls for Christ. I swear I have the best job in the world!
