Sunday, June 6th

It's been a busy week so I'll start at the beginning.... Asbury UMC got to K37 on Sunday night and we spent the next three days working there and at the sanctuary in Piedras Blancas.  They worked on the gym, sanded and painted the metalwork on one of the cabins, and started covering the sidewalks.  This task will serve a triple purpose: a) keeping people dry b) keeping the sidewalks from getting covered in slippery moss c) looking really cool when all of the buildings at the camp are connected by covered sidewalks.  In Piedras they poured 3/4 of the sidewalks around the sanctuary.  Not bad for three days work!

On Thursday we followed Asbury to another camp about half way between San Isidro and San Jose.  We were met there by 30 children from La Carpio, one of the toughest and most impoverished areas of San Jose.  We spent the next two and a half days rock climbing, rappeling, free falling, swimming in an ice cold river and most importantly smothering those kids with as much of God's love as humanly possible.

This morning Don Hugo and I drove back to K37 for the official inauguration of the camp.  I got a lump in my throat when we walked up to the gym and saw about 600 people worshipping there.  After four years of hard work by hundreds of missioners, God is using that place for exactly what we have hoped for...to draw people closer to Him.  I only wish that all the teams who have worked so hard there over the last four years could have been there to see it.  We'll be working there through the summer to finish the gym and bathrooms, re-paint everything and leave it like new in August.  

Finally, when we got back to San Isidro I swung by the church and picked up Colby, a volunteer who will be working with us until August.  Colby is a member of Asbury UMC and has come for the past three years with the teams they send to work with us.  We're looking forward to seeing how his understanding of missions grows and watching him communicate that with the other teams coming down this summer.  Colby will also be contributing to this blog from time to time.

No team this week but we already have a long list of things to do...please pray for the CRMP team as we head into this busy Summer season...

Peace On Earth
