Today, Lois and I again stopped in a McDonald's for me to tell you we are all alive! Thanks for your prayers! :D (Sorry parents! That was a joke, you don't have to call the kids to check!) Haha! Our Amazing Grace Transformers have been working well with a group from California on the house of two women, Maria and Tasha in a Hispanic community. After the passing away of the grandfather, their home had accumulated trash after years of hoarding and other health hazards. Pastor Randy from Acts 1:8 Mission Society and Pastor Aaron from here in San Antonio have been working alongside this family in making the home livable and lovable. The week before the National Youth Gathering, a group painted the outside of the house. This weekend, some of the Californians are up on the roof to repair cracks, damages, and other holes. Others are inside the house moving furniture, carpeting the floors, and painting. Some of the ladies and youth stayed outside to brighten up the front yard by pulling weeds and picking up pieces of trash.

It is really great to see interaction happen! Two of the girls, Evelin and Sarahi, from California, speak Spanish and are really getting to know these ladies. Others of us are just building upon relationships we started in the past with Mackenna, Olin, and Pastor Randy. In our Circle Time we have also started those new friendships and almost wish for a few extra days to really get to know them and experience more of God's Amazing Grace. Continued prayers for health of our PALs, Lois and Robin, and youth are much appreciated. 

This morning we discussed God's grace and mercy! So, "Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father's Son, be with you in truth and love!" (2 John 1:3) May God's Riches At Christ's Expense be with you as you let GRACE shine through.

Well we must be going again, as 2 John 12 says, "I have much to write to you, but I do not want to use paper and ink. Instead, I hope to visit you and talk with you face to face so that our joy may be complete." We have so many more stories to share and be experienced that we will share when we get back from our journey with Jesus to San Antonio, TX! Blessings as you too Live Loved with God's Amazing Grace!

What a wonderful service event, We can only imagine the excitement those two women are experiencing seeing God's love, and yours, in action first hand. May the Lord continue to keep you all safe. We are anxious to hear more about the experiences each of you have to share.
