RockPointe Family Adventure Trip - Day 4
After a Siesta in the afternoon, we went to a poor community, Flamboyanes, near Progreso. We set up parachute games, hoola hoops, floor hockey, basketball, and volleyball for the children, after they were dismissed from school, to join in the activities. The sound system pumping jam music made the start of this interaction with the locals, super fun. We then performed our Drama, from song and dance – the story of Noah’s Ark, a puppet show, a Drama skit about Faith, and chalk art. Following the show, there was coloring and more fun interaction with local families and their children. Again, equals. No masks to separate our color of skin or socioeconomic status. And certainly it did not matter which career we had as we mingled with laughter and hopeful spirits. We were all greeted warmly and said our goodbyes with being asked “What day will you be back?” The children kissed our cheeks and off we went in the vans. We are thankful for the local interpreters on the megaphone and for translating our Drama skit. We are also thankful for the ministry of C-Quest bringing hope to a community known for gang activity!
Stay tuned for the update of the 5th day of this journey tomorrow.
Blessings to all.
