A visit from Portachuelo

Portachuelo is a small town 42 miles from the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia. This past weekend we had the visit of 16 students and three teachers from the Christian School founded and directed by Merlyn and Marion Schultz. I created a hosting committee of 20 of our faithful Christian students to welcome and be with the Portachuelo group all the time and make new friends. They participated of our chapel time at school on Friday and played sports; at night they had a walk with fun activities till they arrived to the house where supper was waiting, a traditional “majao” dish. On Saturday a picnic by the Parapety River beach was planned. The day began gray and cloudy with fine rain, but we went ahead with our plans and by the time we got to our spot, the drizzle had stopped. Internet had showed an unlikely weather forecast for outing, but our sovereign Lord overruled it. We could not have asked the Lord for a better day! There they got tired of hiking through the hills and got wet crossing to the river. In the evening they were in our regular meeting for young people and went for pizza straight afterwards. On Sunday we were together for Breaking of Bread, Sunday school and Dinner. Then they had free time till they got the night bus back to Portachuelo.

  1. ¡Wow! Qué divertido se ve todo. Se me antojó meterme también al agua, especialmente por los calores que están haciendo por acá, y además…hmmmm…¡una rebanada de pizza!, je,je. Y te diré como decimos por acá: ¡Cómo sufres Andrés!, ja,ja,ja. Es un chascarrillo jarocho hermanito. Saludos a tus muchachos.
    Un abrazo afectuoso.
