The singles reality had an outing last weekend, with two main purposes: team building and giving school supplies to the children in Olango.
We had lots of fun and enjoyed very much the island hopping on Saturday. It was a great way to get to know each other better, and enjoy the beautiful sea. At the end of the day, we had team building dynamics, which many of us found it helpful. We were asked to write something positive about each person... some surprises were found!...
On Sunday morning, after a short time of prayer, we set off to the local church in Tingo, Olango, where around 170 children met us. Arman was a great animator, leading the music and some animation songs. As it was Pentecost day, we performed a skit about the dead bones of Ezekiel 37. Margarida explained it being like our lives before and after welcoming God’s Spirit. The gift of the Holy Spirit given to us at Pentecost enables us to be friends of God and gathers us as a Christian family. The Holy Spirit is also the One who inspired people to be generous and sponsor the school supplies and snacks. So we prayed for them before the group sharing and the distribution of the school supplies.
‘It was a great joy to see the children’s happiness’ said Mark at the end of this activity.
