We Saw God....

Mari Beth Poor

....so many times today. Here's just a few:

Betsy saw God in the joyful spirits and sweet faces of the children at La Montana- an "at risk" area. She was moved by their joy in the midst of desperate circumstances.

Amy saw God through Marilyn and Hairo, a couple who have spent the past 20 years loving displaced families at La Montana. They are holistically ministering to the single moms and their children through education, food, and spiritual feeding.

Ron saw God in Juan David- a 30 year old man who decided success couldn't be found in money and has found his greatest treasure in faithfully ministering to the community at La Montana. The people absolutely adore him, and his commitment to the families was moving. 

Jeff saw God in the ways the children at La Montana take care of each other and how they have an "others first" attitude. 

MB saw God when Marilyn (who leads the ministry at La Montana) said that though the people from La Montana are incredibly poor, THEY are reaching out to an even poorer district and ministering to them. Such love!!

John saw God move during the business seminar he gave today- 15 people who came to the seminar are going to give church a chance tomorrow. Vida Bogota's commitment to reaching the leaders in the community is changing lives!
 

 Precious angel!

 New friends- they wanted to know everything about America and loved that MB liked One Direction (which she is embarrassed to confess...)

 It thrilled the girls to learn that Betsy had seen the Statue of Liberty. :) It's the simple things.
