Colombia Trip

Published March 17, 2010 by First Methodist Carrollton in 

For those of you that don’t know, this year’s trip to Colombia left last weekend. Here is an update from Mike Patzig about the trip:

The plane that Jeff and Mike were on got diverted to Atlanta, and they ended up flying the last leg to Bogota on the same flight as everyone else !

They had a great time Saturday at the Jungle (the new label for The Other Way from the Big Foot project) with about 60 Kids.  

Sunday: They traveled across town (1 1/2 hours) to visit a lady (Mary) who runs a drop-in school in a Squatter’s town (very poor area).   We are very interesting to the folks who are on the outskirts of the city, and are treated like movie stars – they reported having a great time.

The only bad news:  Leah was playing soccer and broke a toe (we think…) and after two days, Robyn ran out of soap and rags for the fish craft, so they had to buy more! Which is the right kind of problem to have !

Steve (the main missionary leader) had some heart issues last week, I spoke with him this morning, and the new medicine is working very well – he has more energy, is making jokes, and wanting to buy the supplies for my trip (next week) so that is a huge praise.

Keep them in your prayers!
