On Palm Sunday I said goodbye to the church, my host family, and Pital. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel towards the community for the opportunity to live, work, and worship with them for seven months. Even more so I feel very grateful for my host family, especially my host mom Claudia, for opening their home to me. I am thankful for the many incredible experiences I have had in Pital, and the people of the church and my host family who have made this time special.
After spending Holy Week getting to know the people of Septima, I began my new placement this week. In addition to being involved with the regular activities of the church, I am working with Comunidad Cristiana Betesda (Bethesda Christian Community) and Colegio Nazareth Olaya (Nazareth Olaya School), both ministries of La Iglesia Septima.
