Welcome to another Travel Tuesday! If you're new around here, read THIS POST for the why and how around this weekly link-up! I'd love to have you link up this week!
Part 1 post from last week! This week I'm going to share more about my mission there with my youth group.
During our time in Bogota, our main mission was to love on the kids that live in Suba and come to the place we ministered at on a daily basis (I cannot, for the life of me, remember the name now! It was basically a church/school building where kids could come and get a meal, learn about God, and learn things you would learn in school).
This is where we served and had lunch every day. The reason for this safe haven for the kids is because of several reasons. First, the schools in Colombia are private, and usually cost something for the kids to go to school. The parents cannot afford to send their kids to school every day, because they live on little to no income, and a lot of the kids have parents who are involved in drugs. It is really sad, but I'm glad they can come to a safe place and get an education, a meal, and learn about Jesus!
Well, I think I'm going to stop there for today. Next week my post will be all about the KIDS! They were my favorite part of the trip, and I just loved being able to step outside my comfort zone and bubble and experience a different culture and people!
Have you ever been to South America or Colombia?! Where is your favorite place to travel?
