Romans 12:13
Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

One thing that is done exceptionally well in the churches here is hospitality. No matter how little a family has, they always seem willing to share it with you. Today, we had lunch with Juan Quino's family--his mom, Manuela is especially gifted at making people feel at home. One of our students, Nick, is staying with them right now.We had great beef stew and plenty of tamalitos, with everyone gathered around tables they brought out to the covered porch.
Then we marched up the little foot path single file to the church building for worship services. It was good to see everyone, and our students seemed to be comfortable with their families.

After church, we marched back to the house and finished the afternoon with hot cups of pinol (ground dried corn steeped with cinnamon and sugar) and bread. We enjoyed good conversation and Roger McCown practiced his language skills on the family. It was a great time spent with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
