Day Four: Jesus Statue
Tonight we went to the Jesus Statue to do our devotional. The statue sits on the edge of a mountain overlooking the city. Just as we were leaving for the statue it began to rain but we decided to try and go anyways. We hadn't been there more than a few minutes when it began to rain REALLY hard. We all hurried up the stairs to seek shelter literally underneath the feet of Jesus. We stayed there under the statue singing and doing our devo. As I stood their getting wet from rain I was struck at the irony that it was US who were standing outside in the rain while two families in the dump community were pillowing their heads in a brand new and very DRY house! :) God is so good.
