The highlight for our family during the time the Team was here was the night the Scoggins had a local gospel band come and play music for us. They play music native to Bolivia and they were amazing. I could not stop smiling it was so wonderful. They played the Charrango (kinda like a mandolin) and Zamponyas of all sizes (the flute things). Like all Bolivian music it was nice and loud, but so great to listen to that we didn't mind!

The only bummer thing that happened when the Team was with us in Coch was that Richard had an accident while working on the play structure. He fractured his collar bone and broke his jaw. As I am writing this toward the end of Sept he is all healed up, but it was a long road to recovery for him with surgeries and having his jaw wired shut for at least a three weeks. While he suffered in the hospital he wanted Gladys to continue on with the things that they had planned for us. One of those things included a super sweet time of saying goodbye to our friends at the Km. O church that we had attended over the past two years. We also shared this time with saying goodbye to the Kansas team. They had us each share something including each of our children. We also played a Bolivian rendition of spin the bottle. When the bottle pointed to you, you had to share a verse, song or some type of blessing, ect. It was a lot of fun and very memorable for sure!!
