Been another great but intense week on the streets. Surprisingly Monday was very messy, we took home some girls who were getting harassed by some italian guy who had got his penis out and was waving it around. We didn't actually see it although if I had I would have been inclined to give it a good hard slap. These girls were only 18, one of them was in a complete mess.
We then took 3 other girls home, this was messier and the drunk girl had completely lost all sense of decency!! The sights we see. There was vomit everywhere on Monday, one of our team took a hit straight to the face when a girl she was trying to revive projectile vomited all over her. Not nice!!
We have given all our full versions of the bible away to the prostitutes and thankfully are awaiting some others that have been kindly donated. Hopefully they will get here this week.
The team from Southern Ireland have been great, we don't normally have teams with so many boys but this team has had 5 which is so cool.
What's been really great about this week is that apart from Monday we have not had to use the van much therefore giving us more time out connecting with people, chatting, praying, listening and giving away bibles. This has thrown up some really good opportunities for us to talk about our faith and tell people why we do what we do. We've sat with some people for over an hour just listening to their woes and stresses often resulting in prayer and always received with gratitude. Thankfully we don't get in to many intense debates or arguments people trust us.
It's been very hot and sticky this week which makes the work harder, I would enjoy lying around in this for two weeks, but working in it is another level.
We continue to breath in and breath out, which is good, it suggests life.
