Whole New View

Yesterday was a holiday here in Chile. We have had beautiful late fall weather. It was refreshing to get out of the city and enjoy nature. The summer project students and some of my team went on a hike to El Pochoco. After a steep climb you get rewarded with a whole new view of the central Andes from the summit. They are big! The creation declares the glory of God!
Today on campus I met with Patricio for discipleship. We went to a classroom of freshmen and invited them to our winter conference. Afterwards we ran into one of his classmates. She had just given a talk in her class about world hunger. And it wasn't just homework for her she truly values the needy, working for a social service organization here in Chile that creates jobs for the poor. We started talking about world hunger and ended up talking about the gospel for over an hour. It was great to be able to take her to a few new places where she could begin to gaze into the beauty of God. He is BIG!
