Profile of Brenda Murray.      "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you" (Matt 28:19-20a).

     Of all the wonderful aspects of this trip, the one that blessed me the most was the way in which God worked in the lives of the children.
Everyday the number of children at the VBS grew bigger and bigger.  We even got the opportunity to minister to the children in the neighborhood where we were staying.  One night, on the sidewalk in front of our
apartment, twenty children asked Jesus into their lives.  It was so wonderful just to spend time with them and see their smiling faces
everyday.  They received us with open arms from the very first day we were there.  The adults in San Juan showed the same love and openness to us all.  They displayed the love of Christ not only in their faces, but also through their actions.  Although we were there to serve them, they were just as eager to serve us.  They treated us as if they had known us their whole lives.  I really love the people and I miss them already!
