I wondered if the main auditorium might actually be a bit big for the concert, but boy, was I wrong. That auditorium was packed out! They said about 4,000 people were there! The coolest part was that I barely any other white people besides David and I, and I don't think I heard a word of English except in the cafe when I ordered a drink. I felt so inspired and impressed with how the Hispanic ministry of our church has grown exponentially over the last few years.
After she sang a few songs, she gave a little information about herself, claiming her Mexican heritage and the fact that she married a Colombian American. :)
I also got to reconnect with a friend from Colombia who hosted us for dinner in her home two years in a row the first two summers we went to Colombia, both times with Julian. We never ended meeting up our last summer there while adopting Juan David, so I enjoyed introducing them to each other finally. After seven years in Colombia, God finally brought them back to the States again. I sure am thankful God let us connect in Colombia, though. I can't tell you what a comfort it was both years to find your own church family when you're living on another continent.
