Mission Trip – Day 4 pm

What an exciting few days we’ve had!! These kids are working so hard…and as their parents you should be so proud of them!! I know I am! These past few days have been super warm and super sunny and packed with the tough task of demolishing this trailer home! Lots of heavy lifting and physical labor have been offered by the students and little complaining has come with that! So great! I think there are a few great things about this week. First, it’s great to have one project to focus on all week! Moreso…it’s great to work alongside our students in this way and get to know each one better! Lastly, its awesome to see all of the progress we’ve made!!! From a whole trailer home to a steel frame and a few piles of rubbish (that will hopefully be gone tomorrow!!), its fantastic to be able to see our progress and know that at the end of the day we’ve made a significant difference! :)

This morning started off with an energizing cleaning of the shower rooms and another delicious breakfast. Following breakfast we had our worship experience since we’d be away in the evening. Our worship experience included Lectio Divino (or devine reading) where we read a passage of scripture 4 times to see what stuck out to us and what God wants us to do or change because of that. I encourage you to ask your kids about this experience to see how Hebrews 11:1-16 spoke to them!

So as a reward for all our hard man (and woman) power we had the afternoon and evening off! Storms interrupted our fun at the pool (which yielded little opportunity for fixing that farmer’s tan I’ve gained this week) – so we enjoyed lots of extra fries at Red Robin!! We then went to City Island where David whooped us all in mini golf with his “consistent” putting skills! All in all a great break from the hard work we’ve been doing and hopefully a rejuvenation for our last day of finishing up the job tomorrow!! Thanks for all your prayers and keep ‘em coming!!
