A few of the youth even took some time to use some of the scrap wood to make a birdhouse! Ms. Sumner was so excited and asked them to hang it on a particular tree in the back yard.
Tonight's dinner was the community cookout where all of the groups invite their home owners to come and have dinner with us. Ms. Sumner was excited about the opportunity but wasn't able to make it. It was neat to see several others from the community come, though, and fellowship alongside those they are in relationship with this week. Even the mayor of Christiansburg and his wife came to eat with us and thanked us for all we are doing for the community through Project SPY.
After dinner we had the opportunity to paint a few canvases as a group. Our theme this week is "Spark". How do we take that spark God gives each of us and fan the flame to truly ignite our lives for Christ? So we were able to think creatively about the theme and put it into art. Each person got a square to fill with their ideas. I think we came up with some really neat and beautiful creations!
