We owe so much to Rich Meiser, Jeff Postans and Adam (our SPY construction project lead) for being excellent teachers and leaders in helping us to build this ramp and complete the various other projects at Ms. Sumner's house. I am so proud of the youth for being willing to learn new things, for encouraging one another, and for working together to serve others in Christian love. They were truly the hands and feet of Christ this week, sharing God's love and grace with those they encountered. I am so blessed to be in ministry alongside such amazing youth, and it is so incredibly awesome to be living into my calling each and every day. People don't always get to say that they get to do what they are truly passionate about every day. My heart and my calling are for journeying alongside youth as they explore, grow and live out their faith, and it is especially an honor when I get to live that out through things like retreats and mission trips. I can't wait to keep doing what I love each day!
Check out our last day on the work site:
This evening was a campfire, smores and a talent show!
Tomorrow morning we will have breakfast, clean up, pack up and load up and it's back to Farmville. A huge thank you to Rich, Jeff and Whitney for joining me in leading this youth mission trip, and thank you to each of you again for your prayers and support for our team. You have been a part of our mission as well and we truly appreciate it.
