SPY Day 2

Today was our first full day here in Christiansburg, and what an awesome day it was! After breakfast and mini clean (different cleaning tasks around the church for each group) we joined Fieldstone UMC for worship. It was a beautiful modern worship service surrounding SPY's theme for the summer, "Let there be..." as we look at God's act of creation and the ways God continues to create in this world! We were reminded that God doesn't just say "ehh that will do" or "yeah, that's alright" when God creates. Instead God says, "It is GOOD!" 

After worship we headed to the Cascades for lunch and our hike to the waterfall.  It was a beautiful day and the youth had a blast swimming in the waterfall. 

We came back to Fieldstone for dinner then had a chance to drive out to our work sites to see the scope of the work we will be doing.  Unfortunately one of our sites required more work than was realized (an entire new roof) that is beyond the scope of our abilities and SPY's budget.  Please pray for this family as they along with Fieldstone UMC and The Christiansburg community figure out next steps to repair their home.  The construction crew is taking a look at a few other sites for us and we should know in the morning where we will be headed. Rich, MacKenzie and Brooke arrived safely this evening, so now we are a complete team of 17! 

We ended the night with an awesome worship service! 

Again, thank you for your prayers. Please keep them coming tomorrow as we begin our work! 

Grace and Peace,

Rev. Lyndsie Blakely
