Serving others - DAY 1

Well, day 1, here we are, up early and ready to SERVE.... and wondering how we will be used this week. The organization we are working with is called Community Crossing . We are here as a family to see what mission trips can look like for families (verse the typical trip of youth groups). Here we are with 6 kids who traveled more than a days drive to serve, wondering can we really get anything done to be of blessing to anyone?
Monday we had 2 projects to complete:
#1 Finish some painting and replace baseboards after painting at the "club house" where we are staying.
  • WORKERS: Steve, Chuck and Tutu
  • STATUS: painting - done, baseboards - in progress
#2 Help with some winterizing at a neighbors home.
  • WORKERS: Amy, Ria, Bernie, and Eugene
  • STATUS: discovered lack of some supplies at work site, modified plan did some cleaning, organizing and fellowshipping with the Grandmother and Great Grandmother.
Blessings went both ways!

Our evening was a time for family fellowship, fun and games.
this is our "mess hall" where we eat, play and share.This is our sleeping quarters - where we yes sleep! plenty of top bunks so everyone can have a TOP well not Dad, Mom or Baby!
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5: 14-16

Praying our light will shine and as we love the people here they will be not only blessed but encouraged in their faith walk!
