Other Mission News
February 4th, 2019
It was another beautiful day here! Our day started with an 8 o'clock breakfast and then a time of discussion and prayer. We are all going to share some of our stories and reasons for wanting to be involved in this mission as we gather over the next week. Today Buck, Alisha and I shared how our church is involved and what it means to us. It was very well received by the group as there was hardly a dry eye in the house. Steve Jones led the devotion time focusing on what words describe missions, (servant, team, hard work, humble, glorious, primary)teaching from Luke 5; 4-10.
The kids were so excited when we arrived today. I was driving one of the vans and I rolled my window down and high fived them as they jumped up and down hollering "big mama, big mama" as we drove in the driveway! They were excited to see the Canadiens! It's a great feeling!
With such a big team and no major projects the kids got lots of love and attention. It was awesome to see and be a part of.
The Drumhellor church brought a volleyball net with them and purchased a pingpong table here. We dug some holes for the posts for the net but didn't get them in yet because we needed concrete and a drill bit. Hopefully Monday the net will be up and we can beat the kids in a game of volleyball because we don't stand a chance at beating them at soccer!
Geoff and Melody had us all over to their house for Geoff's famous barbecue! It was absolutely delicious! Steak, ribs, potatoes, beans, beets salad and homemade pickles, yum!
What a nice home they have! Geoff is so good for Melody!
Pray for Tina she doesn't have the support Melody does and she is in a bad way! She is totally exhausted and overwhelmed. Pray for direction, for hope and joy for her.
The team has come together like brothers and sisters of The king should! Thanks for your prayers!
