Today was a good full day of work, many of us will complete our project tomorrow and move to other jobs on Thursday. Tomorrow is the half day off so we will work till noon and then be off, pray for us to have fun and get rested up for a big finish to this week. God is really working here in Chattanooga. The girls are sharing sleeping space with another church and two of the girls from Valley View Baptist in Alabama were able to lead three children to Christ today!! How AWESOME! More pictures tomorrow...

Chattanooga - Day 3

Today has been a long, but GOOD day!!! We are all tired, but it is a good tired!!
We all had a full work day today and we did everything from painting, pressure washing, yard work, cleaning out utility sheds etc... The weather was beautiful all day and PTL for cooler temperatures. We had an incredible worship and youth devotion tonight, I think all of the students shared one or more things with the group. Please continue to pray for the team as God is really working on them as well as us!!
I have posted a few more pictures, but I can not get pictures of all the students so we decided as a group tonight that they are all taking pictures at their individual jobs and we will combine them when we get home onto a disc, so you will have to wait for the "action" shots :-) !!

WC Chattanooga - Day 2

Today has been a great day!!! We met our crews this morning, went to church with our crew, lunch and then visited the locations of our individual projects for the week. We will be doing many different things; painting, roofing, siding, building a wall and replacing an entire bathroom floor to name a few... This afternoon we will be going through some Evangelism training and the students will be training on specific crew positions that some of them will carry out this week, then dinner and worship. To all of you who prayed for cooler weather, AMEN!! The weather has been great the last two days and looks like it may continue to be cooler during our stay.
Please pray for us this week, that everything we say and do will be a reflection of Christ love!!! Also, tomorrow morning the "GREAT SEND OFF" is at 7:00 a.m., we have 32 projects this week, we will need GOD'S speed to finish them all! Our team is divided into 7 different crews so we are really spread out this year, but I will do my best to post pictures during the week.

St Vincent Day 7

Today was another great day!!! It was our last day of going to the ministry sites. However we were able to exchange contact info. so we can keep up with those we have met. We had a man come to where today asking for a Bible. We gave one to him and I also sat down and talked with him. He does have a relationship with Christ but was curios about growing in his faith. We had a great talk.

Tomorrow is our free day as we head to the beach and also around town. Then we head home Sat. morning. It has been a great trip. I hope to add some more pics tonight or tomorrow.

Thanks everyone for the messages and encouragement. It means a lot to know you are praying for us.
