Tampa Mision Trip - Day 2 on projects

Everyone had a great day!! We worked on VBS, cleaning gutters, painting and yard work. There are many jobs here and many opportunities to give God the glory for allowing us the opportunities to serve Him and further the Kingdom through service. It is trips like these that make us so thankful that we are from a mission minded church that teaches and encourages us to go out and share with others. We are a blessed team!! Thank you for your continued prayers!

Tampa Mission Trip - First day at work sites

Today was a good day!! The word from each of the three sites we are serving at "HOT"!!! We have two teams on VBS and afternoon street evangelism and one team at a site that is doing construction and street evangelism. We are all doing well, pray for God to give us strength and endurance as the temperature here remains high again tomorrow. Thank you all for your prayers!!
Oh, and when we get back we want to talk to Mrs. Judi about why our VBS doesn't have an inside moonwalk for recreation time :-))

Texas Day 6

Well today was a "free day." Some were able to sleep in a little late and then we headed to the zip line. That was a lot of fun. Everyone has a lot of good pictures and vidoe from that. We then ate lunch and had a mini birthday party for Landon before heading back out. We then rode on the kayak's and let's just say some people got wet. Then before heading to clean up for dinner, we played a little paintball!!!! After cleaning up for dinner we went to a place called tha Oasis. It was the biggest restaurant we have ever seen and it overlooked Lake Travis. The view was amazing as the sun set. Now off to bed before our last day of work tomorrow.

Texas Day 5

Well we had another good day. We built another bridge at the low ropes course, others spread some rock and mulch on the trails and others did some more painting. We were really busy today so I didn't get to take as many pictures as normal. Tomorrow is the Zip Line day and play day! Thanks for all the prayers and comments, things are going well.
