Mission Trip Update -part 1

We are in day 3 of our mission and so far everything has gone very well. Most of day one was spent riding in the church bus. It was a very (very, very) long ride. But we had a lot of fun and Ed (our driver) did a great job navigating us through the mountains.

Day two and three have been work days. Our youth are working extremely hard and have accomplished a lot in a short time. We are repairing two houses for two different families. Below is a photo of some of our youth at their work site. Trust me, they didn't look that pretty at the end of the day. :)

At night we have devotions together. We read scripture, pray, and talk about our day. Last night we look at the fruit of the spirit from Galatians 5 as we talked about what it means to reflect the spirit of Christ in our mission work. Overall, our trip is going great so far and we haven't lost any youth...yet (just kidding parents). I will try to send another update later.
