We have been blessed this week with a Spring Break group from Lancaster Bible College, Lancaster PA. Can I tell you – this group “complained” that they had three days of not WORKing on the front end of their mission trip!
What WORK they did once they got started. I think our TO DO list has diminished by 70%. Some things are just in need of skilled electricians and plumbers, eh?
But the paint has gone on. White trim that was overlooked last spring is now white for real and a classroom that had last been painted in 2005 was painted a lovely shade of lavender.
Some of the team are Phys. Ed. majors and they
tortured us, I mean treated us with love and care and WORK OUTS and even made us our own 15 minute work out DVD! We did it on Monday for the first time and today, everyone is finally NOT stiff so we will have another go at it tomorrow.
The group was not afraid to sing at two churches. They were not afraid to go onto the roof. They were not afraid to tutor Deaf kids. They were great examples of what it means to be a Joshua 1:9 disciple of Christ:
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
