mission team

DH got up early Saturday morning to see the mission team off at 5:00.

mission team

This is the third team our church has sent this year. In January, we went to New Orleans, Louisiana, and had the privilege of drywalling Gloria’s home. Earlier this month, a team went to Atlanta, Georgia, to aid in community assistance, and this team is going to Fairmont, West Virginia, to roof two homes for those in need. At least one of these young people has made all three mission trips and several have made two trips. I believe this is the 13th year we have sent a team to Fairmont.

DD#1 joined them in Virginia, after her summer of working in a girls’ camp in New York. We won’t see her until October, when we go east for DS#1’s wedding.

As God brings them to mind, please pray for the mission team as they work this week, sharing God’s love with others. Pray for safety, for spiritual growth, and for strength to do the work.

    It was our 15th…I was surprised at that! Bethel is the only church to go to W. Va every year. We loved your DD….all the girls were so glad to see her. She read us a great bed time story one night. She is a sweetie!
