The comment was made in innocence, and yet for us it made me want to share how blessed we are with groups. Plus I have more fun pics of our last group I have taken awhile to post.
Without groups we would not have the school, church and house we live in...as it was groups that built them by hand mixing them with buckets of concrete. Without groups we would miss out on the encouragement and passion you bring and share as you get excited and join in the work here. Without groups we are hard pressed to get back to your church thank them for support and show pictures of the work they support here. Without groups it takes longer to see projects through as we have only a few hands working each day, so even digging dirt for a wall makes it possible to get the school walls retained better and reinforced more quickly and less cost here since projects are finished in days that over months. Without groups our current students miss the insight and friendships you provide as you interact here.
We know you work so hard to raise lots of money to come, work hard while here giving up vacation time, and are exhausted when you leave....but we would hate to be without groups. Thanks for coming.
More fun at Kids Club...how excited we are to expand and offer more sessions in the fall. Plus Maddie is a professional dancer, so we are going to be able to offer tap, jazz, and ballet to the community for kids....what a outreach as we teach them about Christ!
Hilarious skits by the youth at CCC.
Big John directing.
One of the classes offered by the youth at the retreat. I think this was the sports class.
Our retreat t-shirts...we have extras...so if you are interested they are only $15 for you to own one.
