Several things especially blessed me. First, Dawn and Bill Arrington were a blessing. Bill is getting over bypass surgery, and Dawn had knee surgery last Monday. The doctor told her no way could she go after having the surgery. She was distraught over this. Finally on Thursday night she told Bill that if Delois Heath and Sandy Garner could both go with cancer, she could go with her knee. Bill gave a devotion on Monday that was such a testimony. They both had such a sweet spirit and so grateful that were able to get to be a part of this.
I am always amazed that so many use this week as their family vacation. As a teacher that is on summer break, I really do not sacrifice anything for this trip other than my own bed. I always hope that these people will be blessed for using their vacation time in such a way.
I was outside of the church unloading some trash, where I overheard the preacher here was talking on a cellphone to someone else. He was telling this other person that he really needed to come out to the church to see ALL these people working. He said it was a sight to see. Not only were they ALL working, they actually knew what they were doing.
Again I give God all the glory for another great mission trip. As always, I was blessed for Him letting me be apart of it.
