And then the giggles set in.
We woke up and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast – prepped by several of our very own. Thank you breakfast team.
We had devotional time – reading some passages where folks but God ahead of their own fears. Then it was time to split into our teams for our work sites.
And of course made some friends as we did.
The middle school group got to plan and lead something called kid’s club – a VBS like time in a park with about 20 or so local kids. Of course, before we could play with kids, we had to get energized ourselves. Hence, the Camel Dance energizer. Now some Baptists in Minnesota know the joy of dancing to Istanbul.
Meeting the the kids was great – we did walking pick ups of some and others were already at the park when we arrived. We played games, taught a bible story, did crafts, read books, and just spent good time being their buddies.
After a good day’s work (and truly, let me just say that it was beautiful watching our kids interact with the little ones), we showered and then came back to base camp. Dinner – Taco Night! – and then a treat – Powwow dancing.
We got to try a little bit too – just some basic stepping so no one got injured.
We had Club and church time and my friends, there was massive amounts of silliness.
We laughed so hard, many of us were crying at the end of the evening!
Another blessed day from God!
