Mission: Rockwood 2009

The mission trip is in the books…It was an awesome week!  I was pretty nervous about the week.  Not knowing all of what we would do, where we would go, etc, etc…I knew that God is in control and all would work out and it did.

About a month before we left one of the leaders from Rockwood Ministries e-mailed me and told me they were only averaging 5-7 people on Sunday Afternoons at there service and didn’t know if we would still want to come.  Without hesitation I e-mailed them back and said we would come if they only had one person coming.  Sunday (the 12th) they had 3 children.  We started on Monday with 9 kids.  By the end of the week we had 22 different kids that had come to the VBS!  It was a great experience for everyone involved.

We also helped paint the mission center during the day!  I was proud of everyone who went with us.  I was especially proud of the students and kids who went.  They really stepped up big time! 

We’re already talking about going up at Christmas again and doing a Christmas Party and talking about in what ways we can improve when we go back next summer!
