Day Three and Four…

Hey everyone! Your students are loving the comments! Thank you so much! Check the comment section from yesterdays post and find the link to a flicker account with updated photos!

We had a blast yesterday painting and building and loving on the people of the houses we’re working on…

Last night was an amazing experience for some of the students. God really came through in a cool way during worship. I hope some of them tell you about it.

Students from Northwest will have a cool story to tell about a kid named Cory. Ask them about it!

We’re getting geared up for a half day of work and then we’ll come back, pack up and head home. We miss you all and can’t wait to see you!

Leave us some love in the comments!

Day 1 and 2…

Hello parents and friends! We apologize for the delay in posting… We have not been able to find internet access! I’m writing this update from my blackberry phone, so sorry if its a bit short!

We arrived safely and worked HARD yesterday! Everyone is a bit sore from shoveling gravel or nailing boards together to build a deck… Everyone is a bit sun-kissed as well since we’ve had beautiful weather!

We’re expecting another great day today!

Everyone is doing great and having fun!

Check again tomorrow morning and I will update about today!

Getting geared up…

We leave in three days!  Wednesday, March 19th, 100 students will be meeting at the South Oklahoma City campus loading 2 charter busses bound for Eureka Springs, Arkansas…

We’re excited to serve the community of Eureka Springs by cleaning and repairing the homes of some lower income families.  Pray for our safety on the bus ride up and as we work throughout the week.
