Chatt 2016 Update #3!

June 30, 2016

We are still going strong! Yesterday I had the chance to go around to four of the nine different work sites that our students were on, and I was blown away by their service! It is HOT and these jobs are by no means easy, yet everyone was working together without complaining. I'm so proud of them!

After the work day was over yesterday, everyone came back and hung out at camp. A few people went to the lake, but most played an intense game of volleyball and just enjoyed each other's company. We had spaghetti for dinner and then had our evening worship service. I love seeing our students worship together, and with other churches. It is seriously one of my favorite parts of my job!

After dinner, we had family time, and it was AWESOME. Margaret and I tricked the students into thinking they were in trouble, which ended in a surprise trip to Sonic! I will tell you that this is something I have done every year I've been here, and they STILL fall for it! Every. Year. When will they learn :)

This morning we woke up and had our quiet time, and then breakfast. After that we gathered for our morning worship session. I spoke on what it means to love your neighbor as yourself. I reminded them that Jesus says people will know we are Christians by our love, and so we need to take this commandment seriously and choose to love anyone and everyone that God puts in our path. Because it is our responsibility to reflect the love of Christ to all.

Students just left to go to their worksites! I am going to try to visit all the sites I didn't get to yesterday...I'll take lots of photos! It's going to be another great day!
