Mission Trip Continued

Today was so awesome! Although I was on the food team this year I was still able to meet some people that live in Smiley Court. The nice lady that sliced our lunch meat lives there and the young lady that checked out our many buggies of groceries is from there.

The greeter at Wal-Mart almost knows me on a first name basis because I had to go there 3 times today. She just kept saying, "Your back again?" and I would just smile and say "Yep" and I will see you later this afternoon.

On my 3rd trip back from Wal-Mart there were several people taking up money at the intersection for a local church and of course I reached for my moms money can to empty it. He just thanked us and said the money was gonna do the Lord's work. I just told him that we were doing the Lord's work here too. He shook my hand and right there in the middle of the street prayed over us! It was great and funny too! You just don't see many people that would do that!

There are approximately 70 of us from 3 different churches. I sooooo missed being here last year.

Continue to remember us when you pray. Our kids are having a blast. I would show you the belly buster pics I took tonight but my Moms computer doesn't have a slot for my card. SNIFF.
