So I have been away for awhile, but I have a really great excuse this time!
A couple of weeks ago, I was really having a tough time. Work had been crazy busy. We were still waiting for our bedding so we can start our nursery (grrrr). My to do list is not getting any shorter .With Brian being a youth minister, that puts him gone about 30 days during the summer, and I was missing him. And not to mention the thought of Tate not being here. Needless to say, I was feeling anxious, overwhelmed, tired, and sad.
So we decided that it would be worth it to sacrifice some of the days I have been saving to go on the Sr. High mission trip with the youth.
I am so glad that I did.
We took about 45 people to an intercity church in St. Louis Missouri to put on a VBS, a basketball camp, and just serve the church and community. We cleaned, sweated, laughed, worshiped, cried, made new friends, and were blessed beyond belief. It was so wonderful! God was everywhere! Here are a few pictures from the week.
