River Bend Mission Team had a "first" today. On the road earlier than we planned. Not by much, but every little bit helps. We had a good day of driving. Uneventful.
We arrived at our overnight stop earlier than we thought we would. (about 6:00pm). Sandi H. (who happens to be my godmother) organized dinner for us. GREAT SOUP!!! And Lewis did devotions.
I know I haven't talked much about insights and some of the epiphany aspects of the mission trip yet. I will. But I have to get them together still. And I haven't had the time to do that yet. – I must have worked harder on this trip because I went to bed earlier, and fell asleep typing these before I even said much of anything besides, "we worked on houses today." – But maybe that's the point this time. Going to Crisfield, kind of like going to Minot, doesn't have much of a tourist component. The structure of the agency we worked with (did I tell you it was the Mennonite Disaster Service?) was more full- or didn't really allow for much down time that was our own. When we got back each day from the worksite, they had us scheduled until about 7:00ish, and then we did our own devotions, and by 7:30, it was dark out and seemed like time to go to bed. We worked hard. And that's what we were there to do.
And I mentioned before that we had FUN! We had fun and worked hard.
More thoughts on wrapping it up later.
I have some pictures that I took with my phone, but they are all of things you have seen before if you looked at the pictures. I will add them to Facebook (click here for River Bend's Facebook page and our Picasa site. (click here: Picasa site (pictures))
Lastly- (for now)- our next trip is scheduled for April 18th-26th. Going to Slidell, Louisiana. Let me know if you want to come or have questions. There is room on the bus.
Ok- that's all for now. We are leaving in the morning earlyish and hoping to pull back into the Twin Cities between 6:00pm and 7:00pm
