Prep, Prep, and more Prep

Now there are a variety of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are a variety of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.  1 Corinthians 12:4-6

 

I don’t usually like to write about only the tasks that we did during the day, because they are so secondary to why we’re here.  We do our best to have a healthy combination of productivity and relational time with the kids, but today was mostly about preparing for the rest of the week.  Our team was busy at work at the children’s home accomplishing a myriad of tasks.  Here are some pics that show our work today.

The construction team was also busy with plumbing showers, and making a 3 ring toss game for community day.

Our community team was very busy sorting through the donations.  We had more donations this year than any other year.  We have a huge amount of clothing of all sizes, shoes, hygiene items, lice kits, and school supplies.

We had a great day together as a team.  Everyone young and old were able to help in many different capacities.  The kids on the team also did some babysitting for some of the younger children and Greenfield, and they were also able to help them with homework after school today.  We ended the day with a pairing up with the kids to talk about their favorite Bible stories and some of us even learned a little Spanish!
