Alyssa’s Blog – March 16th

Well, we are on the plane to Atlanta and I know that since we have to leave everyone is ready to get home. This mission trip was absolutely amazing! God did some amazing things this week and I can honestly say that it has truly changed me. Throughout the week I had been asked the same question over again and that question was what did you get from this past week. This question bothered me because I couldn’t answer right away and I thought that meant that I didn’t get anything out of it. Well, I think I know the answer now. Throughout the week our job was to paint these three houses. I went to a house with Katie, Jessa, Joseph, Addie, Jay , Haley and the Flippin Family. We were warned before we went that the girl who lived there we mean and also that her father didn’t want us there at first, so I was a little worried. As the week went on this wasn’t the case. The man joked with us the whole time and the daughter laughed at Jessa and I as we were watching Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in Portugues. God was moving in this house as joy was brought to the people who lived there. Ty told me that by us being there that we were bringing them together since they didn’t have a good relationship to begin with. It showed me how awesome our God is and how he works through us. On the way to the airport we drove by an accident, a person got hit by a car. It made me think whether they were going to heaven or hell. Right then I prayed to God that they would be ok and that I hoped they had him in their heart. God showed me something right then, he showed me that I have a passion for helping people and spreading the word. Through this week I have been praying that God will show me his plans for me and he is slowly showing them to me. This week has showed me that I want to do missions when I get older so that way  I have a peace in knowing the people I lead to Christ will be going to a better place and I wont have to feel the way I did this morning. I whole heartedly believe God wanted me on this trip so he could show me his plans for me. God changed many lives this week.
