Hi! My name is Rylie York, and I am a member of the Tracy California Mission Team this week. I am a junior, and this is my first Mission Trip to California, so I am excited to see what the Lord has in store for me and this wonderful team. Yesterday evening (Thursday March 9th) the majority of our team arrived at FBG at 5:15 to head to the airport by 5:30. I say “majority” of our team, because I planned to arrive at the church at 5:00 but remembered that I left an AP English Assignment at my house and had to run home and get it. Needless to say, the Lord provided clear roads and patience in order to make it back to the church in time & I made it on the vans to head to the airport. In the moment, this was a stressful time, but looking back on it now, I know that God had it in his hands and I can even laugh a little. We arrived at the San Jose airport around 11:00 pm California time. We then gathered our luggage and headed for the vans. On the drive to Tracy and Southlands Church I was amazed by the hilly landscape of California. Having never been to California, I didn’t know what to expect and I love the green landscape of beauty. This morning (Friday March 10th), we have eaten our breakfast, had a long night’s sleep, and we are ready to serve the Lord with our hands and our hearts. Thank you for reading, and remember to Love God and Love People today.
