Today we had a really good start to the mission trip. I was part of a work group that helped work on 2 houses for families in need. The family that lived at the first home had two sons and a daughter. We were setting up a shelf and a rail so the boys could hang their clothes up instead of having them in a little plastic box. Another thing we helped do was set up a little shelf for their pots and pans since they where in a corner stacked on top of each other. At the other home there was a Mom, grandfather and two boys. We painted the outside of their house and I helped put insulation in a room that had no insulation and was very hot. The walls had nails and bits of wood poking out everywhere so that made me feel really good to help out in any way I could. Seeing family’s like this makes me feel very lucky to have what I have. I really think today was a good start.

Today on the mission trip, we started off the day with a delicious breakfast. Mmm, bagels, fruits, and cereal. Then, we did our first full day of VBS for these lovely kids. I have always loved kids, but this trip has shown me even more about them. The inner sillies they have. After that, we all headed to Main Event for some games and pizza. Chick-fil-a was the end to our busy day followed by share time in family groups. I LOVE THE JHMT 2018!!!
