Day 5 - Thursday, August 2

Dear Friends and Family,


We got energy for the day through breakfast prepared by Isaiah, Gabe, and Graziella. Breakfast consisted of pancakes, sausage and other breakfast items.


We went over Luke 15:11-32 - the prodigal son - for our 45 minute devotion time. After packing our work supplies onto the van we went to the work site. We finished our flooring, which has been one of the biggest and most time consuming projects all week. We also finished multiple smaller tasks. During lunch, one of our LeaderTreks leaders shared her testimony. After lunch we finished the wall paneling in the outreach center.  


Today we also had our Day 2 VBS; it was the last one of the week. Today, we did a run through of our Jonah and the whale story and then we began to start the VBS. We had the sweetest kids who went to a local church down the street and have been coming for the past five weeks. Everything went smoothly and we had a successful VBS.


We came back to God’s Closet to a meal of parmesan chicken and pasta, prepared by Charlotte, Jacob, and Madelyn. After dinner we ended the day with team time, which was a very good spiritual conversation.


Overall this day was a huge success and benefitted us greatly!
