Ooooooooooooklahoma! Where the…well, where there is no wind, currently. Not even much of a breeze.
We made good time to Oklahoma, stopping at In-and-Out—yum—as we went through Dallas, and arrived in Hugo around 5ish. We sorted our stuff into the cabins and started a highly entertaining game of Ultimate Frisbee.
The sophomores settled down to working on their ministry for Wednesday night. We will be working with the children and youth of a local church, so have divided into two groups to make plans. The secondary group will talk about the distractions that keep us from God; the elementary group has decided to share the story about Jesus walking on the water and our all-time favorite ministry song: “The Sea of Galilee.”
Besides that, there was tortellini to be had, spoons to be played, unexpected face painting to be done (several of our girls ended up with whiskers by the end of the night), and a soccer ball to be kicked into the lake, in a moment of…over-enthusiasm. Miss Bev and Mr. Wilson gave the students a little personal background and challenged them to push beyond their comfort zone this week to serve God however He asks, and then we were off to reading the story of Gideon (Judges 6-8), showers, and bed. Mrs. Lambert pulled in around 11:30pm (and there was much rejoicing in the land).
Please pray for us as we work with Little Dixie today. We believe God will do, already is doing, mighty things on this trip, but your prayer helps make it possible.
