We had another great day of serving Tejas! We are back in the tunnel of lights again. Doing some repair and then starting a second strand (something different from last year) Our kids are so meticulous it is impressive.
Again, we work so fast they are constantly scrambling to get the next thing ready for our kids to do. Summit 8th grade class is a blessing!
The group that is working on the cotton ball strands (yikes) have diligently been plodding along. Finally, we decided to kind of start over with the remaining pile. We got supplies and just cut out the hundreds of knots and we’re re-stringing. Work smarter not harder.
Mrs. Lundin joined us today so after lunch we had a surprise birthday party, or rather parties! We filled 3 piñatas for Mrs. Lundin, Blake and Anna! It was a fun time!
Mr. Dare also joined us for dinner and then gave the final devotional at the campfire! We took our lists of disappointments and burned them up asking God to help us learn to trust him in each and every situation. He’s a good good father … that’s who He is … and we are loved by him … that’s who we are!
Holiday times can be fun and holiday times can be NOT fun! We have all kinds of family dynamics, don’t we? I pray that whatever your circumstances are that you will allow God’s tender love for you to bless you, heal you, help you to extend grace to others so they will be drawn to the ‘Jesus’ in you! May we strive to glorify God in every situation we find ourselves in.
We have a half day tomorrow to get as much done for Tejas as we can.
Again, thank you for allowing your student to join us on this trip. It has been fun working side by side!
We will be at the campus between 3:00 – 3:00pm tomorrow afternoon. We will see you then!
Have a great Thanksgiving week!
