CHICAGO!!!

The Lord has allowed me to attend and be part of our church's youth mission trip!

Ellie and I just traveled 13+ hours on a school bus with 29 other kids and 3 other sponsors to Chicago, Illinois to the Inner City.  Here we are on this first morning at Inner City,

Waiting on kids to arrive!

and we're ready to love on some little people!  
We will have LOTS of children from Chicago ages 5-13 come to go through the Bible School program our church brought.  Can't wait to see what the Lord will do on this first day! 

God has already blessed my socks off by meeting THE most precious janitor! 

Thad works hard to keep the facilities clean!

 Thad loves our Heavenly Father and you can see The Lord shine through him the moment he says "hello", and he sure does like his coffee and makes sure everyone gets their daily caffeine!

Here are some more group pics:

Getting ready for crafts

Each of these kids are such servants!  Always asking what they can do to help!
We are a blessed church!
They are such servants that 3 of them are celebrating their birthdays in Chicago, away from home and family!  Today is Brandon's 18th birthday!  Happy birthday!!

God is so good!  I am so blessed He has allowed me to be here...with my daughter, in this moment He had set apart for us before the foundation of the world in Chicago, Illinois. 


"Wait on the Lord; Be strong, and let thy heart take courage; 
Yea, wait thou for Jehovah." Psalm 27:14
