    Touchdown

    We’ve arrived!  We had a fantastic send off in allotting the carpooling at CPC then praying for God to be our strength and protection in this trip, glorifying Him who is sending us.  Eight of us traveled at the same time, while four left later. Here are a few photos.   The staff and interns greeted us warmly. First we stopped for a bite at Miner’s Drive-Inn, the traditional place to go. Saturday evening we settled in well.   Hearts are excited to see people they served with before, and to meet new people and start to make new friends. Shiv, Namhui, Chantel and Jackson arrived safely at around 10pm.

    Drinks and Snacks for Kid’s Club

We selected cases of CapriSun, Famous Amos cookies, chewy snack bars, peanut butter crackers, Lays chips and Flamin Hot Cheetos.  For some reason these kids LOVE Flamin Hot Cheetos, even the littlest ones.  Cool!

We just want a tow.” Fundraising has not been as difficult as I thought it would be, mostly because of the generous supporters at our church and the Lord moving in the hearts of men and women. The money we are raising is for the purchase of lots of juice boxes, snacks, craft supplies, and…

    Planning and Preparing

    As the team leader it started last year when my wife and I signed up to serve at Sacred Road for the first time. For me it was the first mission on which I served multiple days. I was incredibly blessed to see how the Lord is working to reach and help our Native American neighbors in the Yakima Valley. I knew I would go again and the team leader at that time suggested that perhaps I lead the team in the following year. So here we are, a team of twelve, preparing to go serve is from July 14th returning July 21st. Leading has been easy because most of…
