Go Ye Therefore… July 25, 2011

We’ve come to it… the last day of Operation Barnabas for the Peninsula team.  We began our last day by waking up at nine to an hour with God and a nice breakfast prepared by us leaders… at least… I think it was pretty nice; pancakes, bacon, and fruit beats pop tarts any day in my book. After breakfast, our team got in their swimsuits and headed out to a member of Grace Church’s congregations house to swim in their...

These Are Some Quality Apples! – July 21, 2011
