This morning Team 314 was blessed with a delicious breakfast from the Wawasee church family! The many egg casseroles, sausage, ham, and fruit gave us energy to make it through our very long day. Today we were able to work alongside the Wawasee youth group to do lots of manual labor around the church. Lauren, Christian, Michael, and Jess spent their morning tearing down a fence that surrounded the church while many others painted. At the end of the day the youth room carpet was removed, many rooms were painted, and trees were cut and trimmed. Our students were able to mingle with the church family while accomplishing lots of manual labor. Kenzie was very encouraged by a great conversation with a youth leader in the church! We were greatly encouraged by the relationships that we formed with the people we were able to work alongside with Wawasee was such a great blessing to us from the delicious meals we were fed to the strong relationships that we built!
As we loaded the bus to head to Momentum Youth Conference we were very excited for the upcoming week! There were many laughs, stories, and memories that took place on our way to Marion, Indiana for Momentum Youth Conference this week. As we reunited with Team 123 there was a great amount of joy and excitement as we look forward to doing ministry with them this week! This will be our last for this week but we ask that you be praying for our students as they reconnect with their youth group and begin their ministry there. We are excited to see how God works this week!
