Florida – July 9 Paint No Mountain High Enough To Keep Us From Getting To Fort Myers

The boys got up early this morning to finish painting the church and youth center. When the girls arrived from host homes, we quickly cleaned up and restored the sleeping rooms back to their original functioning set-ups. By 9am we left Brooksville and started on our way to Fort Myers. After a quick stop at McDonald’s, we traveled just a minute down the road to the Grace Brethren Church. Despite the strong storms all around the area, not a...

Today’s blog brought to you by Marena, Jeremy, Caner and (mostly) Josh Fulmer!

Florida – July 4 What Do You Call Miracles Involving Flames? Fire Works!

First of all, I apologize fourth the terrible puns today. Please don’t flag this post as spam! We’re proud to say we started things right this morning – dedicating the day to the Lord and celebrating the holiday as a team. Hour with God was spent on the beach, and many of the students had some awesome experiences with God teaching them new things (just like we asked for prayer over yesterday!). We spent the rest of the...
