"There's no 'P' in our pool!" – Team Ohio – July 20th, 2015

Team Ohio- July 20th

This beautiful monday morning started with Team Ohio eating a delicious home-cooked breakfast of eggs, biscuits, and sausage and gravy. Manual labor followed, and everyone split into groups to clean tables, clean out gutters, help clean out and organize the youth closet, and also do some weeding around the church.

We hopped on the bus and headed to Lakeland Christian Academy to take showers before getting a quick lunch at Burger King. We headed back to the church to finish out the afternoon with an hour with God. Around 5:30, the youth group arrived at the church, and we got on our individual buses and headed to a church members’ house for a pool party. They served hot dogs, chips, and ice cream, and the students had an opportunity to swim, play corn hole, play spikeball, or just talk. We were even able to celebrate Esther’s birthday with cupcakes which happened to fall on the 15th while we were at Momentum.

We ended the evening back at the church where Shawn and Alex talked about what love is. The boys then had an opportunity to sit down with the girl leaders: Meredith, Nicole, and Alex while the girls had an opportunity to meet with the male leaders: Shawn and Sam. Both groups were able to ask whatever questions they would like, and both groups ended up having great conversations.

Please pray for our bus drive to Berne, Indiana which is our last and final stop as a team before heading to debriefing. Pray also that the students will be focused on home and how they want life to look like when they return.

Goodnight from Team Ohio and God Bless!
