Team East – Wayne's(boro) World – July 3rd

Full disclosure. I almost forgot I was supposed to write a blog today. Oops.
Sundays are always fun for Operation Barnabas. This morning, Team East put on the Sunday service for York GBC. This service included a handful of programming, as well as some good individual moments. Cora got to play piano at the beginning of the service, Tessa got to throw a frisbee in church (as apart of her object lesson that she shared), and Josh was able to share his devotional. The congregation participated in worship and was very warm towards our students.
After the service, the church hosted a lunch where we were able to eat and interact with the congregation. This was a nice time of mingling as students were able to connect with York GBC attenders one last time before traveling. Once finished with lunch, students said goodbye and we loaded up on the bus and began our journey to Waynesboro, PA.
Upon arriving, most our students were sent out to canvass neighborhoods for the church’s upcoming Vacation Bible School. At the same time, Josh, Nick, Caleb L., Caleb H., and Ryan went and helped set up for the town’s holiday celebration that will be taking place tomorrow. Some members of the church then prepared dinner for our team, where the guys were picked up for host homes. The girls stayed back at the church for a girl’s night, complete with root beer floats, ice cream sundaes, and a teaching time on purity.
Tomorrow is our last travel day before arriving at Urban Hope. We will also be serving at the town’s Summer Jubilee and putting on a program. Pray for us that the weather would be good for this event, and that our team would push through tiredness.
