Team East – Doyful, Doyful We Adore Thee – July 4th

Happy Birthday America. You don’t look a day over 1862.
The day started early for Team East. Students arrived back from host homes and half of them departed by 7:30 this morning to go do laundry at a laundromat in Hagerstown, Maryland. The laundromat was owned by a man named Doy Schneckenberger, who is apart of the Hagerstown GBC and has provided OB teams for years with free laundry at his laundromat. The students were able to have good conversation with Doy as well as other customers doing laundry. The other half of the team did manual labor and spent an hour with God.
At 11:00, the team headed to Waynesboro’s 4th of July Jubilee location and started setting up for our program. We got to do a program and present the gospel to many kids and adults in the area. After this, students helped all afternoon with kids’ games and activities. Lunch was provided by the Jubilee vendors.
After that, students returned to the church and loaded up, starting our trip to Philadelphia. Before leaving the area completely, however, we got to have dinner with Doy at a local Pizza Hut, where he generously took care of the bill. Doy was a blessing to our team, and served as a true example of a “Barnabas” figure.
The rest of the day was travel. We arrived in Philly around 10:30, and, after unloading all our stuff, the team settled in and prepared for bed. Tomorrow we will begin Streetwise, so please pray for our team as we will be involved with Urban Hope’s ministry here. We are looking forward to what God will do over the next few days!
PSA: The wifi would not work for me last night as I tried to post the blog, hence the reason there was no blog. But now it’s posted. So here ya go.
