Team Buckeye- Day 12: The Parades Went Well

Happy 4th of July everyone!!! I hope that it has been a great day for you filled with food, fireworks, family time,   patriotic clothing and parades. Speaking of parades, we actually had the chance to be apart of two parades today. One was with Movement Church who we visited last week and the other one was with Grace Polaris Church. The weather didn’t look so promising in the beginning when we went with Movement Church, and even later when we...

Team Buckeye- Day 11: A Little Taste of Heaven

Sunday morning at Grace Polaris Church began as the students arrived refreshed from a second night in host homes. We jumped right into warming ourselves up by fine tuning our speech choir, paired up for prayer, and then began meeting and mingling with the people of Grace as we awaited the start of the worship service.  We sang, we acted, we puppeted, and we worshiped. Our pantomime, “If We’re Honest,” involves the entire team as they bring...

We worked with kids that were either mentally disabled or physically disabled.  We were split up into groups and switched doing...

Team Buckeye- Day 8: Was Great!

What a refreshing day for Team Buckeye! We ended our time at Grace Church of Powell with a delicious pancake breakfast made by the wonderful ladies who fed us so well during our stay.  The leaders surprised the group by having them wear comfortable shoes and pack water bottles and Bibles and get on the bus.  We planned to take them to Hocking Hills- a gorgeous state park in Central Ohio.  While on the road, we had the opportunity to stop our...

Team Buckeye- Day 7: The Bible is our weapon

Powell Grace has been good to us guys, like real good. We haven’t had the chance to get close with fast food while we were here because they made sure that the food was from Paula Deen’s kitchen herself.  After taking showers from the YMCA and eating breakfast, we all had an hour alone with God. The discussions after were truly great and it had been great to see that some of the students have their own bible reading plan so they can try and...
