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...

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...

Team East – Teek on Fleek: The Birthday Blog – July 2nd

Happy Birthday TK! I felt it good to preface my post with a birthday shoutout to our senior leader.

Here’s what we did today: 8:30 – Students showed up and helped with York GBC’s yard sale. 9:00 – Students had quiet time...

Team East – You've Seen One, You've Seen theMALL – July 1st

Some days are harder than others. Today was a tough day. But it was tough in good ways! This morning, after a short night of sleep for the guys, girls showed up at the church and all the students got to have some quiet time with the Lord. After about a half hour, the youth group students arrived and everyone gathered for a short worship time led by one of the CCC girls and then a teaching time led by TK on the topic of responsibility. Lunch was...

Team East – The York in the Road – June 30th

Traveling. That’s what Team East was up to today. After waking in Martinsburg, the team quickly loaded up and was on the road for the trip to York, PA. While on the bus, students were given a chance to spend some time with the Lord… and also catch up on some sleep. For lunch, we stopped at McDonald’s for a half hour. When the team got back on the bus, students were able to share about conversations they had with people in the...

Team East – Truth or Dairy – June 29th

Team East – Truth or Dairy – June 29th

It’s hard to believe that we are mid-way through tour. Maybe because it’s only been a week and a half. But almost everyone is in a stupor over how quickly our tour has progressed. Mid-tour means mid-tour evaluations. After being dropped off at the church and getting some breakfast, students got to hear from Andrea about integrity. This transitioned into mid-tour evaluations, where each student was able to meet with his or her...
