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

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...

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...

Team Buckeye: Day 6- Enjoy the Pics

Marion Grace church has been such a huge blessing to us and have been like another set of grandparents to us all. So today we decided to bless them by doing manual labor. Some of the students painted another house which turned out to be great! Others scraped paint off the walls, cleaned the bathrooms in the church and also helped make signs for their VBS which they will be doing shortly. Before heading out to the road, we had a fabulous lunch...

Team East – I Don't Have A Clever Title But Hey We Worked Today – June 28th

Today in a word: long. No but for real. Today was a pretty good day for Team East! As students arrived here from host homes this morning, they entered into an hour with God. After this, TK taught the team about what it means to live a life on mission. This was pretty impactful for the students, as many learned about what it means to be fully following Christ. This transitioned into students meeting with their discipleship groups, where they...

Team East – A Poem for Team East – June 27

Roses are red. Violets are blue. Team East works hard. How about you? In Meyersdale we awoke this morn; wanting more sleep left us torn. The students arrived, we prepared to drive – But not before getting to work. We split up all of our troops; divided them into three groups. Laundry for one, as for two begun Some labor that involved horse poop. Students helped clean some tables; as others cleaned up some stables. When all was finished,...

Team Buckeye- Day 5: For Christ We Strive

If any of you have ever read the book “The Five Love Languages” you may have noticed that on the last page is an extra love language- sleep.  Did you turn there yet? Okay okay I fibbed, it isn’t a love language but something that us OB-ers sure love to do and that we did this morning. Til 10. I think in order to truly be effective in any task or job that we do, we need to be filled up with food, sleep, and Jesus. The kids were able to have an...
