I returned from the mission field of Appalachia last night. I am exhausted, but it was worth it. God did a great work through our team out there. We remodeled the outside of a house for an old couple. That was quite the task. There were tons of wasps to fight through. We went through 16 cans of wasp spray and could have used 4 more! Two of the team members got stung. :(
This is a picture of one couple whom we were helping. :)
We also did some work for an older pastor cutting trees and splitting wood.
This trip was very good. Our team worked extremely well together. I felt so much love. The guys did a great job finding us girls stuff to do and not just doing it themselves. I learned that I take for granted how hard my husband works as a roofer. It was great to see the group come together and work for God like the church should do always. It was great to see how many godly men we have in our church we can look to. It was also great to see the godly women we have be supportive and helping. God really did a work in my heart there. I can't articulate everything He spoke to my heart about. One thing was God changed the way I had been thinking about something for the last 14 yrs. Such a blessing! We also got to be part of a baptism there!
I can't describe the blessing this trip was. I'm so glad I went. Now I'm looking forward to going to Venezuela in October. I'm excited to see what God has in store. :)
