Where I stayed
The Rock

and I thoroughly believe that everyone who accompanied us on this trip is forever, and will be forever amazed at our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ. Yet not only are we amazed, but we are forever changed. We will never be the same again. The relationships we established that created bonds of trust and friendship that will not break are in plain sight. There is no question that we have benefited from this trip, and with a little over 15 hours left here at The Rock, none of us want to leave, yet we know that there is a place we must return to, there are lives to be changed and memories to be made—just like we have done here in these past few days.

               And once again the day began with a yummy breakfast and then off to work! Everyone had the same jobs as yesterday—the painters got to use the color Pepper Red!—except for my group, we were sent to degrease the stove: a very nasty, dirty, grimy, old, salvaged stove. However in the process we met an amazing man named Mr Phil who helped us get the job done, and those of us working on it got to know each other better.

                We were then blessed with a delicious dinner made by Purdeep, and Evelyn received her Curry she's been craving all week, and then joined together for circle time. Circle time is ver y difficult to describe because there is nothing for me to compare it to yet it is a time when we are able to gather together and delve into God’s words and each other’s hearts, and the outcome is miraculous. After the main discussion Pastor Randy allowed Rachel (piano & voice), Evelyn (voice), Elizabeth (voice & sign), Dave (harmonica) to lead a little worship with a few songs, one thing that us three girls have missed while being here at The Rock, and we were given the opportunity to share our worship with everyone, such an amazing and uplifting experience.

                Tomorrow we begin with, once again, an early morning (I’m sure) a yummy breakfast, and then to complete some of our jobs before heading off to the airport and flying home. Thank you to everyone who took the time to read this blog and send prayers our way, our experience has been marvelous and we will see you all when we return home.
