June 28th Friday
As the week ends and we prepare to head home, a wave of humbleness falls over us. We are exceedingly grateful for what we have, but mostly for the opportunity to serve. We have met some great people, grown as a community, and have a better understanding of what it means to be servants.

Yesterday was the second to last day of work. We’re tired. We’re wiped. We hurt. But in our weakness, Jesus is our strength. We are mentally prepared to finished the job. We prayed this morning for renewed strength and energy to finish strong. We ask that you join us in that prayer. We want to “finish the race.”
