Mission Trip to Michigan!!

At 3:00 AM Chad and I sent Morgan and Madyson off on a week long youth mission trip to Jackson, Michigan. After waiting 14 long hours to hear from them they finally called to let us know they arrived safely. They have been so excited about this big adventure and we've been thrilled for them but this morning at 2:50 I realized that Jackson is a LONG ways away!! For a split second I didn't want to send my kids that far away. Then...I took a minute to remember WHY they were going and it blessed my heart to know that my 11 and 12 year old girls are going so far away from home just so they can serve others and share the love of Christ. Pray for Morgan and Madyson this week and the 22 others that went to Michigan. They will be painting, reroofing homes, and any other clean up project that needs to be done. They will also be doing some backyard Bible clubs and having worship with other youth groups at night that are there from all over the USA. I'll update and post pictures when the girls return!
