Medina Day 3
Hey Woodmont! Today in Medina we finished up on sorting and counting items at the commissary, which we’ve heard is a huge blessing on the people who work in the store here at Arms of Hope. We counted 900,000 diapers, over 1,000 pencils and crayons, an insane amount of canned goods, and much, much more before working over in the store. We had an incredible lunch of “Build Your Own Burgers” that included guacamole, five different kinds of cheeses, mushrooms, fresh tomatoes, and tons of other yummy toppings. We attended Kerrville Church of Christ tonight and watched the kids who attend there participate in VBS activities that they’d been practicing all week. It included some of the teenagers from Arms of Hope, so it was nice to see some familiar faces!
There has been some incredible teamwork going on here in Texas, and it’s been so evident as I’ve watched our youth group help one another sweep up mass amounts of dust and nails, spend hours calculating how much soup is in an immeasurable amount of cans, and grow seriously closer together throughout this week. It’s really tedious work that we’re doing here, but we know that we’ve been inspired to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and I’m proud to say that that’s exactly what we’re showing, and for the right reasons too. God has been ever present during our time here in Medina, and we look forward to sharing some awesome stories when we get back to Nashville! Tomorrow is our last work day and will include fajita night and Fun Night, where we’ll be playing with the kids and teens to close out the week. We’ll update you again tomorrow! Please continue to keep us in your prayers!
