Day 3……..If I only had a ______!
Yummy breakfast! Morning celebration. Two honor campers from FBCA. Elliott and Margaret. Bible study. Travel to work sites and picnic lunches. Today I went to The Boys and Girls Clubs with Kate. There are actually 2 groups here. Painting, cleaning closets, and playing with children.
Yummy dinner……even if 7th grade boys only eat pizza, tater tots, and cake and ice cream!
Worship…..Laura Beth read scripture. JD was interviewed.
Emerald City Ball! We had some great costumes and saw some great costumes. Evening devotions always include highlights and lowlights from the day. Biggest low is the heat. We are spoiled mountain people! Great thing is that this is all we can come out with for lows! Lots of highs!
Day 2. Not in Kansas anymore!
Yummy breakfast! Morning celebration. Bible study. Our study was Joseph and Potiphar! FBCA kids excelled thanks to Clark Sorrells. Lunch was picnic style at the work site. I worked with Anna Kate’s group at the Salvation Army.
Wizard of Sloz rec party! Caleb got slozzed! Worship! Devotions and bed!
Our bus trip was very uneventful and that’s a good thing! Our bus driver is John. His kids went through FBCA youth group years ago. (His words, not mine!). Lunch at the mall in Winston Salem. Best perk……..lemon cookies with white chocolate chips at Firehouse Subs!
Checked into camp and got our shirts. Girls were assigned rooms in the apartments. Boys are in the dorms. Opening celebration……..awesome staff! Met with our Bible Study groups and made new friends!
We had 2 Honor Campers today!! Congrats Margaret and Elliott!!
Chaperones having fun too!!
We’ve had a great couple of first days at Passport! The youth are learning what it means to “Follow the Road” of Christ like Dorothy had to follow the Yellow Brick Road.
Today was a good, but long day of worship. It began at St. Paul’s Church where we led in worship. We left immediately after worship and moved as quickly as possible through the crowded and hilly bazaar to get to Christ Church. We led in worship again and then enjoyed a time of fellowship before walking back to the hotel. We made ourselves sandwiches and picnicked in the hotel courtyard. After a brief time of rest, we loaded the taxis and drove to the Hindustani Church Hindi is the language spoken in worship. This time, our worship leadership included a translator.
When we got back to the hotel, we changed clothes and went in small groups to enjoy dinner and the bazaar.
We’ve lead worship in 3 churches today, all lovely and special experiences. Our team has done an amazing job of connecting with the local folks. And our music is the best it has been!
All is well in Mussoorie, we’ve just been without internet access for about 36 hours. We’ve had three great days of work and lots of fun so far. Oh, and singing! Great music from lots of sources.
