We Live To Serve

We got a chance to go with the family and the Youth group to Medshare to serve again.  Medshare is a great organization that helps to collect medial surplus from hospitals and clinics and send them to third world countries where they are greatly needed.  We were all a bit tired from the drive in movie with the youth the night before... but we had fun and work hard.

I loved the smiles the kids had while we worked.  And the discussions about the materials.  There is a joy in serving.. and giving of ones time.  It is one way we love Christ by giving to the "least of these".  And that is something I pray my kids learn and live.

Ja Making Me Crazy

This year Matthew and I got a chance to go to the Jamaica Mission trip together. This trip too us to the CCCD in Kingston.  This is a Christian school for the deaf.  This mission trip to the CCCD is a lot of hard work but also a lot of fun.  The mornings are usually filled with construction and painting of various kinds.  Then after 3 the kids are let out and we spend the little remaining energy on the kids with crafts and games.
