Okay let’s give this a shot.
I sat for over an hour this morning staring at my screen, trying to come up with a way to start this bad boy. I haven’t been in a very positive headspace the last few days, and trying to write has been a bit of a challenge. But, I’m adamant on getting this done now. Plus. I think a few people might fly down and kick my butt if I didn’t :P
Last week was incredible. Both Aldergrove and Westside got their pretty quickly, and both did awesome jobs! I only got to work on site with Westside, but I was definitely impressed. They all worked together so well, always knowing what they needed to be doing.
I got to take about eight people from Westside’s team to a daycare a couple of blocks away from their build and helped them with their vbs crafts and games. It was really cool being able to lead them and watch them play with dozens of little kids!
This week, we’ve got a group of fifteen people (so different from last weeks 40+!!) from Calvary Baptist Church in Coquitlam. They are seriously rocking. The house is just about finished already, paint and all! All of these groups are seriously blowing my mind. I took a bunch of them to the same daycare yesterday for their vbs. I adore coming back each week and seeing the same little faces. I am so in love with some of those kids, and have definitely planned on hiding a couple of them in my suitcase and taking them home with me haha :)
Even with all of the negativity I’ve been feeling, I still know that God is moving in this community. I just need to keep my eyes on Him and keep remembering that I’m down here to serve Him and show His love.
I lay me down, I’m not my own. I belong to You alone.
