We made it!
Eleven hours, a handful of pitstops, and a few tolls and potholes later, and we have arrived in Sisseton, SD for our week of service, worship, and fellowship.
While here in Sisseton, we will be staying at Family Life Assembly of God, a delightful church on the south side of town. The boys are sprawled out in the basement, and the girls are filling classrooms on the main level. After arriving and unpacking, the cook team fed us pizza and ice cream – a foretaste of many delightful meals to come, undoubtedly. After some rules and regulations, the students went off to play some games – as if a day of riding in a van wasn’t exhausting enough. The day ended with worship in the Sanctuary, song and scripture and a short message, introducing the theme verse for the week, “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
We are looking forward to tomorrow, as students will travel to their work sites and begin work! Thank you to those who made this trip possible, and continued thanks for those praying for us! God has brought us here, and we trust he will continue his good work in and among and through us.
