Site 2

This trip was a really moving experience for me. It was a great way to continue God's mission and grow closer to people. At our site we painted a house, barn, and shed for Vaughn and her son who is a military veteran. Seeing the smiles on their faces made the tiring work well worth it. This week I went beyond my own wants and needs to help those who really needed it. Another big part of the trip for me was the witness talks. Hearing people's own personal experiences and being able to relate to that helped resolve a lot of things I had been going through. I realized that God does care and he's listening. In the words of our youth group leader Frank Connell, "When you feel lost or alone, just know that we are not home yet."
