We worked at the home finishing the painting for about three hours this morning until rain moved in and we had to call the job complete. In the past three days, we painted the exterior of the entire house, mowed the lawn, trimmed a tree in the backyard, and helped the home owner bring some items from her basement. We rushed this morning when we saw rain moving in to get it all done.
One of the most enjoyable moments was praying with and for the home owner. We wanted to make sure she knew she was loved and that we were united through God. She was a wonderful, loving woman.
After cleaning up and eating lunch we headed out for the rest of the day. We shopped at the Galleria Mall before heading downtown to the arch which proved to be a test to my patience. I knew there was a Cardinals game happening but I didn't anticipate the traffic and the fact that the lots wouldn't allow me to park our big extended rental van in their lots. We parked quite a ways away finally (after being stuck in traffice for about an hour) in an old empty lot and walked.
Tomorrow's agenda is breakfast, closing worship, Six Flags and home!
Thank you God for this wonderful week. It's been a joy to see God working through our OPCC kids as well as all th kids here at Disciples Summer Mission.
