Home sweet home!! All 7 families have made it home safely - thank you so much for your prayers for safe travels!!!
The 5 families that were still at New Song had the privilege of serving one more time in a special way this morning when a man who was having a rough time came into the church looking for some help. New Song doesn't keep any money on hand, so our team was able to bless him with some money and all of our snack food that hadn't been eaten this week! He and his wife and their 3 kids had just moved into the area and were living in a motel, trying to find affordable housing, while also awaiting his deployment to Afghanistan. We got to pray with him and were grateful that God had him come there on the day we were there! Please join us in praying for Brian and his family, that they would find a home, be able to provide for their family, and that they might get connected at New Song, or another area church.
Our kiddos also got to perform the infamous "I Came To Party" VBS song for the congregation during this morning's service - and yes we introduced New Song to worship flossing ;) Dan Onder read the (lengthy!) scripture passage like a pro, and Matt and Rachel Queen got to join the praise team for the morning. It was a great ending to our week of serving. And if you're driving towards Aurora, IL anytime soon, keep an eye out for our Faith Family Mission Trip ROCKS!!!
We are so blessed to be able to serve with our families this week. We hope to continue Jesus' command to love one another in ALL we do.
