Pressing On

What a day! We have faced our fair share of obstacles and hit many walls through out the day but our team is still going strong. Everyone is safe, has a great attitudes and is ready to tackle tomorrow. That is after we get some sleep!

It was an incredibly hot and humid day here. Our plan was to spend all day working on the ball field getting ready for the Angel's first home game on Saturday. However, there was a huge storm that came out of now where just as we were getting started. This forced all of us onto the shuttle in soaking wet clothes. Our students lead well and had all the baseball kids laughing and enjoying the memories we were making.

Shortly after that we discovered some equipment, wallets and other things had been stolen earlier in the day. God is faithful and we were able to freeze accounts and take care of all the details very quickly. We made it back to the hotel to get ready for dinner and shuttle died. Once again God provided and we found a great pizza place to deliver pizza and pop right to the hotel. And one of our amazing GCC staff members is going to bring the other shuttle in the morning and get the other fixed. God is good!

You would have never guessed we had had a long, hot day by the way these students talked about getting back to work tomorrow. The students want everyone to know we are doing well and not giving up. There is nothing our God can't handle and our students know it. I love that!!!!

We know one of the reason we came through today stronger is because of the amazing team of people praying back home. The entire team wants to thank you for that. Continue to keep us in your prayers. It is evident God has huge things in store.
