MissionCle2014 Day 3

What a full day.  We started our day off with a reminder from Matthew 20:16 “‘The last will be first, and the first will be last.'” A great reminder about Kingdom priorities.

We spent our morning dividing and conquering.  Christ Community Church did some neighborhood cleanup in Parma Heights, while PHBC fed and played with needy kids at the Parma Area Family Collaborative.  We laughed and cried with one of our teens, and her family, at the funeral of her dad.  It was a powerful celebration of his life.

After a lunch at a park, we volunteered at MedWish International.  We sorted donated medical equipment to be shipped to needy countries to save lives.

In the evening we worked on sorting the mountain of items our church donated for local food pantries.  There is so much, we’ll be working on it for a few more hours later on this week.

I’m proud of our group – they’re working hard, with cheerful and willing attitudes. I’m not hearing complaining – instead, lots of laughter. They’re also connecting well with the team from Minnesota.

Now it’s time to recharge our batteries for another day of service.
