Finally, a real update!

POSTED BY: Patrick
Well, after two and a half days without an Internet connection, we’ve finally found sweet high speed wireless access in a Starbucks. The trip so far has been absolutely amazing and we’ve been doing a ton of bonding as a class. New friendships have been made and others have been strengthened, and we’ve all found out things about each other that we hadn’t known before. We had a fairly good flight over here, and we’ve been busy since. Today we got up early to go and do a morning street outreach with Church on the Street, serving breakfast to the homeless and putting on a skit and doing some songs. The past two days have been filled with several street outreaches, where we have served food and spoken with the homeless. Well, I’m going to go ahead and let everyone else post their entries, so keep us in your prayers!

Hello ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Cats and dogs! Shelby, Sammy, and Ninja! Okay, so here’s the scoop: we’re having a super blast here in Arizona meeting some new bro’s and sis’s in Christ. It’s great to help the people out who need it so badly! Yesterday we climbed a huge mountain and took some awesome pics (don’t worry mom’s and pappy’s, we’re not being too risky!) Tonight we’re going to be really cute and go square dancing! Alright, we miss you freshy’s and sophy’s, HOLLA! We love you all! Peace out.

Today was an awesome day and it is only 3:00 PM our time! We all (at least the girls) woke up about 4:45 AM to get ready. All of us are getting along great. So much so that we are having singing contests between our vans! Merideth’s van won last night (Go odds!) We are sitting here in Starbucks after a great day of outreaches, morning at the Zone, and afternoon at the Desert Cove Spanish church. Can’t wait till square dancing tonight. Just remember that we’re three hours behind you all, so think before you call. Miss you all, can’t wait to tell you stories when we get home!
P.S. Miss you Stef, Katie, and fam.

Hi. Questions are not completely answered.

Hello all! How’s everyone doing? This trip so far is awesome. It’s been so cool ministering and feeding the homeless people at the “Zone” as they call it. They have nothing. And its weird how we all complain about stuff. So yeah, we are staying at the church in the sanctuary. I slept on a pew on Saturday night and Mr. Mockler said I fell off but I don’t remember. LOL. The class is bonding so well and mingling around with people they’ve never really talked to. Well I love you all and miss you.
P.S. Hi Steff (told you I’d say hi)

Hello everyone! We are all having an awesome time here in the dry desert of Arizona. It’s great to work with all the people that we’re working with. It’s like a whole different world that people don’t know about. We have done some great hikes - a lot of us slipped and almost fell down, haha. But overall it has been awesome! Our class is all bonding. God is great and I miss you all. xo

Her all! We’ve been serving nonstop! But it’s all good as I’m sure you’ve already heard we’re so glad to not be at school right now! See ya soon, hopefully we will keep having a great time doing god’s work. :)

Hey Kellie,
We miss having you here at home, but know you are having an awesome time in Arizona. Our house has not been this quiet in a long time. The phone isn't ringing off the hook and the computer is getting a much needed rest. Take alot of pictures for the scrapbook! We are keeping all of you in our prayers and so is the staff at BRCC. Stay safe and keep looking up. God is watching over you. And keep on sharing God's love to all.
Love, Mom and Dad

How wonderful to hear from our juniors! Your words bring back such good memories from past mission trips out there! Please, please, please write tomorrow and tell us how the square dancing, er, I mean square foot functioning went! School was strange today without you! Are you guys enjoying some spicy Mexican food? Make sure to have an authentic, not gringoized, Navajo taco while you're out there! You can get a decent one at the Grand Canyon! Love you - continuing to pray! Mrs. Lynch P.S. Hey Gayle!!!!!

Thank goodness for Starbucks!!! I'll have a tall Caramel Machiotto, please! Seriously, it is great to read your blogs. Glad to hear about all of the bonding. I am sure you will have some interesting stories of service when you return. I hope someone is taking pictures to show us later. We all want to hear about how the square dancing went. I hope y'all packed your cowboy hats and boots. I used to square dance all the time in Pennsylvania. "Swing your partner round and round." Trivia Question for the day: During World War II, Germany occupied all these countries except: Norway, France, Denmark, The Netherlands, Sweden. Over and Out! Junkyard Dog

I hate to tell you this, Mrs. Seely, but are you sure that square dancing, I mean square foot functioning requires boots and hats? I thought it was more of the Lil Abner look. We'll discuss this later! :) Mrs. Lynch
