Grand Canyon Day!

POSTED BY: Patrick
Okay, just a quick update from me tonight before I let you all entertain yourselves with the writings of my peers. We’ve had a long day, but let me tell you, it’s been loads of fun. Seeing the Grand Canyon was absolutely amazing - also, on our way to one of our stops at the Canyon, we passed some woods with snow-covered ground! I doubt I have to tell you what happened next, but I will anyways: the mother of all snowball fights. It went on for over twenty minutes and much fun was had; we did have a few incidents, though. Aaron’s eye made a date with a snowball, but he’s doing fine and is only a little worse for wear. Kenneth took a fall and hurt his ankle, but he’s doing much better now, too. You should have seen the teamwork that we pulled together to help Kenneth out, getting him back to the van and then helping him out to see a fantastic view of the Canyon. Well, that’s all for me tonight. Goodnight!

Bonjour! Gisselle and Kaila reporting to you live from the van traveling through the climatically bipolar state of Arizona. Right now, at present, we are careening through the two lane roads leading up to the grandest of canyons. Currently, we have passed a total of one other vehicle. The weather is a tad bit nippy, but we’re tough cookies. We have passed a herd of bovines calmly grazing in their little pasture! On a more serious note, we arrived in Flagstaff at the hotel earlier this morning and it came to our attention that they have an indoor pool. Free breakfast with the ever-necessary waffle maker, and lastly, cable TVs! Woop woop! The schedule today for the juniors of Boca Raton Christian High School consisted of the following: prying ourselves out of bed at the ungodly hour of 4:45 AM, after thoroughly exhausting ourselves by dancing the night away with our lovely new dance partners, senior citizens! Gotta love that! We got ready, packed all our stuff into the vans, and departed to pick up the strapping young men. Following that, we proceeded to go to the “Zone,” and serve breakfast to the homeless. The women in the discipleship program treated us to a wonderful breakfast of eggs, tortillas, an assortment of baked goods, and scrumptious orange and apple juice. We all piled into the vans and porceeded to fall asleep on an over 2 and a half hour drive to Flagstaff. We dropped off our bags at the hotel, and this is where we meet up with you fine folks at home! I love you mom! Stay safe and we will see you in three days! Love always, KK and Giz! P.S. Happy Birthday to Momma Fabara!

Hey y’all! We are having an awesome time here in Arizona! The Church on the Street program has been a reqarding experience for all of us. Serving the less fortunate is a great experience, especially when we are used to getting served instead! Today we went to the Grand Canyon and it was an incredible experience. You can really get a sense of God’s creation and how small we really are. :) Cheers, Kevin

Hey Juniors, if you stayed in Flag, you must have driven right by my house. Isn't it beautiful up there? I am so glad you got to see snow. Hope all of the bumps and bruises are better! Was it the first time to see snow for some? I had no idea you were square foot functioning with senior citizens! How fun that must have been! Continuing to pray! Thank you for the updates; it is truly like getting a gift under the Christmas tree every time I look on the blog and see an update. I almost feel as if I am there! Love, Mrs. Lynch

I would have loved to have seen the snowball battle. I hope everyone has recovered from their battle wounds. Isn't the Grand Canyon majestic? It has to be one of God's most beautiful creations! I miss the 7th period US History class. I am looking forward to share time when you return. By the way, the answer from yesterday's trivia question is Sweden. I also miss those of you in my 8th period DIS. It just isn't the same without you. It is quiet.

That's so awesome that you got to see snow , seniors and square has answered my prayer that you have not plummeted down to the bottom of the canyon. lol... We are praying that you all are safe and healthy and that God makes an incredible impact on everyone . It is so great to hear how you all are so eager to serve the less fortunate and share Christ's love with them.
