Day 3

Posted by: Norah
Traveling to an area known for its aridity, precipitation was the least of our worries. Unfortunately, today we beat the odds and had uncanny amounts of rain, sleet and hail. The precipitation was tolerable; however, the bitter cold was not.
This morning, we went to many neighborhoods inviting them to the Easter services at Phoenix First Assembly of God. As we canvassed the neighborhoods, we prayed that the church will reap the benefits of our labor.
Afterwards, we had lunch at the Dream Center. We then had much needed time to rest and prepare ourselves for our upcoming adventures.
After our 4 pm dinner, we left for a children’s outreach. They were teaching the children about the Ten Commandments. Sadly, after only 25 minutes we were rained out. The children ran to cover when the rain, sleet and a little hail scared them away.
Soon we will all take part in the Rescue Project, an outreach to girls caught in the sex trafficking industry. We are anxious to see how God will use us tonight! We’ll let you know tomorrow. . .

You all should feel blessed with the cold weather. Arizona can be awful in the late spring. I am praying for you all each day. Thanks for sharing your adventures. Norah is a beautiful writer.

Praying you will each grow in love and respect for one another as the body of Christ! Serving together can strengthen your unity. The third floor is eerily quiet without you! Looking forward to your return.
Love and prayers always!

Hi Juniors!
"Aridity"...I like the word, Norah. But I got the message! You are all in my prayers this evening. May the rest of your trip continue to build memories in your hearts and open them further to God's work with all people. I haven't had a live view of the Grand Canyon during my travels, so I will be thinking of you. God bless you all,
Mrs. Gannett
