Goodbye, Dream Center

Posted by: Juniors
Our last morning at the Dream Center began early (as all mornings do!).  Several of the boys, plus Mr. Shiver and Mr. Nova, got up at 4:30 to drive to Phoenix First Assemby church to work out with the disciples.  They got quite a work out! Others went back to CASS to feed the homeless there, while most of the girls made salvation bracelets with the women's Bible study at the Dream Center. After a tearful farewell to our friends, and an obligatory Starbuck's stop, we were off to Sedona.  After lunch there, about half the students hiked at Cathedral Rock while the other half shopped and relaxed in the town. On the way to Flagstaff, we found just enough snow for a snowball fight, to the delight of most of us who had rarely seen snow.  Dinner was pizza at LaQuinta, followed by devotions led by Rosa, who shared a personal story about our theme verse:  Wait for the Lord. Be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord. Ps 27:14.  We have had lots of great sharing in our devotion times, and tonight was no different.  We have all learned to appreciate each other and what we have. We're looking forward to the Grand Canyon tomorrow.  This may be our last blog until we arrive home, depending on our schedule.  Please come to the Mission Trip Chapel this Friday at 9 am to hear more about our trip and all that the Lord has done through all the mission trips this year.
