Church and Paintball

Posted by:Bianca, Christa and Mr. Hood
This morning started out with a little gray rainy weather but still a beautiful view of the Smoky Mountains from the front porch of the Long View Ranch dining hall. Breakfast was yummy homemade Chick-fil-A type sandwiches and hash browns. We dove into Ephesians Ch. 3 for devos and after that six of our classmates and Mrs. Distefano left to be part of the Praise and Worship Team at Disciples Point - the church we attended today. The rest of the class had a little more free time before boarding the bus for church. Disciples Point meets in an old car dealership showroom and is a wonderful group of believers who have been partnering with our Sophomore trip for the past 11 years. Pastor Josh shared a powerful message encouraging us to know that God looks at each of us as a holy and blameless child of God. Our classmates did a fantastic job helping to lead the church in praise and worship during the service today:

After eating a delicious lunch at Disciple's Point we went to Walmart to pick up a few things for the week. After Walmart we hurried back to Long View to play an exciting and competitive game of paint ball - which Mr. Hood said he believes was one of the longest sessions on a Sophomore trip and had one of the largest groups of competitive girls playing!

Then we had an hour break were people relaxed and cleaned up for dinner. For dinner we had delicious baked Ziti, Garlic bread, and Caesar salad. Along with dinner we celebrated Isabella Andreazza's birthday. Then we had another hour long break before we went into a beautiful praise and worship and then group discussion about Ephesians Chapter 3. We finished off the day with some free time and due to the rainy weather we played a variety of games indoors until 11:00 pm. Looking forward to another great day tomorrow! This the Sophomores signing off...
