Local Mission Trip 2022

Posted by: Isabella Henrique

Today, March 3, 2022, the Junior's and Senior's who chose to go on the local trip started the day off with some praise and worship. After gathering and singing with Victoria C. playing the guitar Bradley P. graced us with a message of "Happines
s". This message dealt with relatable circumstances to the students and taught us that we have to choose happiness. Once we prayed and got on board the bus, driven by Mr. Kincaid, we made our way to Florence Fuller to help out with the kids. The kids spanned from as young as a couple of months, which Victoria C., Palloma j., and Mrs. Pelletier took care of, to 5 years old, which Chesko F., Nichita B., and Heidi B. took care of. All the students felt compassion and love for the children who we were sad to leave, "All the kids were crying," said Mrs. Shaffer when Faith P., Valerie G., Victor O., and Jimmy V. left. After lunch, we finished our day at Veterans Park to pick up the trash and clean up the area where many enjoy spending their time in. When all of us finished cleaning up and exploring the park we relaxed on the playground and had great conversations. To finish off the day we prayed for important matters like the Ukraine situation and said our goodbyes.
