The best thing I can say about yesterday was that it was wholly uneventful, which is just what you want! Of course there were memories made, stories told, songs sung, but when it came down to the drive, it was pretty uneventful. Here is what we know:
1. 18 jr high students+3 vans+snacks+drinks= bathroom stops every 2 hours or so.
2. Rest stops have some awful bathrooms.
3. Carly Rae Jepsen and her song “Call Me Maybe” gets play way too often for anyone (especially adult van drivers)
4. Jr Higher’s have boundless energy (something that has been known since the dawn of time, but reaffirmed)
We stayed at Grace Presbyterian Church last night, and soon we will be pushing out towards San Francisco. We will arrive in SF sometime today. We will probably have a few hours of free time, which we will spend down at Fisherman’s Wharf. We will start our actual trip tonight with dinner at an Indian restaurant (we will see how many students are adventurous enough to try to goat curry) and a prayer tour of San Francisco, where we will learn about the city, it’s needs, challenges and problems. We will also get the chance to pray for the city.
Tomorrow we will break into ministry groups and begin serving the city and it’s people. We are excited to get going. It is going to be a great week. We covet your prayers throughout the week.
Remember, any comments you leave here will get relayed to your students at breakfast!
