Funny story - Two college age girls went with us. One night one of the girls was staying the night with a friend, so after church we decided we would take Stacie to the movies. The movie theatre was 10 blocks from our hotel. We decided to see The Dark Night. The movie was really good. The only thing was the movie ended at 12:30 and we had to walk those 10 blocks back to our hotel in the dark. Stacie and I were SO scared. So the point of the story is The Dark Night is a good movie, but I would not recommend watching it when you have to walk 10 blocks in the dark.After Nationals we got to stay home for a week. We left on August 2nd to head to OKC. Our flight left early on the 3rd so we stayed the night in OKC. Daniel and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on the 3rd while flying to Harlingen, TX with our youth ministry. It was so very romantic. I really don't mind sharing my anniversary though because at least 40 people received Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Who would have thought that a guy in our youth ministry would want to wear my sling. It was pretty funny!
Luke stomping trash at the Way of the Cross Warehouse while we are making kits to hand out. Our students crossed the border on Monday and Tuesday. I stayed back at the head quarters with Luke.On Monday they went to the dump. It was a very eye opening experience for our kids. I really think that they have a better appreciation for the things that they have.They also went into a neighborhood on Monday. They knocked on doors and invited people to a church service.I think that the children were our kids highlight of the week. On Tuesday they went to a shark fishing village on the beach.
Wednesday they crossed the border and went shopping. Then they came and picked me and Luke up and we went to South Padre Island.
It's been a great summer, but I'm ready for things to slow down for a little while! Stayed tuned for next weeks post. We celebrate our 2nd Forever Family Day with Lukas next week!
