Alabama Days 1-3!

Days 1-3!! We have all arrived in Alabama safely! The Lord has already provided for us in getting one of our team members’ wheelchairs through multiple flights safely. We met our ministry partners, Donna and Sheryl, and moved into our camp for the next 2 weeks to be with our families that we will be working with! Alabama is so beautiful and our camp is in the most beautiful location!! We have spent our first few days getting camp prepared for families by blowing up inflatables at the pool, getting training in disability ministry, celebrating a team member’s birthday, and learning about the unique needs and stories of each family we will be working with before they arrive! We have spent lots of team time together playing games, sitting at the lake at camp and practicing just being in the presence of the Lord, and spending much time in the Word and in prayer before we meet our new friends!

Campers and their families arrived today (June 17) and it was so incredible to see all of the joy they brought! We got to welcome the families with a dance party and lots of excitement. We got to spend the evening with our families, spend time eating dinner by the lake, & spend time getting to know our new friends and how we can best serve them!! The Lord has already been so evident in the consistent joy we have seen in all of the people we’ve been able to meet. Seeing the Lord work in so many stories of so many different people has been so cool! We are so excited to continue spending time with them and seeing how the Lord works in each of the relationships we are building!!

We would love prayers for continued strength and endurance as we have two weeks ahead of us, for wisdom in conversation with our families, & for endurance in the heat! We are so excited to see how the Lord works in these 2 works!!
