Workcamp Day 4
Randy, Anna and I have safely made it to the Shell gas station and back to McDonald’s for the daily post. We were guided by Karen, Daniel, Isabelle (Spanish) and Jack at various points. We were delighted to discover that McDonald’s has $1 drinks for any size! They even tell us, you can fill a ketchup bottle for free. Awesome! We’re bringing Jake next time.
We’re all alive, despite the fact that some have not called their mothers yet. I have it on good authority that some of them will call this evening, but not promises it will be yours.
Our theme for yesterday was Love Out Loud Risks. We decided to do a daily challenge of sorts for our group. We decided that we wouldn’t let anyone sit alone at camp and that we’d write letters to Group Workcamp and School Staff. We also shared some of the extra "Mud" packets that T-Bone sent us (Thanks T!) with the Group Staffers. We gave them to the first three I met in the halls, and then saved the 4th for Kate, the office manager who makes us sing to get our packages. Anna says she also shared her Pop Rocks from Deb C’s care package to us with a staffer.
Today’s theme was Love Out Loud Serves. We looked at what it means to be a servant during our worksite devos. We’ll explore the topic more at the evening program.
Work is progressing on our worksites. Everyone has come back each day with some really awesome stories from the day. The residents here are all very generous in welcoming us into their homes and community. We’ve also had one of our crews get filmed by the local media. Supposedly, the video and pictures will be up at whiotv.com and DaytonDailyNews.com. If you see them, post the address for me in the comments please. 🙂
We’re looking forward to our special half-day out to the University of Dayton RecPlex tomorrow, and then dinner at McCormick and Schmidt’s. Should be a fun day out with the gang. It’s just about time for us to get going back to camp, so we’ll check back with you tomorrow!
