Today I have helped in many ways. To start off with, I helped Greg with electrical work at the church. Later I swept the church porch and pulled weeds. At the school I went across the campus picking up trash with Wyatt. Together we picked up almost 200 pieces of trash. Picking up the trash made me realize how careless we can be. Someone has to pick up the litter and as the person picking up the litter, I can tell you that it is not fun especially if you didn't make the mess.

And although on mission trips we are there to serve, I had a lot of fun with my friends along the way. I had a great time with Hannah and the other tribers on the playground. The kids of Gary reminded me of something too. Many of the kids at Gary were there for the free food and that made me realize how blessed I am to have food. I don't have to worry about not eating. On this trip if I have learned one thing, it's not to take things for granted.

Through this trip I have also learned that no sin is too big for God not to forgive us. I love spending time with the tribe and learning more about God. This mission trip is an awesome way to spend my summer.
