Last Day Picture

One of the traditions of many men on Mission Trip is not shaving for the week. Kenny's team all committed to not shaving during the week. Unfortunately, the girls shaved and kept clean but the boys kept their agreement. Below is a picture of Kenny's boys at the end of the week. Recognize anyone?

So Long Harlingen

Well this morning we are packing up everything and coming home, and we will take with us a great experience and a special love for the people of Harlingen, especially the congregation of the Wesley UMC. We have been warmly welcomed, loved and cared for. Thanks to Pastor Tim, Mary Catherine, Esmie, Delyce, Burt, Wally and everyone else who helped us so much.

We hope you come to see us on Sunday and listen to our stories. God has moved so many of us closer to God and to each other.

Last night the presence of the Spirit was felt in our last worship together as a Living Center. Jesus showed up. He was wearing flip flops, cut offs, had on too much cologne, or was wearing the latest in Mission Trip fashion. He spoke of helping others and loving hard work for no pay. He shared with us stories of smoothing concrete, building a ramp and helping an older person get into her new shower for the first time. Jesus was here and we were blessed.

Thank you to all who have supported the youth from Central Texas so that we could have this wonderful experience. More pictures may be posted in the days ahead as they are available. A copy of our pictures was given to each church present.

See you next time.
