Tennessee Living!

It’s been awhile, but for once I have a good excuse for not writing. I have been in Tennessee for a week, leading our youth mission team. We were in Oneida, TN for a week of home repair. Boy, did we get a lot done. We did two porches, two additions, and got 3/4 of a house sided. All that in 4 days. It was a great to see our students learn so much, and learn about serving.

One lesson learned was how we react when we serve and nobody “seems” to notice. at our one site, the homeowner was not there. So the work was done with no interaction. But we are called to serve whether or not we get a thank-you, a smile, or even the blessing of someones presence. That was a valuable lesson to learn.

It was also humbling. Humility was our theme for the week. By and large, we are not a humble people. But when you do work like we did, you become humbled. This trip, like the ones before, taught be many lessons about myself and God. Probably in the upcoming days I will share some of those lessons.

Until then…live to serve!
