Day Four: They Came!
Our final day here in Lenwood is complete! We are very tired, but very excited to have
had the opportunity to serve here!
Today was our Memorial Day picnic which we began setting up right after breakfast and lasted until late afternoon. We cooked about 182 hamburgers and 200 hot dogs, ate nine huge watermelons, 15 bags of chips, and 420 bottles of water just in one day!
We are estimating that close to 200 people came to this event!
More importantly, we were able to have deeper conversations today with people our team had connected with during the trip.
We prayed with them, laughed with them, got their contact information and encouraged them to have a relationship with Christ.
One conversation and one act at a time.
Several people gave their testimonies throughout the day.
Pastor Jeff drove around town mid-way through the picnic and stopped to invite more families and kids to come over and enjoy the carnival games, food, and candy... and they came!
We praise God that the gospel was told and we had the privilege to be His hands and feet in Lenwood, CA.
What an amazing Memorial Day!
