Washington DC Missions Trip: Report 2

My 11 year old daughter is presently in Washington DC on a short term missions trip with about twelve other 11 and 12 year old children. Please pray for them as they serve the Lord and learn about missions. Here is their second report:

This is Katie again writing for Pastor Cheryl. The internet is still down at Share Organization (please pray that the internet will go back up - it has been a setback for the organization), so I will relay a message from the DC team!

Everyone is doing well - Pastor Cheryl said the kids are extremely grateful to be there. They're all a bit tired, but happy!

Today, they are bagging 1-pound bags of dry beans in a warehouse with no air conditioning. Please pray that they will stay cool and continue to serve with cheerful hearts! After working at the warehouse, they will spend some time visiting the Lincoln memorial, Korean memorial, Vietnam memorial, as well as the Roosevelt memorial. Later this evening they will participate in an outreach at a women's homeless shelter.

Pastor Cheryl also wanted me to convey a praise report! Last night the children were able to pray with Crystal, one of the Share employees - she has been unable to sleep well for the past several nights. This morning she told the team that not only did she sleep, but she was able to sleep in! Praise God!

Please continue to pray for the team!
