As we sit here in the Buffalo waiting for our flight back to Phoenix, its hard to focus on all that happened this past week. I think we will keep remembering details as time goes on. In the meantime our missioners will be writing their thoughts and memories of our week helping some very deserving and grateful people in east Buffalo, NY.
This past week has been an incredible experience that I will never forget! I was anxious to get to Buffralo and meet the crew I would be working with since this was my first time on a mission trip. Everyone was very welcoming and ecstatic about the week to come. The owner of the house we were painting was so thankful and inviting. She ate lunch with us and participated in our noon devotions. By the end of the week, the whole crew was like a family. My favorite part of the day was the nightly meetings. We sang songs of worship, discussed our day at the work site and further developed our relationship with Jesus. Throughout the course of the week I met many new friends that I hope to keep in touch with. It was a phenomenal week that has changed my perspective on a lot of aspects of my life. Thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way!
