It has been an amazing summer! 4 Vacation Bible Schools, a short term mission trip to Honduras, 5 Day Club, Victory Sports, a cook out, a visiting mission team from Alabama, Youth Serve, The Way, a mission to serve at Walt’s Chapel, a free yard sale of school clothes and food truck, The Way, Mission Possible Backyard Bible Study, and a Back to School Bash! The Connection has truly been a bridge this summer for The Church to serve in the Countryside and also to transport our neighbors to their churches to serve! The Church, loved well, built relationships, and showed this community the hope and light found in Jesus Christ! The children at The Connection experienced many things this month from writing letters to orphans in Honduras to serving the children at a service at Walt’s Chapel in Lancaster! The children and their parents have participated in the daily functions of the ministry from planning to set up. The unity I have seen developing between the children is a beautify sprout we will continue to water. As summer ends, please continue to pray for the children as they return to school, and many of them as they make the transition to middle school…. and for Hannah and my son Brandon as they move to college!!!! Thank you Jesus for your love, patience, grace, and mercy always and forever!
