On Saturday, after we picked up the team from Talapoosa, GA we got them settled in at the SonRise Mission Inn in Sandy Bay, grabbed some lunch and headed for church set-up. Sunday we had church and take-down then an afternoon of swimming and hanging out as we prepared for the week ahead.
As far as Fourth of July celebrations, we opted out because we were gearing up for Monday and decided to stay at home and swim with the kids instead of venturing out. There are a few gringo establishments that actually had some fire works and celebrations, small compared to what we are used to in the states, but still patriotic. The power actually went out at about 7:30pm and thank God it came back on in about an hour or so because it was a very hot and still night.
Here are a few shots of children's church and the take-down side of all that goes into a church without a permanent home. It is amazing that all of the equipment fits into a small enclosed trailer, it is like a jigsaw puzzle getting everything inside it. We also started a toddler classroom about two months ago and it is going really well; this enables the children's church to really blossom and pay attention to the lesson. Good stuff.
