MUSINGS FROM PASTOR BRAD
We got back from our Mission Trip late Friday night from a week in Nashville. We did and saw much. Toured the Grand Ole Opry, visited the Nashville Zoo, Centennial Park and the Parthenon, went to Opryland, and they even indulged me in going to get some BBQ (and I indulged them with ice cream!). We worked at homeless shelters, community centers, nursing home, with organizations as varied as Habitat for Humanity, Community Resource Center of Middle Tennessee, and Shower Up, which provides shower services to the homeless. We sweated in the crazy heat, endured taking five minute showers in a building with no AC and sleeping on air mattresses where the AC was so high you had to wear all your clothes. We served alongside people from Michigan and Minnesota, did the Church Clap dance, laughed, cried, and everything in between. It was a good trip and I know the kids can’t wait to share it all with you in the future and to thank you for helping to make it happen.
But this little post here is about two people who, without them, we couldn’t have gone on this trip. This is about our two volunteer chaperones, Melissa Holden and Lori Jensen. Katie and I get to go on this trip but that is also part of our job. Melissa and Lori had to leave their jobs for a week to go on this trip, and without them, we wouldn’t have been able to go. They drove a van, headed up work crews, and provided much needed guidance and support to our youth throughout the week. They had to sleep on air mattresses and endure all the same things that the kids had to endure. They might have even had to battle a cockroach in their bed! Through it all, they were a great example to our youth and participated fully in everything the Mission Trip offered.
We have been blessed through the years with adults willing to give up so much to come with our kids on our trip and all of them, including Melissa and Lori, have been awesome. So if you see these two, please thank them for making this trip a reality, for sacrificing so much to be a part of it, and for the awesome servants, parents, and leaders that they are. Thank you Melissa and Lori!
