Middle School Mission Trip

Happily, I picked Julia up today from a four day mission trip.
A mission trip where?
Charleston, South Carolina.
Where?
Charleston.
Yes, Charleston.


And we were all pretty happy about the destination.

But, why Charleston?
Like Athens and possibly every other great place to visit in America,
the comfortable and prosperous are shadowed by the opposite.
So while the kids were exposed to history and beauty, they learned a little
about children who will not go anywhere this summer.


In fact, some of the children in the day camp where the CPC kids volunteered,
feel safest when they are at the day camp.
Our kids eyes were opened
to the fact that basic necessities of food, shelter and safety
 are very much a blessing.


... And that it is lots of fun to volunteer...
whether at a food bank, a day camp
or an adult nursing/rehab facility...



...especially in Charleston!
