Hello everyone! I hope that you’ve had a great couple of weeks since the last time that I’ve posted. I have been kept quite busy since returning to 360 earlier this month. The team & I went to Staten Island to do Hurricane Sandy Relief work for the purpose of outreach prep. We leave in about a month & a half for Nepal, so the leaders wanted to work out some of the kinks before we left for the real deal. We had a few days in New York City to explore. It was so much fun!
On Staten Island, we worked on two houses. The houses were built, but there was still much to do. We did insulation, painting, priming, caulking, cleaning, electrical, & anything else that they needed us to do. We worked hard, but there was so much fun involved! Everyone was laughing & having a good time basically all of the time. It was so fun to be a part of such an incredible team who love each other & constantly build everyone up.
We had 2 free days in the city, & it was my first time exploring such a big city! It was super fun & we saw A LOT! On Sunday, we went to Hillsong NYC, which was incredible!! The worship was awesome & the message was so relevant. It was about making God your first love again.
The team was also invited to New York Disaster Interfaith Services (NYDIS) award ceremony. It was really boring, but 360 received recognition for our hard work, so that was super awesome!!
All in all, I think that the trip did its job of forcing people into uncomfortable, but healthy situations. It definitely brought us closer together as a team. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us in Nepal. I know that it’s going to be incredible!!
With so much love,
