Yes, I enjoyed this quiet week with my bride but it is so great to have the kids home again!
They both are full of stories from their time in Birmingham with World Changers. This was a bit different than other summer retreats they have been on in the past. As my daughter said, “this time it was not about us.” There were about 60 from our church who met up with other youth groups from around the southeast to do some hard work in the name of The Lord. There were around 800 youth total. They slept on the floor of a local middle school and worked on various construction projects in the area.
They demolished, hammered, roofed, painted, poured concrete, landscaped, played with little children, went into the neighborhoods as witness teams and to a child grew closer with their saviour. This earthly father is truly blessed!
