June 2013 Almost Over

 Father's Day

We are building over here. I left Monday morning and didn't get back until last evening and look what happened! 

We spent last weekend in NYC with the youth group. Good times. We were hosted by Desti Nations Mission Training Center in NYC.  It really could not have gone any better.

 Not sure what happened to Henry but he was standing right there in the middle playing guitar while we sang. This was my favorite part. 

The youth each had a scavenger hunt style paper to fill out. It required a lot of interaction with people. Such as: Ask someone how to say hello in a different language. Ask 3 people what country they were born in. Ask 3 people what religion they are. Find the price of live eels. Find the high and low price of persimmons. Find a samosa, buy it and taste it. Find the price of a sari. They had to find particular locations and have their picture taken in front of it. Each group of 4 had a map and they were not allowed to use their phones. They were in charge of getting their own lunch while they were out and also buying a ticket for the train which we used later. We met at a particular location and then did street ministry and singing.

Passion fruit smoothie with tapioca on the bottom. 

This is Andrew, he had tofu for the first time ever, this was served to his group after they attended a Taiwanese church Sunday morning. 


  1. Love the scavenger hunt idea!

  2. wow, the weekend in NYC looks like a smashing success! I'm sure your youth came away challenged and inspired. Jealous of the people you were able to spend time with....Henry's, Joel's, Melissa (miss that girl!). MTC is definetely on our list for the next furlough. I could pass on the bubble tea though, did you actually like that stuff? Maybe they just didn't make it right in Thailand, who knows.

  3. I don't think it was a normal bubble tea, just had the tapioca stuff in the bottom of a smoothie. It was good. I am wondering now about the drinks that the others got, as they looked more like tea. MTC took good care of us, loved it.
