Hey parent team,
We are settled in at the airport and awaiting our flight time at 2pm. The kids are in great spirits but are somewhat tired. It’s has been an incredible experience, and you should be so incredibly proud of your kids.
They have served hard, loved deeply and worked consistently from day to night. The consistent response from teams serving beside us was one of amazement at how impressive the kids served and ministered.
So for a parental update, your son or daughter may take a while to mentally and spiritually unpack from the trip. They have many stories and experiences because of how many ministries we able to dive into. We can all certainly appreciate the struggle and victories that they have experienced. From last Friday it has been all go go go. Because our team is very well respected in the Skid Row area We weren’t able to debrief near as much. That’s for the weeks upcoming.
So to best help them and you as mom and dad. As we arrive, it’s difficult to give you proper context because we have experienced something well beyond the normal. The stories will come out, and every step of the way, I am looking forward to partnering with you in the debrief process.
One more thought for you. Thank you for entrusting your kids on this journey. They have been an incredible blessing to the communities around them, and to me. Meaningful conversations from the morning wake-up to the wee hours of the night, it has been an amazingly rich experience. And if you want to jump in later this month, we have more missional living experiences coming up!
Again thank you and we will see you in a few short hours!
