Here are two of the youth, Ben Cowgill and Hannah Forsell to tell you about their day yesterday -
The trip so far has been pretty fun. We had some traffic jams near Atlanta, so the driving portion dragged on longer than expected. We had a lot of fun singing on the bus. Unfortunately, one bus’s air conditioning broke, so we had to open all the windows. It turned out cooler than the air! Our pickup truck had a flat tire, but other than that, there were no accidents or slow-downs. Then we got to church around 10:00 or 11:00 in Eastern Time! We looked around the church, and went to sleep. Can’t wait until we get to New Orleans!
So far we have had fun with the few activities we’ve participated in. I missed the first four hours of the trip however, because I was out of town. After meeting up with them at the Marriot Hotel, the fun began. While in the bus we played cards, sang songs, went to sleep, and spent time growing and bonding as a group. Fairhope UMC, where we are staying, is such a beautiful and nice church! Everything in it is either new, or kept up so well it looks that way. We are all so thankful to be staying here. After arrival, we all played video games, ping pong, hung out, and showered. After getting used to the new church we all gathered for night prayer, and then went to sleep.
