FRIED-DAY!!


7/20/2013 by Steve Kinsel

Today felt like the hottest day of the week (not sure if officially it was or not) so it was a good thing we worked a half day today.  Each team worked until their project was done.  On touring the houses, it was quite impressive how much has changed (for the better of course-haha) since first arriving Monday. 

Houses are starting to ...

Thursday!


7/19/2013 by Steve Kinsel

Again, technical difficulties, though this time not with my laptop but with the internet availability at the church.  It’s been down until now- so am finally posting this.

Today has proven to be our hottest day yet.  The thermometer hit 100 with a real feel temp (factoring in humidity) of 107.  Everyone was sure to drink plenty ...

Curveballs and home runs!


7/19/2013 by Steve Kinsel

Even though I DID write a post last night, apparently my laptop “locked up” b/c of the heat/ humidity and wasn’t able to actually submit it to post…..sorry about that.

So, to recap- yesterday (Wednesday) was a day filled with some curveballs (aka: challenges, unexpected situations or issues, minor injuries- scrapes and ...

God sightings!!


7/17/2013 by Steve Kinsel

Hey everybody,

One of the things we like to share about as a group is where and when we've seen God at work, a "God moment" if you will, throughout the day.  We call these "God sightings".  As we listened to the experiences of each of the 4 groups, after only 2 days on work-sites there have already been many such ...

Sweat Equity


7/15/2013 by Steve Kinsel

That expression is especially true so far on this trip.  There has definitely been sweat, but it's certainly for a good cause.

The combo of a heat wave here and a good 'ol fashioned church with no A/C has helped us to feel like we're serving down in South America close to the equator, not 40 minutes away from home.  We will all...

Are you ready to be Jesus' hands and feet?


7/12/2013 by Steve Kinsel

Hey everyone,

Hope you're gearing up for the trip, be praying for an open heart to what God has in store for you/us this week, as well as the hearts of our residents. 

Remember to bring a water bottle and plenty of sunscreen, it may be quite warm.  Also, if you like, a personal fan may be a good idea (notice the word personal, as in ...

Thank you to Tracy Augustine for writing this initial blog entry for this week's chapter!
 

Stress Point: Love/Dating Part 1
He Is Just That Into You

Reflection from Tracy: When I looked at the chapters for this book I silently groaned when I saw there were two chapters on dating. Do I really need to be reminded that I’m single? After I ...

Body Image: I Heart the Skinny Mirror

I pray that the Lord has used this chapter to speak to you in a very powerful way. This is a topic that can often be uncomfortable to discuss or even think about, but it is one that if we make the hard decision to honestly process and reflect upon, we can be set free by the Holy Spirit from the negative thought ...

SELF-IMAGE: COMFORTABLE IN MY OWN SKIN

Chapter 2 Reflections:
When looking at the title of this chapter, I am sure this is one chapter that perhaps we all ‘hoped’ that on some level, we didn’t connect with. The idea of being ‘comfortable in our own skin’ and dealing with one’s body image (as is next

Hey everyone,

We're in the airport waiting to head home.  Sorry for no blog the last day, I've been under the weather past few days.  But just wanted to check in one last time to let you know things are all good here and we had a great last couple of days.

Part of our Friday included touring the museum downtown dedicated to the ...

Yup, 2 blogs in ONE day!!


7/13/2012 by Steve Kinsel

Greetings on this late Thursday night,

Today, there's no way around it, it was HOT....I believe like 96-97, but no problem, b/c it's a "dry heat"...Ha, 96 is still 96, but yes at least they have little humidity.

Teams worked hard today to make a bunch of progress on their projects, and then at dinner time we had a couple of ...

Wow it's Thursday??


7/12/2012 by Steve Kinsel

Good morning from Joplin,

We had a great day yesterday, prob. our best yet.  All the teams worked very well together and are getting a lot done.  There is a lot of roofing work to be done (as you could imagine with a mega tornado) and flooring, siding etc.  I've seen some of our girls get in on some hammering and caulking action ...
