So I’m sitting here in a church full of us, the other work group from Virginia Tech University (they’re pretty awesome) and a bunch of UrbanPromise staff and this – this is the Body of Christ at it’s best. 🙂

This is gonna be short and kind of incoherent because it’s 12:30AM – just a warning/apology in advance. 😉

In the mornings we’ve been helping out at UrbanPromise in whatever way possible – cleaning cars, stuffing/stamping/addressing envelopes, gardening… it’s fun.

Camp has been awesome. We’ve all been doing different things, but something common across all of the camps is that we’ve been helping the kids in Grade 4 & 5 with their speeches for next Thursday’s speech contest. We’re pretty sad that we’ll be missing it, but it’s been awesome/frustrating/rewarding/sweet to work with and encourage the kids.

We did some sightseeing and dinner in Philadelphia tonight, which was lots of fun bonding and sharing good times as a team.

Like I said, right now we’re just hanging out with the UP staff. These people as so. inspiring. Wish you could all meet them because they are too awesome.

We’ve been hearing lots of great testimonies about how awesome our God is, and we’ve definitely been seeing how awesome our God is.

Wish y’all (getting my Wilmington talk on) could hear ALL the hilarious, amazing and inspiring stories, but you’ll just have to ask us when we get home. 🙂

Please pray for a good last couple days, strength to say goodbye, safe travels home and continued strength and favour for everyone at UrbanPromise Wilmington!

Much love & thanks from the Wilmington Crew!
