Schizophrenic Weather And Servants’ Hearts

Trinity Presbyterian Church of Murfreesboro, TN has had two full days of work and two completely different days of weather. Trinity is the 4th (of 16) short-term mission team of the summer.

On Monday this 16-person team encountered heavy cloud cover and a light rain. This kept the construction time in the morning nice and cool. The team divided into two groups. The first group continued work on a house for a poor family. The second group started work on an open-air gazebo for the high school on our ministry property.

In the afternoon the team helped teach and administer oral exams for our English class. They provided pronunciation help for the 35 students.

On Tuesday the clouds broke and the heat set in. In the morning the divided teams continued their respective work on the house and the gazebo.

In the afternoon the team from Trinity helped put on a Kids Club for 70 kids. They helped with memory verses, catechism questions and a Bible skit. The missionaries also helped with the craft and played games with the kids.
