This has been an absolutely amazing week. Twenty-six teens, eight youth leaders, and five Youthworks staff came together this week to create an experience of worship, fellowship, and service that I will never forget.
There is not a single person in our group who hasn't undergone change this week.
New friendhips were made. Old friendhips were renewed. The hands and feet of Jesus were made alive a the kids fixed meals for the homeless, made convesation with the elderly, and befriended those who struggle because of mental and emotional disorders.
I am so very proud of our kids, for stepping out on faith into new and sometimes very uncomfortable situations on order to show love and compassion to the marginalized people of Toronto.
There are so many stories to tell, and so many memories to look back on that I will never be able to record them all before they start slipping away.
To all of you parents, River Vallians, and friends, who have been thinking about us, praying for us, or wondering how we are doing....
Your kids are safe and happy, and maybe a little worn out.
We had an awesome week. All of us.
We are getting up in 5 hours to pack up, clean up, and head out for some sight seeing and touristy stuff. We are anxious to be home and will see you all on Saturday.
