Misssions Trip. Rosebud Reservation, SD

Here are a few shots of the Missions trip. It was a good week. I learned to not worry about what is ahead, and just take each day at a time. Also, I need to remember to be still and know that God is God. Can I get an amen?!? 

During the day, my group was sent out to work on painting teacher's housing in St. Francis, SD. This is what the house looked like when we started painting, just a mess:

This is what the house looked like after, all finished:

We had about 43 highschoolers go on this trip, we got split into groups for the work projects. This was the group that Chris Versteeg and I got blessed with. They worked so hard and were proud of the finished product. Awesome job:

One morning before we stopped at a museum and a BEAUTIFUL church:

I think this is the churches website.

One of Johnny Cash's guitar at the museum:

During the evenings, we took outings and did little events. My favorite was when we drove to Valentine, NE (40 miles away from the res.) and hiked and did our nights devotions in God's beautiful nature scene:

My friend Heather, who was one of the staff members, she told us what to do and where to go. She plays violin, just like me! I bonded with her and we had a lot in common. I miss her. I can't find her on facebook :( 
If you are out there Heather, get a hold of me!

After the week was up in Rosebud, SD...we went to Rapid City for a day. We got to see Mt. Rushmore and other things:
That is the quick look into the week! Hope you enjoyed :) 
Thanks for your prayers and support. We felt every bit if it!

*God will work in everyone's heart, that everyone will draw closer to Him through this experience. 
*servant hearts
*pray that we work together as a team to accomplish a lot
*that David and Blackey will be not burn down the house, and that they don't get too lonely without me! :) lol :)

I will post more about how it went when I get back.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers! Much appreciated. 

A snapshot from last weekend

Last weekend, David and I went to Des Moines. It was so fun. I love it there. I love my family there. Here are the best snapshots from the trip (photographer: Me-simplyJUDYBLIGH). lol.

First stop Saturday morning, the downtown Farmers Market!
Jayne, this breakfast pizza I ate was for you:
Awesome graphic design posters. I took a photo so I could remember it and use it as inspiration:
Walking back to the farmers market:

Next stop...pool. These slides David went down like a billion times. He LOVES water slides.
We went to this Jazz in July concert at the end of the day (we walked from our house, onto the golf coarse to get there):
David got this toy thing that was so fun to play with. I like when it went under the old persons chair!!!!
