Sunday morning dawned and most of us were up with the sun. We spent some time getting to know a few of our fellow travelers, and the guys lent a hand to the folks at Zion as they loaded up the food they’d be serving for breakfast later.
At 9:00 we loaded our gear back onto the buses and then hit the streets for the four-block-long walk to a local park, where breakfast was served and worship was held. On the way, some of Waterville’s finest provided assistance in crossing the larger streets in town, and we saw other evidence that the city had rolled out the welcome mat:
With our stomachs and hearts filled, we jumped onto our buses and resumed our journey. We stopped in the Youngstown, Ohio, area for lunch, then spent some time unintentionally exploring the city before we found our way back to the highway. With games, activities, and movies on the bus, we kept ourselves entertained.
Following another stop in the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, area, we arrived at our destination – Georgian Court University in Lakewood, New Jersey, just before midnight. While the youth headed to their rooms to get ready for the night, the adult leaders met to discuss our week’s itinerary. It’ll be a short night for all, but we’re excited about getting to work tomorrow morning! Check back tomorrow for details about our first day of service.
