Last week several of the youth and a couple of the men from my church joined about 20 other people on a mission trip to a small town to help repair homes for low income people. They did everything from fix leaky roofs to put in new bathrooms.
Justin said the trip was good and bad. There were a lot of cliques and not all the kids acted in a loving way toward each other, but he made some great new friends. In fact, he's been e-mailing back and forth constantly with his new friends since his return three days ago.

I missed Justin so much that it kind of hurt, but I'm also very proud of him for working hard to help others. He came back with blisters on his hands and feet, but also with that great feeling that comes from being a servant of God.
