Sunday we attended a church service at Grace Church and worshiped with the brothers and sisters there. Sunday afternoon and evening we relaxed and visited with Tom Schafer (ALC’s maintenance director), his son Kevin, and a young lady from California who is here to work at the Adventure Learning Center until December. On Monday we met with the rest of the ALC staff for morning devotions and sat in on some of the new staff orientation meetings. We enjoyed a pizza lunch with the ALC staff before boarding the van to go to downtown Nassau to visit the Straw Market (a couple of the new staff members had not been there yet).
After a full week of learning and exploring, we are a few short hours away from departing this beautiful island. Although we are excited to get to be going home to some “normalcy”, we are going to miss this place. We are taking home a lot of memories of the wonderful people, Bahamian culture, sites and sounds of the island (both the good and the bad), and most importantly a burden for the Adventure Learning Center ministry and the people it serves. We have a lot to contemplate and pray about that is for sure.
We will be processing all we have seen and learned from this trip, and we will be letting you all know our plans as they become more clear. Please pray for us!
A note about the tabs in the upper right corner of this blog: our contact information is under the “contact us” tab, and although there is nothing under the “about us” tab yet, we are working on putting together a narrative describing our journey into full time vocational ministry. So, check back later if you are interested in hearing our story.
Below is a picture of the ALC staff (plus us). If we end up transferring to the Adventure Learning Center Camp, these are some of the dear people we will be ministering with. We will post more pictures of our trip at a later date.
Until next time….
