Hi everybody it's Carleigh, It's been a busy week for everybody on the team here are a few highlights of this week! Worshiping on Mt.Royal, Playing Ultimate Frisbee, Watching the Gospel Choir Family One, Playing Soccer, Playing Cards, Banana Rave, Riding the Metro, Watching Levi carry Graham up 284 stairs and Getting to know people!
Back to Brooklyn. We are home! After a slight rain delay, we have gotten through four hours of waiting at the airport and have made it back to Winnipeg. I am writing this from my bed. You have no idea how wonderful my bed is. And air conditioning! I love air conditioning. It's going to be a bit of an adjustment for us. Georgia offered up this great idea of ESSOR Montreal being a "Kingdom Glimpse." That has stuck with me. I hope it will give me perspective as I attempt to share the impact this trip has had on me.
I wish I could write down all the stories from our time. We're planning on having a service at LSCF in a month or so, so make sure to listen for when that's happening. Thank you for all the love and support. It was great to see so many of your smiling faces when we got to the airport.
We've come away with a new perspective of the world. I think this trip has given missions a new light for us. I am so excited to see what God is going to do with each and every one of us. I couldn't help but smile when Curtis said "We'll be back in 4 years, when we're youth leaders!"
I will miss my family. I will miss Hangry Abe. I will miss giggling with Erica. I will miss Carleigh's creepy sleeping. I will miss Jenna's sarcasm. I will miss Cara's patience, Jessica's dancing, Camille's smile, Georgia's leadership, Jamie's trouble-making, Jordan's honesty, Kennedy's never ending Sean comments, and Abby's questions. I will miss Adrielle's energy, Graham's parkour, Ryan's James, Reiss's prayers, Justin's outgoing-ness, and Curtis's worshiping. I will miss so many more things, but I am excited about what youth in the fall will look like. This has been an intense experience. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
So once again, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Christ est ma joie!
