Tonight at 6:30 our GAT (Global Alpha Training) has the privilege of telling stories of our trip. This is one of the most important parts of doing mission trips -- come home and tell the story! We've been a little frustrated at the difficulty of getting this event scheduled -- now people are thinking about the fishing opener, Mother's Day, and plans for Memorial Day weekend. We've lost a little bit of the initial rush when we first came home.
Judging by people's comments, though, we'll have a good crowd of people who have been invested in this trip all along. We had so many people who supported us in every way -- I'm excited to be able to show pictures, tell stories, and help them feel like their investment was and continues to be important!
The other part of this is, in the wisdom of God, that since we arrived back there have been a few important developments that may help Alpha grow among the Protestant churches in the central Philippines.
So if you're in the neighborhood, come to Central tonight, have some coffee and a cookie or two, and enjoy the funny and heart-expanding stories of our trip!
