Final Miami Update!

The team has arrived safely back in PA!  We got back to Emmaus around 9:30 last night.  It is hard to believe that yesterday we were still in Florida.  Our last morning in Miami was spent joining with the fellow believers of New Life Chapel in their Sunday morning small groups and service.  Our team divided  up and all went to different Sunday school classes.   Some helped with the children, others joined the youth, and a few more dropped in on one of the adult classes.  The team was grateful to have this last opportunity to worship with the people who had helped out in so many ways to make our time in Miami so enjoyable!  It was also a blessing to be able to spend a few more hours with some of the children who had been at camp during the week.

After the service, we were treated to some true Southern hospitality … a delicious fellowship dinner complete with the traditional favorites: fried chicken, cornbread, and sweet potato pie!  The team was very thankful to have a filling meal before we started our travels home.  After many bitter-sweet good-byes,  we left the church around 2:00 for the Fort Lauderdale airport.   Our flight left at 5:15 for Philadelphia.  It was a smooth flight and we arrived safely in Philadelphia around 8:00.  As we walked out of the gate, we were greeted by some familiar faces of one of our team member’s parents.  It was wonderful to be welcomed back to PA with hugs and smiling faces!

Thank you everyone who has kept our team in prayer!  The trip would have been impossible without all of you!  Thank you Pastor Lee and your family for your hospitality!  Thank you New Life Chapel for all your support and help throughout the week!  Thank you to all those who helped support individuals on our team so that they could be an important part of the ministry that took place!  And most importantly, thank You God for all that You did in our lives, the people of New Life Chapel, and the lives of the campers!  We cannot express our thanks to You enough!
