Miami Update #8

The team finally arrived back home safely tonight! It was tough for everyone to say goodbye to each other, but we were all thankful for the friendships that were made on the trip and the relationships that were built with people from many different areas.

Saturday was the Church fun day, where kids who participated in the Church’s Vacation Bible School program and Push the Rock camp were invited for a day of fellowship at the Church. Some of the kids had their parents show up, which provided an opportunity for the team to minister to them. At the fun day, there were blow-up rides for the kids to ride and great food. After the fun day, the team got ready for a night in downtown Miami. We toured through the Bayside area, where there were lots of neat shops and restaurants. We ended up eating at a Latin American place right on the waterfront. It was a really neat experience. We were surrounded by Columbia soccer fans who were pulling for their country in the FIFA World Cup. They seemed to pop up everywhere throughout the entire city after their team won! After dinner, we were able to walk outside the Miami Heat’s basketball arena, the American Airlines Center.


This past day began with us participating in worship at the Church. Sunday school was at 9:30 and the service began at 11:00. We enjoyed fellowship with the believers there and were encouraged to see many of the kids from our Push the Rock camp there. Many of the kids had a really tough time saying their goodbyes to us. It was tough to leave, but we were glad to have been an encouragement in the children’s lives. Many seeds were planted in their lives throughout the week and we know that God will provide the growth. We had lunch at the Pastor’s home before heading to the airport to fly out at around 8:00 p.m. We arrived at the airport in Philadelphia at 11:15 and made it back to Emmaus around 1:00 a.m. today. God definitely had His hand upon the trip.

“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
