Missions Trip - Tuesday

On Tuesday, we started with work projects again, then went to Bible school the same as we did on Monday.

The guys working outside.
The girls worked on bulletin boards today. Niki and Stephanie did this board.
Heidi and Kimberly started working on this board today. It was huge! The biggest bulletin board any of us had ever seen (and some of us have seen quite a few).
After Niki and Stephanie finished theirs, they came and helped us.
Bible Club
Bible story!
Missionary story!

Nate, a boy from the church out there who came with us to help. He made a really neat wheel out of some of the empty matchboxes from the matchstick cross craft.
A very sweet little girl.
Craft time!

Game time!

Jacob, one of Nate's brothers who also came along.

Missions Trip - Monday

Monday started out with the girls working inside the church and the guys working outside. It was very warm outside! We were very thankful for air conditioning! Then after lunch Pastor Stringer (the missionary we were working with) took us up to Kitt Peak, which has the largest solar telescope in the world. In the afternoon we headed out to the Indian Reservation (about 50 miles away) for the first night of Bible Club, which consisted of a Bible story taught by two of the guys, a craft that was selected and prepared by one of the girls, a missionary story told by two of the the girls, and a game, selected and run by one of the guys...tonight's game was waterballoons! The kids loved it all! They also seemed to really be paying attention to what we were saying (except for one little boy who fell asleep during the first five minutes). :)

On the way to Kitt's Peak.
Enjoying the beautiful scenery.
Stephen climbed way up on these rocks!
He was able to get us some really nice pictures from up there!
We saw this symbol all over Arizona. This is the Man in the Maze.

The whole base of the telescope building was covered in ladybugs! It was incredible!

The different lookouts.
The largest solar telescope in the world!

Little Alyssa Estep - so precious!
The whole group.

Missions Trip - Sunday

On Sunday we did both services. The church had a potluck in between them. It was very good fellowship, helped us to get to know everyone, and the food was delicious!

There was a guy's group, a girl's group, a trumpet quartet, a piano solo, a piano duet, a vocal solo, and two choir songs. These were split between the two services. Pastor Estep preached for both services as well.
The first lizard!
