Day Six - Letters from Home

At this point in the trip we are all a bit tired and hoping to have the energy and patience to get through the next two days! We eagerly hope to get everything done in the homes we are working on. So, how do we stay motivated? What puts a smile on our faces every night? Your letters! One hundred nineteen letters were written by many of you just for us. Each night we get to open one and we want you to know just how much we appreciate every single one of them. These letters helped us to remember that we are loved and that we are making a difference. 

As the week has gone by, we can’t help but think of this scripture from Colossians 3:12 -
“You are the people of God; he loved you and chose you for his own. So then, you must clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” Even if you weren’t physically here on the trip, you were a big part in helping us live this out. Thank you for taking the time to write them. Thank you for praying for us and please don’t stop!
