"Wonderstruck" Bible study

Ladies, do you ever feel like you're going through the motions of faith? Sometimes we do and say the right things, but our hearts are far from God. We lose our sense of holy awe. In Wonderstruck, Margaret Feinberg invites you to toss back the covers, climb out of bed, and drink in the fullness of life God intended. Join us for this seven-week Bible and DVD study that will remind you what it means to awaken to wonder, every day.

Raleigh County Day 3

When we first found out that we were painting a deck in our mission site, we were a bit skeptical. We didn't exactly know what we were doing, and we thought we wouldn't like it. But, over the next few days, we got to know our homeowner better, and we found ourselves enjoying our work and bonded with each other in the process. Our homeowner, David Holdrin, was a coal miner for twenty-eight years until he got into a dangerous accident in 1999. He suffered from fatal injuries and lost forty percent of his lungs due to black lung disease.

Raleigh County Day 2

Today in our small group we went to Energy Express, and played multiple games of octopus tag. We got to build relationships with the kids.  Later that morning we read to the kids and got to know them a little better. Before we left we ate lunch with the kids. Later that afternoon after playing with the kids we got to do yard work for a kind and humble lady. One group weeded the sidewalk and cleared up all the leaves. Another group trimmed a big bush, and packed the branches in a bag. In the middle of working at the lady's house, some people found a hornet's nest.

Raleigh County Day 1

Today my small group headed out to Raleigh County Kids Club. Before we left the RCCAA building where we were staying, we had an orientation to introduce to us what our experience at Kids Club would be like. During the orientation, I found myself making many assumptions. Not only about the kids but about the staff. When we pulled in to the Kids Club building I saw kids from age 6-12 running around the blacktop with grins across their faces.
