Day 5 & 6
Yesterday we drove an hour and a half west to Lake Tahoe and then to add to that we hiked about a half hour down. It was all worth it in the end. We got to see pastor Andrew and others screaming like a little girls after running into the lake. After we got done hanging around the lake for a few, we took the long up-hill hike back that nobody was looking forward to. After we got to the top we ate lunch and enjoyed the gorgeous views that God created. While staring off the mountain we all thought how could one not believe in our God. When we all got done eating we went to shop around at some stores in South Tahoe. After the trip to Tahoe we came home, relaxed and after that we played the youth favorite, Mafia.
Then today (Sunday), the day the whole trip had been leading up too, we went to Living Hope church at the McKinley Arts & Culture Center. After helping set up we had the main service. It was exciting to sing and worship with many believers, now meeting in a building, not a house. After the service, some of us went to a "growth class" or our equivalent to Sunday school and a few of us helped with the kids. When church ended we helped pack things up then went home. Most of the group when to their share groups and then we ended the evening fellowshipping with the Gleisers and Tilsons at In and Out. Although we had a great week we are all looking forward to heading home tomorrow.
See you all soon, Love Alivia & Hayden
