A Long Day
After much anticipation we have finally left Helena for our trips. The day began by gathering at 4:15 AM to take students going to Rochester and Cinci to the airport. As I returned home to finish packing my own things and pick up the Kansas City students, I was told they barely had enough time to get through security and next year we need to leave more time. So I will mark my calendar now for 3:30 AM next year!
The Kansas City group left Helena at 7 AM and travels went really smoothly. We arrived in Denver and celebrated a birthday dinner with Katie Majerus at Ted’s Montana Grill where we had burgers. We are now settled in to our hotel and ready to drive all the way across Kansas tomorrow. During the trip the students have been asking Fred and Laura a lot about their experience last year and the closer we get the more anticipation they have for the week ahead.
During our drive we had a quick check in from both groups that they had arrived safely but experienced some turbulence along the way.
Thank you for following us this week and for your prayers for our experience. The more I travel with students for these trips the more I realize the importance of meeting people who are passionate about helping others and of getting an experience of building relationships and dedicating this time to service. We are very blessed to have these experiences.
