Goodland Academy

Every year, our Adult Bible Study department does a big service project.  Last year, we went to Goodland Academy, and we had the best time!  This year, the group voted to go back to Goodland by an overwhelming majority.  We were so excited that our class' hearts were set on going back!  Last year, we did a TON of work around the campus, but did not get to spend as much time with the boys.  This year, our goal was to do both!  We repaired the siding on the chapel that was built in 1848, we mowed and did some landscaping, we held a sports camp for the boys, we built PVC pipe rocket launchers with the boys, ate lunch with the boys, rented a bounce house slide for the kids to all play on, and were able to leave each of the boys a $220 gift card to buy clothes and shoes.  The boys were all so polite and thanked each of us individually.  They blessed my heart with their response!  Such good kids...

I am so glad to be able to serve alongside of such an amazing group of Believers!  We had over 60 people (adults & children) that met at our church at 5:30 on a Saturday morning and drove 3 hours to love on this group of boys.  That is dedication!  It was such a great day in a wonderful place serving our perfect Savior!
