Summer Recap

(t-shirt crafts always a favorite )
Summer is never boring here at Friendship House. We registered 42 girls for the summer program, Up2HOPE. The girls were on a 7-week Voyage that took them all over the world - all 7 continents to be exact. Of course this was done via the air conditioned building at Baptist Friendship House ;)   The girls learned about other cultures, and even tasted some of the food from the different countries discussed. They learned about what ministry was like in the different areas of the world. They enjoyed crafts, games, problem solving tasks, preventative educational groups and Bible study. We appreciate all the prayers and support to make the summer possible. Our summer missionaries were awesome. Our girls loved getting to know and learning from them. The summer missionaries also loved learning from our girls. It was a great summer and we look forward to what God is going to do through out the next year.
(Anything with paint is always a hit, too!)

Please pray for our girls as they begin school. Some school have already started. Pray also for our Back-to-School Bash that will be next week. Continue to pray for the summer missionaries that served with us and around the world. Many will be returning to college. They have all experienced something others in their classes did not. The transition may be challenging as they have learned a great deal about what it means to be totally dependent on Christ.
