Our Weekend In Atlanta

This weekend the above-pictured group from our church were volunteering in Lawrenceville, GA, at the Operation Christmas Child processing center.  This picture was taken the last night after we had worked five hours.  We were tired.  But we managed to smile for the picture.   

On the second night, these four ladies folded over 1100 Operation Christmas Child shirts.  And the crazy thing is they enjoyed it!  By the way, the girl who looks so *happy* in the back was boasting an Ole Miss lead, wouldn't last. 

And here's our menfolk working hard.  Well, they had been working hard anyway. 

 I learned a few things on this trip.  First, when you decide to drive downtown Atlanta on a route you've never taken before, be sure and look for the signs pointing you in the right direction instead of looking at the skyline, Olympic flame, etc.  You can get going in the wrong direction fast.   

Second, The Varsity is a great place to eat.  If you are ever in Atlanta, try it out.  The experience is one you'll not forget. 

Third, and perhaps most importantly, I learned (again) that I love Operation Christmas Child.  Along those same lines, I learned (again) that I love serving Christ alongside my brothers and sisters in Christ. 

Thanks for another great trip!
