I'm so excited about this opportunity my 10 year old has that i just had to share it with you all. Our church is having a mission trip for children entering 4th and 5th grades and my son was more then happy to jump on this experience. The children are going to a low-economic area of Belle Glade (a city about 45 miles from where we live) with the purpose of helping others. They will be stuffing backpacks full of school supplies for the children who otherwise would not be able to afford them. I know this will be a great experience for Johnny because he is my boy who doesn't understand that some people don't have the things we do and sometimes we take what we have for granite. Some people in Belle Glade have no air conditioning. You drive by and see doors and windows open in these apartments and it feels like 100 degrees outside. This is a perfect chance for him to see and appreciate what he has and to give back. These children are going to be so happy to just have a new backpack and new supplies. All the children leave Wednesday morning on a bus so please keep them in your prayers and I will be sure to post some pictures of this great mission trip.
