Fold Day 2 and 3

Posted: June 13, 2018 by keystoneyouth in The Fold

We spent the past two days doing two main jobs: staining and wood chipping. Half of our group spent time staining decks, stairs, and the front of the school building while the other half spent time chopping up tree branches and sending them through a shedder in an effort to clear out an area for a parking lot. The team has worked extremely well together and incredibly hard over the past couple days! Wednesday is often one of the hardest days because everyone starts to hit a breaking point where they feel tired and worn down. It’s great to have a day off tomorrow to look forward to and rest a little more before finishing up on Friday.

We also got to spend more time with the students and staff here at the Fold over the past couple days. This evening we had a cookout and bonfire with all the students and staff and got to hear some of them share their testimonies. It was good to hear the ways that God is working in the lives of teens who come here, but it was also neat to hear how God has worked in the lives of the staff during their time at the Fold. We’ve been able to spend more time with staff and students then other years which has helped us to get a better picture of what actually happens at the Fold on a regular basis.

I’ve been really impressed with this team. They love to serve and they work hard. But they also love God and have been quick to talk about the ways they are seeing Him at work this week. One of my highlights has been the nightly prayer times after our daily debrief. This group is quick to praise God and pray to Him with almost everybody jumping in. I’ve walked away each night encouraged by what God is doing and excited for the rest of the week.
