Memphis Day 2

Posted: July 18, 2018 by keystoneyouth in SOS Trip

Description:

Today was a hot one again. Around 2:00 the temperature was at 92 but felt like 105 because of the humidity. Add to that being on a roof with shingles and it made for instant sweat anytime you set foot on the roof. Our groups did a great job working through the heat either putting shingles on or prepping another part of the roof for shingles. Every evening is made up of some free time before dinner and then dinner is followed by chapel. Each week they bring in a different local pastor to speak each evening in chapel. This week are speaker has been a local pastor by the name of Robin. He’s been walking through the first couple chapters of Genesis so far showing us how it answers some of the big questions we have – like who we are, what our purpose is in life, and how we can know God personally. After chapel, we finished off the evening by driving to Chick-Fil-A and debriefing our day as a group over some milkshakes:)

Highlights:

  • Getting ice pops from a local church! There really is nothing better than an ice pop at 2:00 in the afternoon. It’s also really neat to see the partnerships that SOS has built with the local churches and the ways the churches support the ministry of SOS.
  • Sharing testimonies at lunch today. We spent our normal devotion time over lunch sharing our testimonies over lunch. Everyone opened up and shared the story of how they’ve became a Christian along with how they’ve grown and see God be faithful through some very difficult struggles in their lives.
  • Getting barbecueJA group of us went out for a pre-dinner trip to Central Barbecue. Memphis is famous for great Barbecue and the Nachos and Pulled Pork sandwiches did not disappoint!
