Tradition has it that the van we take on our Mission trip must break down at some point! This year we were just one hour away from our Mission site in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We are all excited about being here and look forward to our ministries in this community.

Today started off with a good breakfast and then we met with Brittany, the director of “The Cove” ministry. She shared with us her vision for sharing Christ with their community. Next we went into the sanctuary for a prayer walk before church. This beautiful 100 year old traditional church is going through some difficult times, but are coming up with some untraditional ways to share Christ with their community.

Riding up on the Duquesne Incline was an experience in itself but when you got to the top , the view of Pittsburgh was breathtaking. Our group spent time praying over the city and enjoying the view.

Brittany, the director of “The Cove” ministry was so excited that God had sent a trailer and a team of Missionaries from Ohio (that’s us) to help her move all her belongings to the parsonage on this exact move in day! Isn’t God good!

Today’s bible story was Joseph and the coat of many colors. Hannah did a great job sharing the flannel graph story.

Tonight everyone seems at home with the kids we are ministering to at the Heights. Jen fit right in with her little friends at the meal.

North Side Common Ministries helps homeless men have a place to stay at night and helps them find jobs and housing. They also have a food distribution ministry, (one of the largest in Pennsylvania), and they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. We helped in the kitchen prepare lunch, painted two rooms, and worked in food distribution area, as well as walk the pet dog Ann.

After a good nights sleep we continued our Recreation Day with a picnic at Point State Park. This is where 3 Rivers join at one point. Allegheny River and Monongahela River unite to form the Ohio River

So proud of this group of kids. You are willing to give your time, use your talents and be used outside of your comfort zone, all for the glory of God. And pretty proud of the leaders as well who were willing to give and sacrifice for this mission. Praying for you all to be used in a mighty way. Praying for safety. And praying Gods blessings all over this trip for everyone involved.
