We arrived in Roseville, OH last night and got settled in. This morning we attended church at St. Paul United Methodist Church and afterwards the church was gracious to serve us lunch! We enjoyed getting to eat with them and getting to know them!

Tonight we kicked off our first night of VBS at the church! We are so excited to do children’s ministry this week! We had singing, games, crafts, and Bible story time! We had around 35 kids tonight and are praying more come out tomorrow!

This morning, a group of us went to Trulight Ministries, a place where they serve hot breakfast every day to people in need in the community. We helped to prepare the breakfast and serve the people. This ministry is a huge blessing to the community and we are blessed to be able to help out!

After breakfast, we helped clean, sort, and load items to take to the warehouse where they will keep donation items to be able to provide to the community! It was great teamwork!

Tonight was our last night of VBS! It was such a bittersweet night, but we are so grateful for the opportunity to love on these kids! We got to give a Bible to every kid and even got to give every kid a backpack with school supplies in it! We will remember the impact these kids had on us forever!
