Our first day on mission started with trash pick up in Bell Town! Thanks to Coastline church we were able to organize our team to cover and clean up lots of ground before lunch! We also took this time to pray over the city and the people of Seattle.

We were super excited to help out our host church with their cleaning today! Washing windows and vacuuming chapels kept us busy this afternoon. We’ve had some great conversations and interactions with the staff of our host church and the people who live here in Seattle. Super awesome day on mission!

A few of us today got to sort donations at a warehouse for Union Gospel Mission! We had an awesome time getting to know the awesome staff and giving them a hand with clothing and linen donations.  We loved being able to spend the whole day with them and pray for the warehouse before we left.
