Portugal 2019 Mission Trip
Bom dia from Portugal!
Our team has arrived safely with no travel complications and has settled into our hostel for the week. The first flight was 11 hours long and brought us from 5:50 pm LA time to 1:30 pm Madrid, Spain time. Then we took a connecting flight into Lisboa, or Lisbon as we English-speakers call it, arriving at 4:00 pm.
After we collected our bags, we met Johnathon Shoemaker at the airport and split up into cars to drive to their church. Once there we started decorating for VBS, putting safari animals and scenery around the room, seeing the space we had up work with, and planning how to use it best for VBS. We also met up with the rest of the Shoemakers and their team including Israel and Sarah Quintani.
VBS starts tomorrow morning! We currently know of 26 kids signed up. Pray that everything will go smoothly and that we can continue to learn how to be flexible when details don’t quite work out how we planned.
