Mission Memphis

Both Firstborn and Twinkle Toes signed up with our church's youth mission week called Mission Memphis. They all slept at the church, then went out each day to serve the inner-city of Memphis. Here's where they set up beds. Hmmm, sleep well, girls!

Firstborn was assigned to work at an inner-city church by setting up donated items and creating a thrift store. She got to work with her cousin. It was fun for her and hard work, she said. It also inspired her to purge and clean out her room when we got home!!!

She also got to paint giant canvases for the church. They had foam behind them and would provide some sound blockage for an overflow room. She was in Pinterest heaven!

Twinkle Toes went on a different project. She served at Memphis Athletic Ministries and helped lead a VBS for inner-city African-American and Hispanic kids. She was in her element and did not want to leave! Mark my words...that girl will be running an orphanage some day. I felt the Lord put them both exactly where they are suited, and I was so proud of them!

And while they were gone for the week, we played a little!
Aunt K spoiling us again!
