Update by Lauren Schulze

Sorry for not blogging yesterday, we couldn't connect to the wifi and we were/still are very exhausted. In the morning, we went to Mt. Davidson and we got to see God's incredible creation, had an inspiring devotion,and the boys almost died trying to play on a dead tree which almost snapped in half. Also, we went to Fisherman's Wharf and several of us had a sourdough bread bowl with some fresh clam chowder. Then, we went to Gharadeli Square and had many many free samples of chocolate. The weather was perfect and we had a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Later that night we arrived at YouthWorks after several hours in traffic. While in the car, Pastor Beyer FaceTimed us about a million times trying to "get ahold of Jim," but secretly we thought he was just checking up on us. Today we started our first service site missions. We were split up into groups and each of us were touched by the people around us, even though we all had different first experinces. I got to work at All Nations and got to hang out will K-1st graders. These kids have touched my heart and it is only the first day. We are about to go on our first evening activity and get to work off all of the sugar and starbucks that we have had to keep us awake. God is good all the time, and all the time God is good. More to come... Lauren
