KOH2RVA: Day 189

2013-03-10 10.11.11

Do you remember the story I told you about the second grade Sunday school class that was having a bake sale to raise money to buy orthopedic shoes for a woman named Cheryl? Well, last Sunday they had a party to celebrate their success, and invited Cheryl, and gave her the money to buy the shoes. They also let her hold the cake for this picture, and if you look closely you can see that it says “KOH2RVA.”

This was one of those moments when the Kingdom of Heaven came to Richmond, Virginia, and when a dear woman named Cheryl felt the love of Christ through the love and hard work of these second graders and their teachers.

It’s moments like these that make the whole mission trip worthwhile.

  1. And all the people said “AMEN!!!” What a delightful story! Each day, I think you won’t be able to match, much less top, this one, and then you do — with the help of some wonderful First Baptist missionaries!

  2. I’m a proud mommy of one of these amazing second-graders! They all did such a great job and they learned so much about giving to others and loving unconditionally.
    — And the Angels rejoiced!
