Mission Move-In -- Day 1

It's that time of year again -- MOVE-IN!

This is when we, as a church, perform an in-town "mission" trip, by spending our days serving others by moving in freshman into their dorms.

Today was the first day of move-in.

Below are some pics from move-in and the pizza party on the drillfield we had tonight.

When you have this many people, you can get a whole pile of stuff in just one load!

A pastor + a high heel shoe tree = my favorite picture of the day!
(Doesn't Jim look thrilled to carry these up some stairs?)

Amy towards the end of the day -- when all of us were feeling the burn.

Pizza, pizza everywhere... we polished off 75 tonight.

And last but not least, Kristal, who is doing her first mission move-in as a staff member! That's right, she's done raising support and is now working full-time with nlcf. :)

Tomorrow morning, we'll get up and do it again. I guess that means I should get some sleep! :)

Hey wen!
I don't know if the story got back to you - but the DJ here on 99.1 in Va Beach was telling a story about moving his kid into VT. He said, "Man, I was totally not looking forward to moving all that crap up the stairs, but then this group of Christian kids showed up and moved him in for us!"
Your ministry extends far and wide!
Pretty sweet huh?!
