LAX on, LAX off
We just sent the CoEd team off, on their way back to LAX. They got off safely after a morning visiting Mosaic. It was a great church, and Dustin, the pastor, preached a good message from Colossians about being focused on God first, then marriage, then children and then work next. Sounds familiar....
The church meets in a roller skating rink, and is used almost all week long. Afterwards, had good time hanging with Brad and Paul at a local seafood restaurant. Once again, food was good, but sharing faith and life with them was better.
As we sent off the CoEd team, they knew they had done a good thing, with a week's worth of hard work behind them, and shared memories among them. We pray they have a safe and meaningful trip home. Just as Kyle had spoken a few nights ago, the mission began before they ever left L.A., and will hopefully not end.
It's odd to think that even as they fly, our church is just ending service back home, and the next Men's team will be flying out a few hours after the CoEd team lands. And we'll receive them in less than 24 hours.
We look forward to joining up with them.
