Gleaning in the Fields

On Monday, I took some day campers from Vacation
Bible School out to an organic farm in King William
county, Virginia, to glean tomatoes for the poor.

It was about 114 degrees.

The kids were awesome.

Later in the week they all slept in boxes outside in
Reveille UMC's Garth, to gain empathy for the homeless.

Lynsey's Zoo

Lynsey moved to a new apartment and her new roommate has a cool cat. More interesting was a small visitor they have now trapped.

Hannah Takes Manhattan

Hannah, Luke, Zarina, Joshua, Grace, Rinat and Sholpan are now back from a week in NYC, where they experienced many things they would never see in Richmond, fed the homeless, stocked food pantries, sorted baby clothes, did Meals on Wheels, sang and danced in their production of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat, and wandered freely through the city with the help of some pretty polished chaperones and a really complex subway system.

Special thanks to Dwayne, Reveille UMC's Youth Pastor, for spending so much time with Rinat, making two trips to the ER, enduring sleepless nights, and generally taking care of everyone else on the trip, too. Get some sleep, Dwayne; you've earned it...

Who's the Blonde?

Hmm. That's not Thompson colored hair.

Wow! It's our pal, Carlee!

Susan was so happy to see Carlee.

Lynsey, too.

Big kids...

Come back soon VCS
