Every Saturday, volunteers converge on We Will Go. Sometimes it is a church group, other times a family or even an individual. Most groups come on a Saturday morning and they do a variety of service tasks such as organizing in the clothes shop, packing up canned good bags, cleaning up empty lots, and weeding the flowerbeds. The whole We Will Go ministry family joins in to lead the volunteers as well as work alongside them. Even the youngest missionary kids get in on the servant action.

Most Saturdays, we wrap up the work by 1:00 and have the rest of the afternoon to do family stuff or get our own housework and errands taken care of. Some Saturdays, the service and ministry goes on all day long.

This was one of those times.

After a lunch break of sandwiches and some time of planning, the Florence-Richland Homeschool Group's teen club arrived at Faith House for an afternoon of service and fellowship.

Fellow missionary Levi, one of our neighbors who frequently attends We Will Go ministry events, and I shared about the ministry. Levi also told them about how God brought him here to We Will Go.

Then it was time to do a tour of Base 1 and prayer walk to Base 2 while we picked up trash along the way.

Once we got to Base 2, Laura and Jay Sims shared their God story with the group including a lot of details about their time in Mozambique last year.

Finally, it was time to take the requisite group picture and send everyone on their way after one of the teenaged girls admitted that being at We Will Go wasn't half as scary as she thought it was going to be, in fact, most of them seemed to have a really good time while here.

All of us --- the homeschoolers, WWG missionaries, and two extra friends. #wewillgo #homeschoolers #lifeatwewillgo #coheastreet #innercityministry #missionaries #missionarykids #smiles

But more than a good time, I pray that God spoke to each of them and revealed something about Himself and His plans for their lives. Who knows what seeds planted today will grow into something much bigger than those small plastic bags filled up with trash. That was the results that we could see with our eyes. The Lord can see much deeper and further than just that.
