We were able to do our drama performance “Kickin’ it Old School” twice while we were there; once at Stanley’s home church, First Baptist Mineral Wells, and again at the state park. I was so proud of these kids who literally spent hours learning the songs and motions and skits to make this a real production. This was the same drama by Go Fish we used for drama camp a few weeks ago but some of these kids didn’t do drama camp so they had to learn all this in just 2 days. Incredible! They did awesome and I’m so impressed with their poise and perseverance even when crowds were less than expected.
In addition to these missions activities we did a lot of team building activities. Some say this might have been God’s plan for this whole trip – to teach this group how to be a team. We played games that taught us to work things out without giving up, work together as a team, and trust others to not let us down. And sometimes we just played…in the lake, volleyball, hiking, canoeing, etc. Although this trip had more challenges than most that I’ve ever been on (lack of audience, bus troubles, a few squabbles), it had a purpose in God’s plan and I’m glad we went.
