Day 2 - Sunday
After a cool shower (no hot water but it still feels great!) last night we woke to a delicious 7 a.m. breakfast. After that we joined the CCCD students and staff for chapel. It was totally done in sign language from the singing to the preaching. But luckily we had our translator, Charles Stores, with us. It was inspiring to see the deaf community worshiping our Lord. After chapel we shuttled out to Bay Life Baptist Church. That was another great experience. We were seated with about 60-80 people in a room a little bit bigger than the mixed adults Sunday school classroom (or the size of two average master bedrooms). We had a great Father's Day sermon encouraging dads to show up for their wives and children and be the leader to help them thorough life's chaos.
Then we hustled back to campus for lunch and went out to the beach for some fun in the sun. There were some fun inflatables for some to play on while the less adventuresome found a seat to relax in and a shade tree to sit under. One inflatable was about 59 feet away from shore and was like a mountain you could climb up and then slide off. Some also rented snorkels and we saw some pretty exotic marine life there. Beautiful fish were all over the place!
Kemp and Kateleigh's flight came in today and we met up with them at the beach. They had some delays, which could have been a bigger problem, but they adjusted their flight and God brought them to us right on time. They had to come a day late because Kateleigh was a Junior Marshall in her school’s graduation ceremonies yesterday.
And now it's 9 p.m. Sunday. We've had another great meal, group devotion and are ready to begin work tomorrow after breakfast. 9 p.m. also means I need to get to my room so I gotta go. Talk to you later. Thank you everyone for your prayers. And please pray for the Daniel family. Jeffery Daniel is the campus manager here and he and his family of 6 children are passing around a stomach bug.
