Today was my last day working here at the church for the summer. I started out this morning attending a small group bible study on the sermon this past Sunday. After that bible study I filled up the areas where I removed the mulch and filled them up with river rocks. For lunch today Alan, Joanna, Barbra, my mom, and I all went out to Tokyo to celebrate my last day on the job. After lunch me and Alan went to Walmart to get some more river rocks to finish the job. Then we came back to the church and finished filling the area with rocks. I have made some really good memories here at the church and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be able to work here this summer.

Today’s bible verse is Romans 8:28 “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” I am so grateful to have been able to work with some amazing people this summer and to learn so much from them. We all worked together through God and our love for him and I think we did some great things together. We were able to have some fun and work together while still serving the Lord. He has a purpose for all of us and he has a plan for everyone and a part of my plan was to work here this summer and work with some great people while also learning more about God and growing closer to him. I am so thankful to everyone that made working here this summer so great.
