A Recap from Nick

Today we began the day early with breakfast at 7:30am - which is crazy for a teen during summer. I really enjoy the devotionals in the mornings. There's something about nature and the great scenery around here that makes me feel closer to God than ever.
We then headed down the street to begin our service project for the day. As hot and tiring as the work was, it was completely satisfying knowing we showed the love of God to the owners of the house we worked on. It was great meeting the local kids; and the language barrier makes it so much more fun.
Our group of people is fantastic. We exceeded our expectations in the work that was done and were running like a well-oiled machine out there.
After a long and exhausting day, we made our way over to the hot springs. We got to hang out, socialize, and RELAX. At dinner I had the chance to get to know the interns better (they're pretty awesome). We're all around the same age, so it's always nice to make new friends.
I can't wait to see what God does tomorrow.
