For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son [John 3:16]
On this trip I have seen unlimited love and sacrifice from our hosts, as well as our teammates.
From our hosts:
Welcome to our church, sleep anywhere, dinner will be ready at 6:00; Welcome to our house, I will take anyone that wants to go skiing out on my boat; The church is providing lunch, dinner and breakfast for everyone while you are here; We are providing free boat tours of the city; Enjoy our facilities, and here is a donation to your cause; Our family is here to take you around to every bike shop in town for shopping and/or repairs; Hop in our car, we’ll take you to the mall, Target, wherever you would like or need to go; Just bring your laundry down, we will wash all your clothes for you; Help yourself to any of the food or beverages here, don’t mind those price tags, they are free for you.
From our Fuller Center family:
Let me clean up your bike for you; No, you go ahead and use the last of the milk, I can eat something else; I brought down your bags for you; Go ahead, you can shower first; I don’t mind sleeping over there, you take the carpeted area; I’ll pay for the taxi ride into town; I already swept the floor, I saw you were busy preparing to leave; Your laundry is sorted and folded, here’s your stack; Lets mark this area as hazardous, so the other riders can avoid it; Do you need any sunscreen, here use mine; let me help you take out the trash; I brought extra (*insert any item here) please use some of mine.
