And the youngest one said, "We had chicken for dinner, and we ate too much!"
I'm sure it didn't have everything to do with it, but it's definitely a possibility.

That evening, a few of us went to Signal Hill - took pictures of the city.
We hiked down Signal Hill - was able to get several shots: Fort Amherst and the waves crashing into the bank.
August 8th - Regatta Day:
That evening, we played Spades: Jackie & me vs Terry & Tiffany. And one of the quotes of the week, Terry said, "I'd rather play cards than eat."
Topsail beach for some backyard bible club. While waiting for people to show up (the weather was yucky the entire time - it was the misting rain) - some of us had a little fun.
Afterwards, our van went to Fort Amherst - the first lighthouse in Newfoundland.
We attended church at the St. John Cathedral(Anglican). It was beautiful! It was the first church of Newfoundland.
Our flight was delayed an hour and a half, because pilots who fly into Newfoundland are those who fly out - and they have to have an 8 hour clearance from flight to flight. Meaning, the pilots flew in around 1:30am that morning.
We hit some turbulence on the way to Newark. Had a slight delay in Newark, but we still made it to Nashville on time at 4pm.
It was a great trip. Our mission was fulfilled - we spoke to those we came in contact with, and God will take care of the rest.
"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit..." Matthew 28:19

It's going to take my a little bit of time to go through pictures and tell you more about the trip. I'll start working on it this week and hopefully have a better description of the week for you. However, I'm currently posting the photos on Facebook, so that you can see what we did throughout the week.
Thank you to all of you - your thoughts and prayers this week!

It's not going to be bright, but definitely early! We have to be at the church at 4am. We're flying over half of the U.S. (Houston, TX, Newark, NJ), then to St. John's, Newfoundland) - only to get there are 11pm! There's a two and a half hour time difference. All day of flying and delays! Woohoo!
Plan on taking lots of pictures, so I'll have plenty to post when I return! Have a good week!

Here's Samantha - wearing all of the fireman's gear in 95 degree heat! She's one of the occupational therapist.
This is Kelly. She's a survivor of Stephens-Johnson Syndrome. She has participated by being one of the counselors for several years!
LifeFlight made their appearance! The kids were super excited.
I'll close this post with a quote that I think sums up a burn survivor - a true survivor.
"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep, loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
