 July 15, 2019

     I'm trying not to get too comfortable now that we've made it back from Kansas City late last night, because once the laundry's done and the bags are repacked, we are off to Virginia Beach this Sunday for our TeamEffort Mission Trip. The Uth is blessed to go and serve those in need in the Virginia Beach area. As we learned this past week to Love Well, we are more than ready to continue sharing the love of God and showing others what it means to Love God, Love Yourself, and Love Your Neighbor. Join us in prayer as we go and live out the story of the Good Samaritan and help our neighbors, near and far.
