Here’s a short post about our trip to Salt Lake City, Park City, and Ogden, Utah.
Our trip there was to serve at and through Redemption Church as our local church has “adopted” them while we are also seeking direction and provision for our own church plant in the area.
We have already been in contact with their pastor and his wife. We have grown fast friends with them and our children love each other. We have such a burden for this area and are prayerfully thoughtful of this place on a daily basis.
This was Drake’s first time to fly! He loved it and maybe loved the escalator and sky link more!
He loved the block parties where we reached out to the community. There were hot dogs, chips, cotton candy, snocones, popcorn, bounce houses/slides, other children, and an incredible park with a spray/splash park! His favorite new friend, Gia made it all the more fun!
We also enjoyed a visit to Utah Olympic Park! We watched people ski into the pool! Drake squealed with delight watching them fly high and flip!
Drake watched his dadda serve by leading, organizing, debriefing, and most of all he watched him serve by building relationships. Our team helped host these block parties, canvased the neighborhoods to invite the community, painted some at the theater the church is using, walked through temple square, and much more ministry that cannot be contained or described by words.
We will be praying for this overarching mission as several are committed to reaching SLC. It was a trip we’ll always remember and look forward to making happen again.
