D-Tour Update – Boundless Community

After a late night last night we were back at it again this morning to eat breakfast and get prepared for our service activity. Our service project was about 35 minutes away. Once we arrived at the service site the volunteers explained to us the project we would be working on. Our task for the day was to help build and stain a fence that was outside one of the buildings. We immediately got to work and were able to knock out the whole fence quick and efficiently.
After staining all morning we were getting hungry so we ordered Zaxby’s. We catered chicken tenders, salad, fries and cookies. After lunch we headed back to the retreat site where we were given over 2 hours of free time. In the free time people did various activities such as swimming, pickle ball, shopping, running, sleeping and socializing with others. After free time we made a quick transition into preparing for a fancy dinner. Everyone took time to get ready, we ate together and finished with great photos with the beautiful lake view.
Following dinner we changed clothes, met with our prayer partners, had s’mores and sung songs around the campfire and enjoyed our last night together. To wrap up a wonderful day we broke off into family groups. In these family groups we shared highlights, surprises and were very supportive with our prayers and words of affirmations about one another. We closed the night all 32 of us together talking, giggling and sharing our adventures we had together this week.
This trip was definitely one to remember. Please wish us safe travels as we make our journey back tomorrow!
