I love road trips. I love leaving early in the morning with a Timmy's in hand and hitting the road for adventures known or unknown. I have always loved road trips. I like seeing new places, especially out of the way places and I like meeting new people. For me the planning and the getting there is just as much a part of the whole journey as the destination.
Today, I am packing for a special road trip. Jason and I leave before the sun is up on Friday morning to head south for a mission trip. Our final destination is just outside of Memphis, Tennessee. Can you imagine a better mission trip for two people who love music? I am hoping that there will be just a little time to hear some local musicians. Maybe we will even be working with some! If you know of any great places I would love to hear about them.
Our church usually has a mission trip twice a year and this is the first time that I have been able to go (I usually stay home with the kids) so I can't wait. I am not exactly sure what kind of serving that we will be doing down there but we will be helping to build a building at a camp! Have I ever built a building before? No, not even close but I am willing to do what I can. I am not much of a handy girl but I can sing tunes as we work and I am great at cleaning up and fetching tools for people who know what they are doing! I am looking forward to seeing what God has in store.
As I said though, today I am packing, doing lots of laundry so I have something to pack and organizing and packing some more.
