I’m finally done packing! In about two hours I will embark on a northward journey to the great white north! I and a team of nine others will be going to Toronto, ON with a program called “PLIA.” It stands for Putting Love Into Action and is put on by Dordt. It is student led, so we are adult-free for 9 days!
If I understand correctly, we will be working with kids in an inner city program. One characteristic of PLIA is that you really don’t know what will happen or what you will be doing until you arrive. I am looking forward to it greatly. We have a great team and it’s nice to be generous with my time and gifts sometimes.
Please pray for humility, safety, unity among the members of all the teams and an open reception from the kids there. Many of them have rough pasts and are just rough people or understandingly have trust issues.
See you next weekend!
P.S. A great perk is a day off sometime in the middle of the work. I think we will be visiting Niagara falls.
