So let us not grow weary in doing what is right. Galatians 6:9
Watchword for the Week of July 3, 2016 from
The Moravian Daily Texts
Yesterday on their mission adventure, The Twenty learned that patience, persistence and pliability are great qualities...and in the end, pizza rules.
When one of their intended mission work sites could not accommodate them yesterday, The Twenty found themselves spontaneously pursuing other service options. Pastors Mike and Tracy worked diligently to come up with alternatives, some of which kept work crews close to Great Kills Moravian Church, and another which sent a group over the Verrazano Narrows Bridge to Brooklyn where Lutheran Social Services handed out paint brushes.
After offering their labor, the reunited group headed to the beach for an afternoon of sunshine, shelling and splashing around. And finally, to conclude the day, the hungry missionaries made their way to an authentic New York pizzeria where they sampled 13 different pies and left with 32 extra slices for midnight snacking!
Today, The Twenty will be hoofing their way to the train station which will take them to the Staten Island Ferry which will take them to Manhattan where they will take the subway to Moravian Open Door where they will spend much of the day in service.
Later in the day, they will be visiting the 9/11 Memorial.
