Philly Blitz with Noah

Noah Philly Blitz

Last month Noah (my almost ten year old) and I went on a weekend mission trip with our church’s children ministry to Philadelphia with the Philadelphia Project. It was a pretty amazing weekend; the age group was third through fifth grade, which was a first for me. Noah was really excited for the trip and even with his broken arm never held back from jumping in and working.

We spent the weekend in a combination of great worship times put together by Philadelphia Project, education about inner city Philly, and serving on various work sites. Noah and I were were with a group working to gut a room so that future groups could come in and do the actual remodeling. Which meant we spent the day scraping, pulling down a ceiling, cleaning, and generating a lot of dust. It was pretty impressive to see what a group of nine to eleven year olds can accomplish when they’re given the opportunity!

All in all, it was a great trip. It was fun to build some memories with Noah as well. Out of my four sons, the only one left who hasn’t gone on a mission trip with me yet is Zachary! But we’ll let him get a little older, first …
