Tour 2009 - Day 5

Day 5 Tour 2009

After a restful night in our host homes, we braved the gathering storm (yet again) and assembled at Northside UMC to travel to Chatham, MA. Upon arrival, our fearless director praised the Lord for the let-up of the rain, only to have the heavens open upon us again! We enjoyed yet another soggy journey through quaint shops and saw the sights of this wonderful beach town. In lieu of miniature golf, we headed for the local (only) mall. There, some of us shopped, while others chose to snooze on the bus. We then came back to Northside UMC (a quite newly built) beautiful church, with a wonderfully warm and welcoming congregation. The area is so friendly that when Cathy D. and Sue C. went on a journey for ice and needed to pull over to re-program the GPS, a kind gentleman stopped in the pouring rain to ask if everything was OK. The hospitality has been overwhelming. We feasted on a wonderful pork barbeque dinner generously provided by Northside UMC, and some fantastic desserts. In spite of the weather, the kids remain optimistic and have really grown to look after and love one another. We are so proud of everyone!
