Portland Mission Trip

It’s kind of hard to blog about a trip that I wasn’t on. I am thankful to my husband, who faithfully took pictures and sent them, though! I asked my girls, as well as my husband if they wanted to “guest blog.” They said no. So here is my recap without the fun details!

To begin, I really think this should be called an adventure trip more than a mission trip. Lots of fun and bonding!

Day 1: Drive to Portland

A stop at Multnomah Falls.

Day 2: Beach Day

Day 3: Minister to the homeless in Portland, sharing Jesus and donuts.

Food trucks and more bonding games. (Kids were thrilled to get boba again!)

Day 4: Rock climbing and repelling

(Side note: Kids were pretty exhausted this day after camping under the stars, only to be woken up by sprinklers at 2am! Apparently, they did surprisingly well despite their exhaustion!)

Jumping in the river to cool off after rock climbing!

Day 5: River rafting

Back home, we spent one day at the lake, had friends over, went to see “Peter Rabbit 2,” and went out to dinner to give the littles their own sense of adventure. Still, my sweet boy asked one night, “Mom… can you pray for me? I am feeling jealous of their trip.” Of course, sweet boy!

The girls and Daniel came home sun-kissed, dirty, exhausted, and full of joy from their incredible adventure.

I love the color orange, summer fruit, crisp fall evenings, snow-covered mountains, and spring flowers. I LOVE my Jesus, my family, and my home... all things craft-related, cooking, and creating make me smile. You can often find me coloring on my walls with chalk, waltzing through Trader Joe's looking for the monkey with my little ones, dancing through our house to blasting worship music, or blogging while sipping coffee.
