MCT18 Seattle, July 6-15, was a wonderful mission trip that also included some amazing sightseeing adventures. We saw the majesty and glory of God’s creation as well as the hardships of the condition of people who were homeless and in great need.
Much work was done to try to help through the Union Gospel Mission organization by helping children whose parents were in the transition process of getting off the streets to helping with sorting and organizing donations to the warehouse to search and rescue providing food, beverage, hygiene products and clothing in the homeless “communities”.
We were fortunate to see and sing in several churches, three nursing homes and the transition center called Hope Place. These students shared God’s love especially with the residents of the nursing homes and transition center.
Dr. Seth had the privilege of playing several different brands of organs and sharing them with us.
Sightseeing was also included in our adventure.
Of the sightseeing excursions, my favorite was the Chihuly Garden and Glass. What creative talent was on display there.
We also went to the top of the Space needle, took a harbor boat tour, experienced the Museum of Pop Culture and went to the aquarium.
Not being a foodie, some of our meals were quite the adventure! I ate an entire meal, including rice, using only chopsticks and that was a first for me! I just didn’t ask many questions about what I was actually eating!!!
God was so gracious to us by giving us beautiful weather every day we were there! I NEVER needed to use an umbrella! However, my jacket came in handy many times but that was very pleasant in July.
Parents of these students, you have wonderful children who have learned and continue to learn how to be polite and kind. Thank you for teaching them. They were a blessing to me! – Peggy King Bobbitt
