Neighbor Stories: South Dakota 2016 (Continued)


Another beautiful day on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation with highs in the mid-80s and lows in the low 60s.

After 2 days of hard work, we are really hitting our stride with great work from all of the teams and great fellowship within our team and with our friends at CRYP.

After spending the first few days in the Art Park, the Work Team shifted gears to painting projects, with one group cleaning and power washing the entrance to the Teen Center,

while another group focused on painting the hallways in the Youth Center.

The Food Team continued its amazing efforts feeding dinner to over 85 people.

The Activities Team out did itself with decorations

and activities based on the movie, Finding Nemo, which attracted over 50 kids. (Sorry Dory, we did not even know you were lost when we started planning activities for this summer.)

The best loved activity of the day, however, was "Shaving Cream Twister" (which was actually leftover from the Tangled activities yesterday).

Day 3 officially ended with a wonderful devotion presented by Jack and Tammy Doran.

Reticent to let a good thing end, however, the younger members of our team stayed-up until the wee hours of the morning playing a spirited game of Uno.

We feature 2 haikus for Day 3 both reflecting on the feeling of family that has grown among the members of our team:

The tears are falling

But our smiles sneak from behind

We are family now

Presented by Olivia Herring

Share dinner with friends

Love, laughter and trust tasted

That was it for Day 3.

God's Blessings from South Dakota
