While we were on our Spring Break trip to the beach, Logan and Morgan were on a little trip of their own. They went to Chicago with their church's college group.
Because they were chaperones, they didn't have to pay for anything! Well, they had to pay for some of their food on their "free" days...but they didn't have to pay for their transportation up there, OR the food they ate when they were with the group.
The rode an Amtrak train to Chicago. Logan and Morgan were so excited! As a Mom, I was excited that they weren't driving...OR riding in church vans...all the way to Chicago. Their college minister was 2 tickets short of having a whole "car" to themselves, so he bought those 2 tickets so the whole group could be together.
When they arrived to board the train, they apparently "didn't know there was going to be this big group that wanted to stay together," even tho the college minister had the paperwork. They ended up having to be in some sort of "observation car," and it was kind of cramped and uncomfortable until they got to St. Louis, where they added a new car. And then all was good.
Logan and Morgan don't travel anywhere where they aren't prepared with a list of things they want to see/do/eat. They watch the travel channel and the food channel...they had a plan.
Most of the mornings, they had some free time...so they split up into groups and went sightseeing. They tried to see as much as they could on a short amount of time. After lunch, they came back to the church, and set things up for the after-school program they were helping with. Logan and Morgan both had a blast doing that.
They also had worship services at the church, and did some other ministry work.
They had so much fun, and they felt safe the whole time. I am so glad they have a heart for missions.
