The Eastern Shore

  • Gayton Youth Mission Trip 2012

and all of a sudden it hit me. I was going to be shooting a wedding all day Friday, all day Saturday and then getting up at 9am on Sunday to head to the Eastern Shore for our annual Mission Trip with our youth group! So what did that mean for me on Thursday night? EVERYTHING for the trip needed to be done. Packing, laundry, charging batteries, clearing cards, cleaning out the car, pre blogging for 5 days! YIKES! I have to admit that pre-trip, I was a bit stressed and I wondered “Why do I do this to myself?! This is just CRAZY!”.  No one is going to be in a good mood with 2 hours of sleep and then having to drive 4 hours behind a charter bus!

I left sunday afternoon and arrived in Novinger, Missouri at 2am on Monday morning.  The rest of the team, 71 teenagers and 21 adults, had been there since Saturday and they were ready to start helping the Novinger community. What you need to understand is that Novinger is a town of 534 people.  That’s it. We could walk from one end of the town to the other…. easily. The people of Novinger
