Day 7 seven started out great with biscuit and gravy, sausage links and fruit. We fixed our lunches and headed back to Mission Arlington.
When we arrived at Mission Arlington, we got our assignment and we headed to Garden Park Apartments to pass out snacks and drinks to the people who lived there. We divided into groups and went door to door passing out food and also letting people know there is a bible study group that meets on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at the apartment playground. After we finished passing out snacks, we headed back to Mission Arlington.
We unloaded our empty boxes, took our bathroom breaks and headed to Arlington Plaza Senior Retirement Center to present our program to them. On the way there, we ate our lunches we fixed this morning after breakfast.
We arrived at Arlington Plaza and presented our condensed program to about 60 people. One thing that happened was when a lady sitting at a table noticed one of our students, Lane, coming towards her and she said he looked just like her son who was apparently killed in a car wreck years ago when he was Lane's age. She said when she saw him, it was like God speaking to her. Lane went and gave her a hug.
After we were done at Arlington Plaza, we started our site seeing tour with Bobby Miller since he is from this area. He took us to the Fort Worth Stockyards. There are shops, a museum, visitor center and they also do a cattle drive of longhorns down the street. That was pretty cool seeing those animals. After we finished at the stockyards, we went to Coopers BBQ restaurant. Let me tell you, that's some pretty good food! After we ate, we headed back to Oak Grove Baptist Church to finish our free time.
This has been a great week so far and now our traveling starts back in the morning. We will head to Star Baptist Church in Star, MS where we will stay the night.
Thanks for your prayers. Please continue those prayers for traveling mercies.
