After 9 hours on the road with many gas, snack and fast food stops, our three 15-passenger vans and one van/trailer combo arrived at our hotel just past 6pm for night one in Kansas City. Thankfully, it was a pretty uneventful drive! We ate some pizza, unloaded our bags and checked into our rooms.
Most of our team loaded back into a couple vans to drive into the city (some stayed back to swim at the hotel). We visited "the plaza," an area of KC full of shops, restaurants, sculptures, and street performers. A couple of students enjoyed a "skyrocket shake" at a Winstead's.
Tomorrow morning, we will check out of the hotel and eat breakfast with our ministry staff before attending the services at our partner church, Bridge of Hope Community Church.
We are thanking God for safe travels, and looking forward to a great week of ministry!
