Just Good Times...

Assisting in Extreme Build in McCreary County, Kentucky was a beautiful learning experience that is still staying with me two and a half weeks into this challenging and wonderful TFH Road Trip. As we ventured to the Appalachia for the first time for me we were met with lush forests and rolling mountains that were on display for us to marvel in God’s glory.

Orientation was AMAZING! Even though I did miss like the first two days of it.  I got to Birmingham on Thrusday just in time for dinner.  I got to meet up with my friends that I know from Clemson as well as meet my team members that I will be working with this summer.  After dinner we went back to the house that we were staying at and finished up doing the Myers Briggs activity.  That was interesting...
