We have had a great first day in Baltimore! Everyone enjoyed hanging out on the plane and in the train out to our hotel. We had about a half mile walk from the train station to the hotel. This city is full of volleyball teams, cheer squads, and other groups of students. Even thought we were all wearing our bright yellow jog-a-thon shirts and rolling suitcases…we didn’t stand out too much thanks to the other groups.
After we found the hotel, they graciously agreed to watch our luggage while we headed off to grab a late lunch. We went to a local Italian restaurant right by the hotel at 2pm. It was an interesting place and the food was pretty good. It took a while since they aren’t used to late afternoon lunch crowds. We wrapped up our lunch around 4:30 and checked into the hotel.
We spent some time relaxing and getting settled and met back in the lobby at 6pm to head down to the Inner Harbor. While we were there, we saw some of the street performers, walked around the mall, ate dinner, and continued our quest to develop a heart for the people of this great city.
The evening closed out with a team meeting in the lobby to go over highlights for tomorrow and make sure we all know the plan. We prayed together and headed up to our rooms for an early night. Tomorrow we will worship with The Gallery Church of Baltimore at 9:30am. We are so excited about finally meeting the people we have been praying for since October!
That’s all for tonight. Please know that we appreciate your prayers. Our hearts are full of anticipation for what God has in store here in Baltimore this week. We are also so excited for all of the other Spring Term teams and look forward to hearing the updates from our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ at NCCS.
TOGETHER…Cultivating Hearts. Challenging Minds. Impacting Culture.
