Wednesday was a busy, but very fulfilling day at the Salvation Army Harlem Corp. We started the day with a “Salvo Session,” where Majors Hickman gave us a presentation of some of the things the greater New York division of the Salvation Army. Hearing about all these different ministries really opened our eyes to see the greater picture of what we are a part of.
So often on mission trips, we get so focused on the small details of whatever task we’re working on. We see the marks of paint on a wall, we see the smile on a single child’s face, we see one shelf of a library that’s been reorganized. We see all these small accomplishments without ever noticing the bigger picture of everything we’re a part of. In reality, the #IWUnyc2012 team is simply coming alongside the Salvation Army for a week, joining in with the ministry they’re already doing week in and week off. The work we’re doing this week is so much bigger than ourselves, and does so much to further the ministries already taking place.
And so, here’s a few pictures from yesterday’s work day. But don’t you worry, the day wasn’t all work. We rewarded ourselves with a spontaneous trip to Times Square for some cheesecake!
