Our first full day in British Columbia was amazing!
We started the day off at the Delta Church of Christ. It’s a small congregation and they have no church building. Their services are held in a elementary school gymnasium.
Still, a church is not the building but the body of Christ, and I met some very sweet people! Emily and I taught the children’s class and our great guys led the service.
After service, the members had prepared for us an amazing potluck. We Church of Christ members are famous for our potlucks! Even in Canada. Who knew?
That afternoon our group drove around Delta, BC and picked up over 200 bags of food that the community donated to the local food bank.
Amazing! People were so giving, and hopefully they are now curious about the Delta Church of Christ!
You can read more about our efforts for the food bank here.
That night we had a home devotional with our group and members from the church. It was simple- a few songs and prayer, and then pizza. But it made it very intimate and special.
Then the church members surprised us with Canada gear! We were such tourists…
And then we had an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen.
Our week was just beginning, and we had no idea the wonderful things in store for us!
