Photos of our Time at Gateway

We made it! Thursday night we arrived at the Mercy Ships headquarters, nestled in East Texas between Van, Garden Valley, Lindale and Tyler. Here are some pictures we took between then and now.

Kylie hard at work with her group, trying to stack the cups with the rubber band and strings

Savannah's group was also still hard at work

Some sisterly love

The weather that has greeted us since Sunday!

Here we are, freezing!! Today I think the high was 19 degrees! Yikes! I thought we were packing for tropical Africa??

The rain to sleet to ice to snow did make for gorgeous scenery though.

Here's the view from out our dorm window - not too many cars in the parking lot this morning- even the schools were two hours delayed due to the weather.... more about the schools in the next post! Stay tuned!!
