New York City Mission Trip 2017 {The Final Chapter}

Some closing thoughts on our final morning in New York City......

Last "goodbyes" until we meet again!
"Parting is such sweet sorrow!"

One last group photo with my roomies for the week!!
{Just for clarification: this is referring to the picture below!}

One last bite of New York Style (amazing!) pizza for lunch.

One least "Team Mom" shot on the very last row of our very last flight!

Thank you, New York City, for your generous hospitality of fitting
our whole group in to your already crowded spaces.
You very rarely complained and unfolded your arms to warmly embrace us!
I'll never forget the incredible diversity
 of your people, languages, food, and cultures.
I'll be praying that the "seeds" we planted this summer will take root
and draw "your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
the wretched refuse, the homeless, the tempest-tossed"
to the Light of World.....Jesus.
