Team Philippines-Monday, March 11th

It was a wonderful first day of Goweek for third grade! We spent part of our day learning more about the flag of the Philippines and noting what it has in common with our flag and how it is different. Today and tomorrow students will be writing letters to active military members. They are off to a great start with their letters!

Our guest speaker of the day came to Hyde Park to share about the work of Austin Diaper Bank. You can find more information about supporting this organization at http://www.austindiapers.org. In the afternoon we loaded into vans and headed to the Austin Baptist Community Center. This ministry has been in Austin since 1941! We learned how they provide assistance to people in the Austin community and toured their property. Ms. Pat was a wonderful host and shared several ways people of all ages can help at the Austin Baptist Community Center. Please visit their site at http://www.bccmission.org or call Ms. Pat directly at 512-478-7243.

The day ended in chapel where we sang and prayed together. We are looking forward to tomorrow’s activities!
