Operation Bus Stop

So I wrote a few weeks back about our bus mission and yesterday we completed it.  It turned out that we weren't able to build a bench but I think we did something even better.  Nashville Transit System isn't that easy or accessible so we wanted to bless people who must or choose to take the buses to work everyday.  Most people in our group had never set foot on a bus before so it was a learning experience for them as well as an opportunity to help others.

We had 4 teams that went out and rode the buses buying everyone's fare who got on.  In the morning we handed out donuts and in the afternoon we handed out snacks.  This is a picture of one of our team members Rory (photo compliments of Carl Cartee)

More than just paying fares we also just talked to people.  And the funniest thing to me was, not only did they talk to us, they talked to each other which is not "bus normal".  Our group was glad that we did it and hope to do it again even if we just ride the bus and hand out donuts.  

Below is some more of the group but I saved it for last because my mom will die of embarrassment.  Yes mom, that is a sheet nailed up over our front window.  Look past that for just a moment to the beautiful people we are doing life with from our church who just met almost everyone who rides the Nolensville bus.
