Martin Methodist College – Mar 12, 2012
The Red Bus Project is officially on the road! We can't believe it. Today was a day of incredible emotion - just seeing the bus rolling down the highway was remarkable. Our whole team is so excited to finally see this come to life with real students shopping on the Red Bus and coming out to hear Caleb play.
Even with last minute (5AM!) adjustments to the Red Bus, head colds, and some pretty threatening weather, our team pulled together to make this first day a huge success. The staff and crew on the Red Bus are some of the finest servants on the planet. Of course, we couldn't have done it without a ton of support from Martin Methodist University's students and staff! A huge "thank you" goes out to Brandi Belcher, Martin Methodist's Americorps/Vista Martin Serves Coordinator, for coordinating the on-campus promotion and student volunteers. The amount of clothes that were pre-collected and that came in on Monday was overwhelming in the best possible way. For being the first campus on our tour, Martin Methodist students have already blown us away by making a BIG impact for orphans through their donations and their purchases on the Bus!
This first event was all about serious hustle from passionate people. All the late nights and long meetings spent preparing for this day paid off big time. We just wrapped up an incredible day of connecting with the students of Martin Methodist in Pulaski, TN, and we're excited to see what these students do next to serve orphans!
Lee University - you're next! We can't wait to see you!
