The Mentors have arrived!

Friday marked one of the days that we’ve been waiting for – the SERVE mentors have arrived from across the country!  3 from Ontario, 3 from Winnipeg, 3 from Alberta and 6 from BC – all descended on Covenant CRC around noon … still not 100% sure what they were in for.  After a great lunch, we set off on some team-building adventures.  We began with canoeing on the (incredibly high) river at La Barrier Park outside of Winnipeg (hello mosquitoes!!!) and then headed into downtown for a small ‘amazing race’, ending with mini donuts at the ‘cauldron’ at the Forks.  Some great bonding took place even over these few hours.  Our evening concluded with showers, church set up and some more ‘get to know you’ activities. We are looking forward to meeting our participants tomorrow.  Finally….sleep!
