Friday Update... Airport Info

In the morning, we met Boto at a Queens park and did our last service project clean up work. Boto expressed his gratitude to us for coming to his community and doing the work we did. After lunch we split into groups and went out to Manhattan for our "free/fun day" (although they were all fun ;) ). Depending on which group, they got to see the statue of liberty, Ellis island, Chinatown, central park, ground zero, times square and many other places. In the evening some of the groups went to see Spiderman on Broadway and the Yankees game. I can tell you that the Spiderman show was spectacular and all the kids that went to see it were truly astounded. After the performance, the girls wanted to wait outside in the street by the stage back door to meet the actor who played Spiderman. He was very sweet to the girls and gave autographs and took pictures with each on of them. I'm sure you'll see them up on Facebook. ;) I overheard one of the girls say "This is the best night of my life!"...they're so funny... Heading to the airport early Saturday morning. We arrive to Tampa at 1:30pm unless any delays. Please pick up your child promptly at the Delta baggage belt for flight 1931 from LaGuardia. This is the end of the trip and it's been an unforgettable experience for the students. Very proud of them. Everyone is healthy and safe. Please make sure to thank our adult leaders/chaperones for taking great care of your children. Don't forget homeconcert Sunday night...students need to arrive to worship center for sound check at 4:30pm. Wear RED NY Good News tshirt and jeans. It's been a pleasure ministering with your children this year and here in New York - Leo
