Baltimore, we're here!

Thankfully we had an uneventful plane ride here to Baltimore. Security found something suspicious in my carry-on. (Turned out to be my mascara.) Then they found something suspicious in my purse. (Turned out to be my asthma inhaler.) One of our youth had his $25 acne medicine confiscated. It was 1 ounce over the limit. But, we're here safely!

We're staying at Warren Avenue Baptist Church which has been in this location since 1912 and in existence since 1855. The pews go back to the 1855 date. Their sanctuary is gorgeous with incredible stain glass windows. I wish I could post pictures here, but I have no way to download them from this location. Part of our team arrived a day earlier and had lunch ready. Then we had a time of not-so-brief orientation. We spent the rest of our first day airing up our mattresses, settling in, and exploring. We walked to Federal Hill which over looks the Inner Harbor. What a view! Later we walked part way around the Inner Harbor to the Cheesecake Factory. The Inner Harbor is such an interesting walking area, and the Cheesecake factory was oh, so yummy!

I awoke during the night with my behind on the floor - obviously my mattress has a leak. Debbie (our cook) can't find the grits she brought. I'm not sure we Mississippi folks will survive the day! LOL!

Today we are scheduled to work at the Helping-up mission which is a drug rehab homeless shelter. We don't know what we'll be doing, so I'll write about that this evening!
