Team East – That’s a Rap – July 8th

To be read at a rhythmic pace, with soul.
This is a rap for Team East.

Our days be slimmin’
Clear is our mission
We be OB – shawty that’s what’s kickin

Today was hot
So is this beat
That’s why we took our mission to the street

The day got started
The kids arose
Breakfast and then a teaching time on being thankfulllll

Dana taught the lesson
All the team went wild
But not quite as crazy as this wicked freestyle

A StreetWise session
On Eastern religion
Knowledge flew like the wings of a pigeon

Lunch ensued
Pizza for the people
Then we went out of our church with a steeple

Outreach time
And you best believe
The students brought the gospel like Chuck E. brings his Cheese

Woah that was hot
Like Miami Heat
Even Dwayne Wade ain’t got nothing on this beat

A program in the park
Of a Cambodian neighborhood
Who would have thought puppets could be so gooooood

Lions, and tigers, and bears –
Oh my!
But our students raised the roof oh so high

After that,
The team walked along the streets
Finding people they had yet to meet

The bus came back
Dinner was a go
The food was almost as sick as this flow

Then we set up outside
For a block party
But the rain came down and we all did flee

We moved our stuff
To the inside of the building
We got ready for a concert that was chilling

Some games and prizes
Preceded the concert
And OB did a pantomime that was sweeter than dessert

The rapper was lit
The concert was ill
This grammar so dope, no one mess with my chill

The concert went well
There were some who met Jesus
And then all went home but our joy still increases

The girls and the guys
Split up and each met
They respectively had their best meetings yet

Encouragement, love
And lots of laughs too
Don’t forget about the time that Kasen went “Achoo!”

Our trip is almost over
Pray for us as we cap
Off the end of few weeks that were great like this rap.
