God has been doing so many incredible things with every team. But we would like to highlight one team that had an incredible God-moment at a rehab facility.
#TeamTres had the privilege of visiting a rehab facility called Christo Vive (Spanish for "Christ is Alive"). As they shared the gospel, the men in the facility responded with confidence. They all raised their hands with shouts of complete adoration when asked if they knew Jesus! They were all believers. The team could see the passion for Jesus in their eyes and actions. It was in amazing to see the freedom God has given men who have overcome so much addiction and bondage. The Awe Star team took that opportunity just to pray over the men, encourage them in their freedom and speak life over them. What happened next inspired and strengthened the entire team.
In response, the men asked the Awe Star team to worship with them. Together, as one body, they were able to worship and shout out songs of praise to God. There was shouting, singing, dancing, laughing, smiling--so much excitement for their Savior. Everyone felt a sense of AWE at all God was doing. Two languages, neither understood by the speakers of the other, but in perfect unity in praise to God. It was amazing for everyone present.
Even though the Awe Star team didn’t know what the men were saying, they could feel the presence of God as the men shouted out praise to Him. The men in the rehab were sharing their testimonies, followed by lifted voices praising Jesus about how He saved them and had forgiven them. Just being in the room was overwhelming. Before the Awe Star team left, the men in the rehab asked if they could pray for them. They gathered around the team, laid hands on the students and cried out to God for His Spirit to empower them for the work of God’s kingdom. It was powerful! Everyone was so thankful for God allowing them to be a part of what God is doing!
For His glory,
