Awe Star is more than just missions. It's discipleship.
The environment young adults are in challenge them to look deep in the Word. We have a saying, "The Word makes us deeper." When we are shallow, we need to go directly to the word of God as it is will help us dive beyond the surface to find the treasures meant tohelp
us make much of Him.
This morning, one of the Scriptures our young adults read was Psalm 119:9-11:
"How can a young person stay pure?
By obeying your word.
I have tried hard to find you--don't let me wander from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you."
Oh, how majestic are the words of God. How simple are the truths of His Word. How easily accessible are the words of God, yet how difficult we make them to find, but today, our students were challenged with this simple, yet profound word to discern the struggles they face in regards to purity. The Word is our compass....to life and to purity.
Today was a full day of drama training. Parents, you should be proud. There are a number of our young adults who have never seen the drama, but they have put their whole heart in preparing for this opportunity to share the Gospel.
Tonight, we had the honor to recognize Walker and Cathy Moore for 25 years of faithful ministry in sending many young adults to the mission field. The Country Coordinators took turns praying, giving encouragement, and washing their feet. What an incredible evening. Our students wrote thank you notes to Cathy and Walker for their years of investing.
We closed out the evening by calling parents before heading to Panama tomorrow. Our young adults are excited about finally making it to Panama. They have worked so hard and are anxious to start sharing the Gospel.
Pray for us as we travel. Pray for our first day of Jesus ministry in Panama as we head to a few schools to present the Freedom Drama. Also pray for our other teams headed to Peru, The Gambia, and Hungary. We are grateful for your prayers!
