In Hennessey, passing out hot dogs, our team met one man who had experienced a lot of hurt and guilt and was considering ending his life. But we praise God for leading us to him because he ended up re-dedicating his life to Christ, asking for forgiveness and for help to forgive others!
Please pray as we do service projects and a carnival again today, that darkness would be pushed back, the gospel would boldly be proclaimed, and that salvation would rain down in Hennessey!
Yesterday the weather continued to provide some welcomed reprieve as the team walked crosses from Waukomis into Hennessey! Not one student has complained and all continue to amaze us with their willingness to push past their own fatigue for the sake of serving others. In fact, every conversation they had or opportunity to pray with someone that opened their door energized and spurred them on!
Before we started walking, we had the opportunity to help out on one more service project in Waukomis. Going into this home was a bit like entering a third world country right here in Oklahoma. We began by trimming overgrown areas in their yard and by gutting one room where things have been hoarded. We are so proud of how the students jumped right in with whatever needed done; overwhelmed at first, but when we asked them what their thoughts were afterward, their biggest disappointment was wishing we could have done more! Please pray specifically for these sweet new friends Ronnie and Lisa.
