God has shown himself mighty! Our students have grown in so many ways, they are developing a heart of a servant and we are excited to wrap up this first week with some exciting stories of the great things God has done!
We started off with our quiet times and after breakfast we headed on over to Mrs. Julia’s home, an 84 year old woman who lives on her own in an old run down house. Seeing her house was heartbreaking. It has been through many floods, flooring was coming up and the siding had rotted. So our team got busy!
With hearts full of love and hands ready to serve we replaced the rotted siding and inside walls and then were able to put a fresh coat of paint on them. God gave us the privilege to spend some meaningful tim with Mrs. Julia, talking with her, praying for her and sharing the hope of the gospel with her! Please pray for Mrs .Julia with us!
During our family outreach that evening ( our carnival) God continued to move! The community that we had visited the day before through going door to door, slowly showed up during the evening. Adriana, our newest summer staff member got the opportunity to translate in Spanish as the gospel was presented to the entire Carnival. She was also working a booth and had a girl come to her booth. She talked with her and began to ask her if she had ever heard the story of Jesus. The girl said no. She began to share but before she could get done the girl asked if she could get her twin sister. Adriana continued to share and both girls gave their lives to Christ! It was incredible! Please continue to pray for God to give us more and more Divine Encounters! Pray He would give us strength mentally, physically and spirituality. Join with us in praying for the students that ended their week trip today that God may continue to do His work in their lives. Pray for those that will join us on Tuesday for our second full week of ministry. We are excited for all God has in store for the days ahead and can’t wait to share!
