Friends, we had an amazing first day of ministry. The stories just keep coming. I'm encouraging students to write them as soon as possible, but there's not a whole lot of time for writing. But rest assured, more stories are on the way.
As for today, please pray for the following:
- Yesterday, we had about twenty kids at our VBS program. Please pray that God would grant us momentum to carry this program throughout the week. Pray that we might reach kids who have yet to make a decision for Jesus.
- Today, a large portion of our group is going to prepare a meal and deliver it to a large "tent city" where many dozens of homeless people have put up tents under an overpass. Please pray for God to communicate His love to these men, women, and children through our team.
- Today at 4:00pm our time (2:00pm back home), we are combining forces with the mission teams from the other two churches for a basketball outreach, at the abandoned school we worked at last year. There are many neighborhood teenagers, and we are praying that they may be reached for Christ. Please cover this outreach in prayer this afternoon.
Again, everyone is well. We are amazed at God's faithfulness to use us, if only we make ourselves available. Thank you again for your prayers and support.
