Incredible day. We all did breakfast at different locations across Northeast Portland. Then we gathered at the Revard's house to learn about bread & wine, the church here in portland. They introduced us to their identities and rhythms, which you can read about here. We hung out atop the Green Micro Gym, from which we could see Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helen's on the clear, sunny portland day. We then did a little "neighborhood beautification." We cleaned up the streets and had a few great conversations along the way. It's all about paving the way for the gospel to hit people's hearts by showing them that the church cares about their city. Tonight a few groups got to experience a gospel community (bread & wine's small groups) while the rest of us spent the night with our host homes. Great day in portland. Cool to learn how this community is living out the gospel.
For His glory and our joy,
P.S. Only one pair got lost walking today. Reid Schatzman and Jason Holmstrom made a devastating wrong turn that put them a couple of miles away from where they were going. They found us after some cell phone coaching. All the girls did great.
