Friday we finished up several service projects across. Many people within bread & wine were encouraged and said that they had really seen gospel service and community modeled by ours students. I couldn't be more proud of this crew. They have had wonderful hearts and been incredibly open to having their ideas about church challenged. One of my favorite comments came from Jayme Doss. She said, "I used to always think that my time with God meant time by myself reading and praying. Here, time with God means getting together in community to read, pray and discuss." We're learning that our walks with Jesus were meant to be in community.
Students are also learning what it means to live with "gospel intentionality." We have viewed little decisions like where we have breakfast and who we start conversations with through the lens of building relationships to share the gospel. The bread and wine community has said that our time here has already built some relationships that have led to people asking to come and explore the bread & wine community.
Friday night we got to go downtown and see more of the city. Fun times.
For His glory and our joy,
