Summer is almost over and man, it's been busy and gone by WAY to quickly! So busy, that I haven't even posted about taking our youth to Fall's Creek! That was at the end of June and it was life changing...for all of us, not just the students! The theme was SENT ~ John 17:18 "As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world."
The Men ;)
That week changed our group completely! It woke us up...rocked our comfortable world completely...gave us the swift kick in the pants that we needed!!! There is a lost and dying world out there, and we walk by it, live in it, and encounter it EVERYDAY! Why are we not telling them about the Truth that lives in us? We are sent...it's not an option, or something that will come in the future when we think we are ready...it's NOW, it's who we are right now...WE ARE SENT by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords to reach into the darkness with the light of Jesus Christ. We are ready to get busy with what we were supposed to already be doing!
God has blessed our youth group in HUGE ways...we had 5 young people come to know the Lord at camp and our kids have lead 10+ people to the Lord since then, He has given them burdens for friends and family and a boldness to witness to them. He has changed Lee and I as well. He has given us burdens and a boldness like we have never had before! We can't wait to see all the things that the Lord has in store for us, for our church, and for these amazing students!
