Ministry hit full speed today. Two teams went to two local car washes with the intention of connecting those we met to the churches we are serving with. The teams did a fantastic job cleaning cars and representing our Savior. One gentlemen was so pleased that he went and purchased 2 cases of soda, a bag of ice and a cooler for the kids to enjoy a drink. While we did our best to refuse donations we still received $36. This money went to the snack shop to help provide free drinks and snacks for the kids.
One lady was so touched by her converstion with one of the kids that she said she would visit Jenny's Creek Church soon.
Work projects are also underway here at the church. Buildings are having moss washed off them, a deck is being cleaned and sealed, a old backstop has been removed and 44 solid cinderblocks have been relocated to storage.
The first day of camp brought 32 kids from the community. The leadership of this group has done a great job empowering the teens to lead this camp. And the teens are doing a fantastic job. There was even a 30 minute period during the camp where the leaders were able to have a meeting while the teens led the camp without incident.
Please pray for each team member as they continue to pursue the goals the Lord created for them the first night that they left home for this trip. Please pray for the leaders of this ministry as they partner with the parents of these students to help them accomplish these goals. Please pray for the parents of these students that the Lord would give them the grace and the love and the wisdom to lead their children to a likeness in Jesus.
