Today was an amazing full day at St Pats. During our time at HT this week, we have talked about spiritual gifts and the body of Christ. So this morning our team lead the family service from 1 Corinthians 12 about the many parts of the body. During our time of worship together, Amanda and Katie read scripture, Trent lead a game, Kristin and Andie lead our teaching time and Laura, Maddie, & Matt lead our prayer time. It was a sweet morning of us all using our gifts.
Then we enjoyed a nice afternoon with our host families and then off to 440. Eloise, Jenna, Sam, and Hunter lead us in a hilarious game that the kids loved. Then our team invited everyone at 440 to share about struggles and insecurities and how God met them in it. Abby got a chance to share deep parts of her story which was really significant.
Then we headed to life time where Tim and Kristin lead us in worship. Then each student on our team got to share about our week in the schools and what God was doing in them during our time in Wallington. It was amazing to hear from everyone and get to see the amazing things that the Lord is doing in our team. If that is all He is up to (which I know there is so much more) then just that is extremely valuable.
Damon and I are so proud of our team for all that they have done, shared and experienced this week. They have been stretched more than ever before and God is changing and molding then into bold Christ Followers!! I don’t think any of us will ever be the same. Thanks be to God for redeeming us and showing us how to share that with others. Such a life changing trip.
Tomorrow we will head into London for a great day of seeing the sights and enjoying being with our English friends one last day!! We are excited to see you all in a few short days.
