We made it!

We made it!

Thanks for your prayers friends and loved ones!  We made it safely to Nashville and have had a fantastic first day.

This group of kids is so awesome – they are just ready to serve, to grow in their faith, to take their next steps to become the leaders God has created them to be.  Listening to their prayers, hearing what they’ve already learned about themselves and God…..it’s exciting.

Tonight, we learned that leaders live differently.  And each one of us is a leader.  And each one of us can live differently.  We were encouraged to know that we were saved for a reason, and that we can eagerly expect God to reveal to us His purpose for our lives.  Tomorrow, we’ll start the day reflecting on James 2:14-18 – faith and deeds.

Tomorrow, we get to go to the home of a woman named Elizabeth and we’ll serve her by cleaning inside and outside.  We’re hoping to share God’s love with Elizabeth as we spend time with her and help to get her home cleaned up.

Time for bed!  Thanks for your faithful prayers!
