Yesterday was our last day of ministry and a full day of outreaches. Our kid's programs was wide open all morning. With each three of our communities that we were ministering in having more students than ever. Roughly ministered to 150 kids on Thursday morning. Everyone of our teams were quiet and hearts were heavy as they had to say good bye to the different kids. All the kids were holding on and hugging different team members not wanting them to go.
Days begin to blend together when you are on a Mission's Trip. I had to remind myself that today was Wednesday. Can not believe we have been here for three days already. Have I told you lately how awesome Thrive Students are awesome? They are working, serving, and advancing the Kingdom of God. This morning we worked in the same communities that we worked in Tuesday. At the Boys and Girls Club today we worked with teenagers. The guys played basketball and video games while the girls spent time together. It was an awesome time of one on one and building community.
What a day! You just could feel it when we woke up this morning that God was going to do awesome stuff. The students were a little quite to begin with but it was not that they were nervous or scared, I believe they were prepared. It was Game Day and they were ready. All the AIM team members from all over the state did an awesome job but I am proud of Thrive Students for they way they work, the way they love on people, the way they go after God, and they way they laugh.
Have not blogged in a while and figured today would we as good a day as any to start again. Today was the first day of our Mission's Trip. This year we have travel to Savannah, GA to work in the inner-city with Life Bridge Ministries. It was a travel and training day today. A lot of hurry up and slow down. A lot of wondering what we were doing and when we were doing it. We left the Hotel around 6 pm and headed downtown on the Jesus bus to "spy-out" the land and hear the heart of the Ministry. After that we head over to one of the host churches to pray and train.
