There are not words that can truly describe today. We kick off the day at going into a juvenile detention center. There were young men in there from 14-22 years old and some of them had never encountered the Love of God. Groups played games, did drama, and have small group discussions. God broke down so hard hearts and did things that only He could do. The statement that ripped everyone's heart out came from one of the young men. He said, "I thought we were forgotten. I thought no one loved us." How heartbreaking! We were humbled that God chose us to love on the unloveable and reach out to the forgotten. God gave us favor in a dark place and open some of the coldest hearts.

After lunch we spent the afternoon in a couple schools doing assemblies. Dancing, giving testimonies, and doing drama. It was an awesome afternoon. We ended our day with one best devotional/prayer times I've ever been a part of on a Mission's Trip. God did such an incredible work in our team member's lives. Students were broken and crying out to God for over an hour. 

We can not wait to see what tomorrow holds. We are doing school assemblies all day then a service tomorrow night. Be in prayer for us. Praying for favor in the schools. Strength an energy to do the programs. Wisdom and discernment to know what God wants us to do.
