This was a very different type of ministry than what we had done before. 5 groups were given $200 each to go and discern how the Lord wanted to bless those around them with. There were many who were homeless that were able to walk away with shoes for the winter and rain, groceries, or even just a meal. One student had a vision from the Lord of someone they should talk to and ended up seeing that person that day. From that conversation they got to meet two others and were able to share the love of Jesus with them. This was a very practical experience to be able to discern the Holy Spirit and follow his leading.
The last few days of the missions trip were very similar to our love crofton event. Students split up Into some groups and got to help people in Duncan with exterior work. Students were helping garden, taking down blackberry bushes, chopping wood, and lots more. While this was happening, other students were at camp cleaning up the roads from fallen trees, sticks, and leaves. We had well over 100 garbage bins full of leaves and sticks that got rid of. It was a great experience being able to give back to the place that we get to live in all year.
- Continuing in boldness to share the gospel as a group after Kaleo
- Prayer for the single mother's we met: financial issues, healing, for them to know God's love for them.
- That this mission's trip would not be a spiritual high, but set forth a rhythm of life afterwards.
