Our first ministry day in Painesville is in the books! 17 Crews went out into Painesville and the surrounding areas to share the Gospel through construction and church planting. I know that a lot of groups were able to have some cool conversations with the people they were serving.
Tonight we also had our first official gathering. The Gathering is our nightly worship time. Our speaker this year is Ed Newton. I think that the students are going to get a lot out of what he has to say.
Please be in prayer for our ministry teams! Most of the churches are split up into crews, and they are serving with their fellow churches. Here is the list of Churches that you can be in prayer for as they serve.
- Calvary Baptist Church from Bowling Green, Kentucky
- Painesville Baptist Church from Painesville, Ohio
- John Sevier Baptist Church from Knoxville, Tennessee
- First Baptist Church Mt. Orab from Mount Orab, Ohio
- Suck Spring Baptist Church from Bedford, Virginia
- Waterville Baptist Church from Cleveland, Tennessee
- Riverview Baptist Church from Pearisburg, Virginia
- Faith Baptist Church from Wilmington, Delaware
- Pennsylvania Avenue Baptist Church from Urbana, Illinois
Please keep them in prayer as they continue to work on houses and continue to help in church planting settings. The students are very excited about what God is going to do this week, and I love seeing them so excited. This week is going to be a great week.
Be sure to send the students e-couragrams! I was at the marketplace tonight, and I could see them light up when they found one in their encouragram envelope. Your encouragement gives them the little boost that they need after a long day, and I love seeing them so happy.
Peace and Blessings,
