Rain, rain go away … come again … much much later … like when we’re at home and don’t have a million lights to hang!
The kids did great today in spite of having to stop, start, stop, start because of the rain. We are almost finished with the light tunnel. We got two bridges wrapped and about 50+ trees. We placed the fake white deer herd on the hill. It was still a good day!
It has been great fun for me to get to know this class better. We have some wonderful kids in the 8th grade class here at Summit. Our teacher/leaders are amazing!
Tonight Mr. and Mrs. Dare came and had dinner with us and Mr. Dare gave the evening devotional. He challenged us all with 2 Corinthians 5:17, 2 Corinthians 10:5 and Romans 12: 2 to not conform to the ways of the world but to be transformed. To be able to do that we have to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Continuing from last night, we can be dead in our sins or we can be reconciled and have life in Christ. After he shared, Mr. Dare prayed for everyone but asked for those that wanted more prayer to stay behind. 12 of our students stayed. It was a sweet time.
To show the great love of God, Mr. Dare brought a replica of one of the spikes used to nail Jesus to the cross… he had 3 railroad ties that he nailed into a large block of wood while Mr. Chappell read John 3:16. It was pretty powerful!
Please pray for our students as they are writing in their responses to tonight’s devotional. Pray that they will allow God to touch them and draw them closer to him.
We are supposed to have rain tonight and in the morning. We have team building games in case we’re ‘shut in’ for a while. We should be able to work in the afternoon.
Thank you for allowing us to partner with you. It’s a privilege to get to spend time with these students and work along side them.
