We wrapped up our mission work today, but the ministry continues in East Cleveland. Keep Pastor Ben Shelton and his family in mind as you consider the people of Cleveland.
Our team is leaving Cleveland with joy as we saw God work in and through out students. We began today with worship and setting our hearts on what is most important: Jesus and His mission. Students responded by praying for others, fixing their eyes on Jesus, and making amends with others in the group that they had hurt during the week.
With clear minds and thankful hearts, we moved out into the community. Our students took bold steps to proclaim Jesus, whether that be interviewing a person on their own or sharing the gospel of God. I’m proud of each of them!
The gospel has been proclaimed faithfully on a number of occasions and it will be great to see the impact of these witnessing conversation later. It was also exciting to see the fruit of prayer during our time together. One group prayed for a woman and her son who hadn’t spoken in a while and as the team encountered later, she said that her one son had called after they left. There are plenty of other stories like that!
We’ll see you tomorrow!
