What a great God we serve! On Tuesday night, the mission trip participants were able to see God’s love in action at a Community Cookout. We hosted the cookout for the neighborhood around Adullam Outreach. So many people from the community came to enjoy a burger and hot dog, fellowship, and some worship. We had a large number of children join us as well. Our students had a blast playing sidewalk chalk, football, frisbee, blubbles and face painting with the little ones. It was so encouraging to see our students so freely love these kids and their parents.
That evening, around 10pm, Higher Ground students were able to then continue their worship with a late night jam session at the church we are staying at. They brought out their guitars, and spent an hour just worshipping and praising God. It was so contagious that the Next Step staff members and the other church that has joined us for the trip all came and joined in.
We are continuing to work hard to complete our projects. Yesterday, our team of guys finished digging 22 post holes for a new fence they are building! The
girls continue to paint, install flooring, and work on homes.
Thank you for continuing to keep us in your prayers!
