We have departed from Norton and have arrived in Columbus, OH…or Worthington to be more precise. For all of our Worthington Christian students, this is familiar territory because we are staying at their high school. After the students arrived at the church from their host homes, they spent the first part of the morning in God’s word, reading Psalm 136 and then responding by writing their own “Psalm 136” based on their lives and this summer. Repeating the phrase “His love endures forever” was an impacting and humbling exercise and practice. We spent the rest of the morning in Norton engaging some of the kids from the church and other youth with a program at a local park. It was a little different to have a program in the morning, but the students were energetic and ministered to the group in an awesome way.
Upon return to the church, we shared one final meal with the youth and then departed for Columbus! Our trip was smooth and uneventful, and we settled into the high school once we arrived. We then spent some time sharing about this morning’s time with God…the students shared some powerful writings on their lives and what they have experienced and how God has remained true to them. It is incredible to see our Lord’s faithfulness! We then proceeded to take some time to get ready in preparation for a nice night out at Olive Garden. We had a great time with each other at the restaurant and returned to the school very full and very happy! We look forward to ministry tomorrow!
