Wow, the Lord is just doing crazy things all over the place.  Today we began our day with a program at Grace Retirement Village.  It was so encouraging and awesome to talk with those who have gone before to pave the way of faith like these men and women.  We talked with a lot of people today who have been following Jesus for many years!  We got to have lunch with the residence as well!  After the program, we did a tour of Grace College and then headed back to the church.  We then had a teaching time from Bethany about self discipline.  (After some Scripture memory.)  After the teaching time, we loaded the bus and headed to Wal-Mart and then to the mall to have some conversations about the Gospel.  We had amazing opportunities to share our faith with so many different people from a Buddhist, to Muslims, to a Jehovah’s Witness.  So many of our kids’ hearts are breaking for those who are lost in a thicket of lies and who are without Christ as their Savior.  We then made our way back to the church (after dinner at McDonalds) and filled out end of tour evaluations and finally BEAT THE POLE GAME!  Please pray for our students as they go into debriefing tomorrow.  So many of them are excited AND scared to go home.  Pray for the Lord to reveal truth and His will to each student as they face what it means to bring what they have learned in Ministry home to where God has called them!  Goodnight!
