We started today bright and early to a breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and bacon made by us leaders. We then had a reuniting with Team 611 to sound check for our final combined program tomorrow. So excited to see the students pumped to praise the Lord all together one last time through their programs. We then had a debriefing session with TK. He prepped the students on what to expect and what will be both good and difficult as they head home.
The students then had lunch and we began end of tour evaluations. It was phenomenal to see again the work that the Lord has very clearly been doing in these students.
During exit interviews, we crammed in lunch and encouraged each of the students to find time for their hour with God. Unfortunately, each day back home will not be thoroughly mapped out for them so we wanted and needed to help them to learn how to incorporate that into their day.
During interviews we also spent some time on Winona Lake inner tubing, jet skiing and playing Hantis… also… there were kayaks. After that, we came back to the church and finished up our sermons and children’s stories that weren’t able to be incorporated into programs for the team. We ate dinner and then I did a teaching time on discipleship.
It’s off to bed now and I would ask for prayer for these students as they head into the bitter-sweetness of their last full day of ministry together. Can’t believe it’s the end already. But I know that the Lord is prepared to do immeasurably more than I could as or imagine. Also, check your students Facebook to see some cool videos that were posted today 🙂 Goodnight!
