Today goes down in the books as another busy day at OB Orientation! There is so much to be done before we leave for tour but these students are having lots of fun and enjoying the new things they are learning. This morning the students focused on writing their testimonies so that they can be used throughout programs this summer. It was so encouraging to walk around and hear their testimonies and to also hear them sharing with one another. God has brought us each through a different walk and it is always encouraging to hear how God has worked in their lives!
3 Group Practices continue to improve as puppets are perfected, dramas are being acted out, and pantomimes are coming together extremely well! Each of these avenues will be used for ministry this summer and that is the focus of our students as we work on them. We are all excited to get on tour and to see how God will use these to bring people to Him! In the same way our choir practices have been focused on individual teams, but today we practiced many times for tomorrow morning. The students will be leading Lititz Grace Church in worship tomorrow through their choir songs! As they practiced on stage today they sounded incredible and it was clear, by the look on their faces, that they were excited about the truth these words speak.
While on tour our students will be staying in host homes so tonight we went over some Dinner Etiquette. A few of the fearless leaders put on a hilarious demonstration of what NOT to do while eating dinner at a host home. Following the demonstration they were given the opportunity to practice these etiquette skills in a nice dinner! The tables were decorated with flowers, we were served family style, and the food was delicious (as always!).
The night was finished up with a Talent Show for each team. Each student shared a talent or skit for their team. Some were hilarious, some were heartfelt, and others shared their musical talents! We are thankful for the talents and gifts that God has given us and it will be exciting to see how God uses these talents for ministry this summer. Please be praying for the students tomorrow as they talk with people from Lititz Grace and lead them in worship!
