Day 2 in Full Swing…….

Today was the first full day of OB orientation and it was packed full of training. We began the morning with reading through 1 Thessalonians 2, learning about ministry principles from the life of Paul.
The OB leaders went over all the guidelines for the summer and the students then learned the theme verse for Operation Barnabas, Acts 11:23, 24. We had a great time learning dances to songs, making balloon animals, and learning how to say thank you through a fun song.
After lunch the students helped out around the church in many different ways. They helped in cleaning up in and outside of the church and will continue to serve in these ways all week. The students had a few different opportunities to practice their choir music today and are sounding great so far!
Ed Lewis, executive director of CE National, was able to teach on outreach and what evangelism looks like in our day to day life. Thomas B. and Jordynne B. led us in some special music and then Ed challenged us on submitting to our authority and how that applies to our daily walk with the Lord.
We are excited about the things that happened today and cannot wait to see what the rest of this week holds. Please keep praying that the Lord will be glorifies in and through all of our lives this summer. Until tomorrow…
