Northeast Team-July 15th, The Power of the Cross

Today was another great day for the Northeast team! The team met this morning and spent an hour with God.
The team was then led in a teaching time by Amy, which was about taming your tongue. We then spent some time cleaning the church before we left. After lunch we went to Wal-Mart, which led to many great conversations. From the store we headed towards Alexandria, Virginia. We safely arrived at the Grace Brethren Church in Alexandria around five. The team had the opportunity tonight to do a program for the community. There were many visitors from the community that the team shared Jesus with. Elizabeth had the opportunity to share her object lesson and did a great job. Timmy M. was able to share his devotional on being fearfully and wonderfully made. We ended the program with the cross-illustration and the students reported several salvation decisions.
The team ended the night with a quick debrief of the day. During this time the students shared different stories and experiences that had happened throughout the day. It was an awesome time of seeing how God is at work amongst us. We ended the meeting with a time of worship led by Tom B. The presence of God was very present. We would like to thank all those who pray for us daily, God is at work on our team. One of our students truly came to know Christ the other day and told the team tonight. This led to a huge celebration.
Keep on Praying! It Works!!!
