It Has Begun…Leader Orientation That Is.

Leaders orientation has begun and everyone is hard at work in preparation for the incoming Operation Barnabas students.  We began the day with a devotional by Team Indiana leader Brandon and  were then joined by Dana  who spoke about the importance of being united as leaders. We then were able to make a Sam’s Club run to get breakfast items for Student Orientation which starts on Monday. By the way, seven bags of bagels and twelve bags of bread equals a lot of carbs!!!
For dinner we were blessed by the Ranks and were invited into their home for Tacos made by Sherilyn herself. After dinner we separated into our teams to pray over the students that we will have a privilege to work along side with this summer. We then came back to CE National to further our programming for our teams. So after a long day of leader sessions, tacos and, three group practice we are ready to call it a night!
(Please be in prayer for the leaders of both teams and the incoming students for this summer!)
