Well today Team Hoosier’s tour came to an end, but with a very good ending. Today we put on our final OB church service for Legacy Church of Kendallville, Indiana. It was a great service, and people were so encouraged by our students, that a new family decided to follow Jesus for the first time. Praise God! After the service we stopped to get lunch and headed over to the local park to enjoy a couple of hours with the people from the church. It was a great time to relax and enjoy each others’ company along with that of Legacy Church. After a long day, we prayed with all the staff and people from Legacy, said our goodbyes, and headed back to CE National.
Once arriving back at CE National, TK met with the students to begin the debriefing process and talked about how our tour went. After everything had been said and done, we had a special surprise for the students. For the first time in OB history we took our students to the movie theater to see Despicable Me 3. This was just a fun thing to do as a team before our final full day tomorrow, and the students had a great time.
This has been an AMAZING tour for OB 2017: Team Hoosier. God has changed the lives of each student in so many ways. The students learned how to share their faith and some found out what God wants them to do for the rest of their lives. Thank you parents and OB supporters for taking the time to read this blog and for all the prayers sent our way! You all have been gracious and understanding as to what we are trying to accomplish here on Operation Barnabas, and we guarantee you will see a change in your students when you’re reunited, because they are so excited to come home and see how God works in your communities. This is Caleb Haymaker signing off for Team Hoosier. Thanks and enjoy the rest of your summer. God Bless!
