Awesome Teenagers

This week has be great! Vacation Bible School and Sports Camp were a complete success. With over 180 children in attendance and with over 30 of our teenagers serving – the week was awesome.

Teenagers, I cannot begin to tell you how proud I am of the way you served this week. Each one of you did a fantastic job. You taught in Bible School all morning and most of you stayed through the afternoon to teach kids to play soccer, basketball, Frisbee or cheerleading. I am blown away by your maturity, passion, and leadership. Each of you is growing in your walk with the Lord and I can tell by the fruit of your lives. Those kids sure could tell it too. Thank you for being lights for Christ in Spartanburg this week. Keep it up!

May we take that same light with us and serve our Savior and Lord in Omaha, NE in the coming days as we head off to the reservation to work with the Omaha Nation. And then the real test will come.

Just a few short weeks after Mission Omaha you will head back to your campuses and have the opportunity to live lives that passionately follow Jesus around your friends back at the junior high and high school campuses all across our county. Will you be ready?

By the way, the cross has been moving around since camp.  Molly Long took it home from camp then passed to it Mary Ellen in Sunday School.  Mary Ellen passed it to Taylor Barr on Monday of VBS.  Taylor passed it to Kate Inclan on Tuesday at VBS.  Kate passed it to Cam Connelly on Wednesday.  Cam passed it to Janna McClure on Thursday.  Janna passed it to Caleb Hoover who still has it and will pass it off next to someone going on the mission trip.  And on it goes…connecting us throughout our summer.

  1. It is great to hear about the trip…an awesome opportunity for everyone involved. I can’t wait to see what God is going to continue to do in this mission endeavor. You have been in my thoughts and prayers from the time you left. Look forward to hearing wonderful things!
