Final Ministry Day in Omaha

Mission Omaha TeamThursday is finally here. We’re excited and sad all at the same time. We have all had a wonderful time working among the Omaha people, but we are also looking forward to being home with our families.

Today we are praying that some of the children who have been coming to Bible school make decisions for Christ. Three little girls at the Walthill club are really close and truly seeking. Pray that today might be the day that they give their hearts to Jesus.

The storage building is done and looks great. The team is going to have a dedication for it later this afternoon at our week’s closing service.

I must take a moment to brag on our team – especially our teens. They have all been awesome. This is the first trip I can remember taking with any church group where there has been so much group unity. Typically, tensions run high on trips like this when you live in such close conditions and minister about 19 hours per day. Normally by now I would be stopping fights and trying to help fix hurt relationships. Not this week! This team has stood side by side and served in love the whole week. Praise the Lord!

Keep praying for us especially as we start our drive home at around 5am tomorrow morning. We will be stopping in St. Louis tomorrow night for dinner and a tour of the Arch.

  1. Yo Nathan and Gang, We really miss you guys. It is hard to believe that almost a week has passed since you began your journey. We shared with all of those at prayer meeting last night about the success of each event and the adult who came to know the Lord. Jenny did a good job. It is very quiet here today with almost everyone out and about. I stopped in the check your blog since I have not heard from anyone. Had my eyes diolated at 10:00AM and a little foggy. We are praying for you and hope to see you at 8:00 PM on Saturday. Hope Uoogum-Boogum goes well. Wishe we were there, Jack & (Cathy – taking final today in Algegra 2 B.)

  2. I am so happy that you let me join the trip, I had an AWESOME time! This is a great picture of all of us, i look very random with my hair in my face haha the sun made me squint!

  3. As a member of the construction crew, I’m very proud of what we did. I had no previous experience with constrcution, and at first didn’t understand why God chose me for this team. Now I know it was for the experience. What an amazing 8 days! It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. It was the most satisfying thing I’ve ever done. Thanks for all the prayers, Morningside. We felt them. They protected us, and brough all 54 of us home safe and sound. Go on a mission trip. It will bless you. I can promise you that.

  4. I would like to thank Morningside for allowing me to go on the mission trip. I am from First Bap. downtown. I was more than blessed not only with the opportunity to work with those precious children but the chance to meet new friends and bond with some of God’s special people. Everyone took me in as if one of your very own. I have never felt more loved. The teens were so wonderful and helpful with where ever they were needed and never complained about anything asked of them. WHAT A WONDERFUL GROUP OF YOUNG PEOPLE!!!! I grew to love you all!! God certainly worked through you as you left those children with His precious love. Thanks to all of you at Morningside for making my first mission trip so special. God bless! Carol Bailey
