Today we painted a house, played with and loved nearly 40 kids at two playground Bible clubs and served food to about 180 families at the Love in Action Food Pantry. I’d say it’s been a great Monday.
God has certainly opened the eyes of these students to see a bigger world than just Florence, SC. There’s no place like Bourbon Street back in Flo-town. Though this city is the Big Easy, it’s the same as us. We’re all just people…who would be lost without Jesus.
We started our day at morning devotions at 7am and ended with church group devotion in the park along the river in Jackson Square at 10pm. It’s been a full day of being poured out on the city. For me, the best description of today was written in a thank you note from the 95yr old man whose house we painted. He said, “Thank you for being sermons in shoes.” That’s what this week is about… being the hands and feet that bring the Good News. Pray for us Ebenezer. Three more days ahead of us!! God is doing big things in our hearts and lives.
