How Deep is the Love of Christ?

Posted by: Rachael Fleres

"...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." ~Isaiah 40:31

Last day at Long View. I cannot believe it. Feels like we just got here yesterday! But no, we will be heading home tomorrow morning. But about today. I feel like today was the biggest day we've had. Some of us woke up early and witnessed an amazing sunrise. Then we ate breakfast, did devotions, and we were off to Rural Resources. Rural Resources is a farm that raises cattle and crops and gives a portion to poor families. We helped fix some buildings, helped with animals, and helped with crops. We ate lunch by the stream before working for another hour or so. Then, we headed back to Long View where a small group helped out with a small task and then we all took a break. On the break we played games or slept. A lot slept. We were tired! Dinner was promptly at 6, followed by music, devotions, verse memorization and then a bonfire. At the bonfire we all shared very deeply and we learned so much- we are a family and we have someone to lean on.  We saw God's Spirit move in our hearts and He prompted us to share with each other.  He is bringing healing and help to us as individuals and as a class.  We thank Him for what He has done on this trip and look forward to the unity it will bring our class in these years ahead. For the final time we sign off from Long View. 

From our class to your home, with all the love from our Father... Good Night
