Local Missions 2016 Day 2

Posted by: Vittoria Sottani, 10th grade

Day 2 was filled with blessings just like day 1! The morning devotion was great. Each of us expressed their personal experience about how our relationship with our earthly father, or mother,  affects what we think about God or what we think He might think about us. Our parents' behavior affects us more than what we can imagine, even if they are distant to us, and we can't really see what they are doing. God will be there ALWAYS, no matter what our parents do or did. This is what we were commissioned to teach those little kids from Florence Fuller.

Each student was brought back to the same class as yesterday, not only because the kids got really attached, but we did too! We spent time outside, played games, and taught them things. Mrs. Sengberg helped them brush their teeth! :)
Many of the kids wanted us to go to their homes, but we told them to hold on because we would be back on Monday, and that if they ever felt alone,  to remember that Jesus will always be there for them, as a best friend too.

We are looking forward for next week, and for what we will learn about God's word and to  positively impact more people's lives!

This trip has been an incredible experience so far! It has been wonderful to see our group bond in a new way and see every student stretched as they grow in their faith. Local trip people you are amazing and I can't wait to see what happens in this upcoming week!

I'm praying for you all! What a blessing to be able to serve right here at home....there are so many needs! I know the Lord will use you for his glory, and that you'll grow in your relationships with him through these experiences.
