Alabama we a comin

There are nine high school students from Grace heading to Bayou La Batre, Alabama this Saturday. Three adult leaders will also be accompanying them :) While there, the students will be assisting with Hurricane Katrina relief and doing neighborhood kids clubs. This is going to be a fantastic opportunity for them to grow spiritually. I really don't think they have any idea how this trip is going to impact their life. I am excited to see what I learn from it also. Getting out of your comfort zone can do so much to help you grow.
In preparation for Saturday, tonight at JOLT we will be studying Acts chapter 10. It is the amazing story of Cornelius and how he received a vision and sent for Peter. Peter also received a vision, about how he was to go to Cornelius. I guess God didn't want any miscommunication on this one. The moral of the story is how everyone is good enough to receive the Gospel. We as believers need to take it to all the world. It also challenges us not to take someones answer that they are religious. Cornelius was a religious man, but he didn't know the truth about Jesus. Our world needs to hear about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and what he did for us on the cross.
Who can you tell about Jesus today? Go and do it!

We wish all of you a safe trip to Alabama. Have fun and work hard. We look forward to hearing about the trip.
This does bring back fond memories of my High School youth trip---way back when.
