Praise God for a good first day!
Praise God for a safe day of travel!
Praise God that we got settled into our fun, dorm style
We spent a good part of the afternoon at 8 Mile. Kenny and Tina Logan
are in charge of the youth ministry, but Tina was in a car accident last
week, and Kenny is spending most of his time at the hospital with her.
The youth from the youth group have such ownership of the group that
they are invested in it and are determined to make sure we have this
children's/youth outreach program tomorrow. We met first with the youth
group president, Yensi (an amazing leader at only 17 years old). She
began by introducing herself to us, and then began introducing the rest
of the youth to us. We learned all about their various ministries and
community service projects.
The rest of our day was spent in worship, planning, playing some games
with the kids at 8 mile, and now we are thrilled that it's bed time!
Tomorrow [a holiday in Belize] we are meeting up with the 8 Mile youth
group for a full day of youth and children's activity. Depending on the
size of the group we attract we might be able to start our weekly
Thanks for all the prayers! Love always!!!

words, actions, and reactions as they seek
Him on this trip.

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ
Jesus: Who, being in very nature God,did not consider equality with God
something to be used to his own advantage;rather, he made himself
nothingby taking the very nature of a servant,being made in human
likeness. Phil. 2:5-7
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of
yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with
sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each
of you. Romans 12:3
