We had a great time with the youth leaders from Pickstock church today!  They brought about 20 young people out to 8 Mile ranging in age from 5-18 years old.  It was amazing to see these young people lead the group in games, worship, Scripture reenactment and inviting neighborhood kids to join.  And all of this while dodging bouts of rain and weather that prevented kite making.  Even so, we were all moved by the passion and excitement each of these children displayed. Many of us were able to connect with the children through conversation, fun activities and worship. God is moving and working in 8 MILE and it was very clear today.

 Tomorrow we head to Youth Enhancement Services!  We are excited to reconnect with the girls we met last year and meet the new students attending the school.  Please keep the following in your prayers:

On Tuesday 3/10 – pray for open minds and hearts with the girls at Youth Enhancement Services (YES), pray that we will make meaningful friendships and share God’s love with the youth. Pray for the team that will be leading the girls in a study of Women in the Bible.  Pray for barriers to be lowered and free and open communication between the groups.  Pray for the team as they begin construction of the chicken coups.

We have some great pictures and will continue try to add them as WiFi signal allows!
