MISSION TRIP 2010: DAY 2 (CAMPFIRE)

The spirit was present tonight as it moved the hearts of those yearning for more. A good portion of them came forth tonight to either re-affirm a committment they know they've lost or let go of and to learn more about this awesome God in their lives. I won't name names, but there were youth present from each church.
The long and short-it was all a 'God thing'. Chris and I threw out the script! The spirit led us in a different direction-yet kept us on course concerning our core message. There were tears tonight and I pray that they will continue to be pliable (not sure on spelling) to God's calling in their lives. Be sure to check out Facebook for some updates and pictures throughout the day...there isn't much time for Chris and I to get online and blab on and on...but know we give it the 'ol college try.
Thank you all for your feed back...I will be sure to send the messages onto them. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as the week goes on for I know there is more in store for us here in Estes-this is only day 2. I'm looking forward to what God has planned for day three.
-Oh and on a special note: we ended up having our campfire in our meeting room/lodge...it's a different feel, but a good one, intimate and close. *We had no choice really-the rain came down and it was coming down good!
Well, I'm signing off, I'm off to bed!
