OB Team 123 July 27- Ducks for Dayz!

Today was a pretty laid back day of debriefing! We were at Polaris Mall today for a while to finish up exit interviews and to allow the students to have some more mall evangelism time. Good conversations were had in both contexts and the time was used wisely! For the rest of the afternoon we had a teaching time and then partnered with Polaris Grace and the Duck Dynasty night here at the church. Students got to help with parking and hospitality...

OB Team 314 July 27- Duck Dynasty

Today was a day full of ministry for Team 314 as we worked alongside Grace Polaris.

Following lunch we loaded the bus and...

Today was our last full day of ministry and it was one to truly celebrate about! The students returned from host homes this morning and spent their hour with God and took time to fill out personal evaluations from this summer. These evaluations are a great way for students to think back over this summer and realize what God has done in their lives. After completing these evaluations we spent time in our Discipleship groups. This was another...

Today was an incredible and unique experience for Team 123. We had the opportunity for the majority of our day to be involved with a ministry called Happy Hearts.

It was incredible to be a part of and to see the students be stretched in very new ways that they have not been so far this summer.  The students got broken up into different...
