Team Buckeye- Day 15: The Pittsburgh Scene

Pittsburgh bound! After meeting together in the morning from host homes, we were headed to the beautiful city of Pittsburgh. It took us about five hours which during that time we had alone time with God, enjoyed some extended bus time (with some naps thrown in) and breaker for a delicious lunch at Primanti Brothers- a fun restaurant with a Pittsburgh Flare. We then arrived at Urban Impact- a ministry that serves the youth of the community where...

Team Buckeye- Day 14: Weeds and Sunscreen

One thing that encourages us is when other fellow believers encourage us in our walk with the Lord and in this little season of being on Operation Barnabas. When we arrived at the church, Jake, another campus ministry pastor shared his testimony with us today. He shared about how even though he had a plan and was trying to turn away from the Lord’s plan for him, the Lord won and he is now serving him faithfully. It was an encouragement to us...

Team East – Rocky Road – July 6th

Today was hot. More humid than hot, probably, today was a day full of outreach and fun (sometimes even simultaneously). The morning started out with breakfast, followed by a teaching time led by the supreme, magnificent, and humble-to-the-core leader Tristan, who is great. The students learned about the importance of loving others and got to discuss who in their lives they needed to show love to. After this teaching time, StreetWise had morning...

The conference focuses on how to interact and share the gospel with people of different cultures and classifications. This morning, StreetWise had its first session on reaching unchurched people, and the rest of the day was geared towards putting that into practice. Before the...

Team Buckeye- Day 13: Such a hard working team

Sleep. Sleep is good. Sleep is our friend. So people sleep in. That we did! It felt nice but you know what they say, if you get too much sleep you get even more tired. I think that was the case for most of us today. Laundry day again!!!!! We went to the same place and a few of the students went around talking to people, while others finished up their memory verses. After we finished loading everything, we headed straight to Pickerington. The...

Happy Birthday America. You don’t look a day over 1862. The day started early for Team East.

Team Buckeye- Day 12: The Parades Went Well

Happy 4th of July everyone!!! I hope that it has been a great day for you filled with food, fireworks, family time,   patriotic clothing and parades.
