Yesterday our journey to New York to serve others and the Lord began, within that trip down we encountered the love of God shown through many different people. From all the big grins, waving and honking at our decorative cars with “honk for Jesus” and “we ️ Jesus” written all over the windows , to the hotel letting us all stay there and providing all us hungry kids with food and coupons to all the appreciation and prayers people are sending for us!
Then today we were warmly welcomed at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church by Father Daniel and the rest of the community where we were preached too, then they provided us with a delicious lunch of pulled pork sandwiches, pasta and salad!! During the service we were preached to about Jesus feeding 5,000 people with fish and bread and the light of God being spread out through an example of a rainbow. Part of the scripture reading from this morning really spoke to me about week were about to take on , it was Ephesians 3:14 “I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with the power through his spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…”. I enjoy going to other churches and seeing how others practice there religion however, I’ll always like how MUMC does things the best!!!
Right now we’re about an hour outside of our destination Rochester New York! and I couldn’t be more excited to get this week started and see the work of Jesus through new and returning work campers!!!
