Whether through the change of plans, ministries, or change of heart – this summer has been filled with a lot of changes. With every change comes a difficulty, yet also comes so much growth. As Ministry Team One shifts to serve with Capernaum ministry and Ministry Team Two, serving at Celebration Community Church: Be Active Camp, we have to adapt and change location.
Here are some ways that the students and leaders have experienced growth in their own lives – some highlights and memories from the summer so far, how God has been near to them, and everything in between.
“This summer God has shown time and time again that we are involved in a ministry of presence – of being with and that a lot of times that’s enough” -K.H
“I feel like God has shown Himself near to me by providing me with a community and direction for me and my future through our sessions.” – C.S
“God has shown Himself to me by working in my relationships in unexpected ways, and helping me through my doubts and fears in the magnificent way that only He can.” – Anonymous
“Going to this MK2MK project helped me move out of my comfort zone.” C.S.
“God has met me here in all the love people have shown me, especially when I’m not doing okay and I’m lashing out or isolating myself. God is continually reminding me that I’m worth loving because He died for me.” – Anonymous
“God has shown himself to be near to me in many ways. One: through the relationships and quality time he has blessed me with. Two: The personal quiet time I got to spend with him and seeing how God is woven through everything we are doing here” -J.K
“My takeaways from ministry include that there are so MANY DIFFERENT ways to serve – with my hands / in physical labor, by leading worship, by playing with kids, and so much more. And, they all glorify God!” S.N.
“It has been great to see my overseas friends again!” -Anonymous
From self-introductions and meeting each other for the first time to intentional conversations with one another and those we are doing ministry with; amidst all the different changes, project two has been filled with nothing but laughter, joyous moments, and a lot of growth. Growing to know each other, oneself, and God.
As we are nearing the end of Project Two, please be in prayer for:
- The last week of ministry, as we are going to be evangelizing at UCF.
- There to be a sense of nearness to be felt amongst oneself with their own personal relationship with God.
- Goodbyes to be said and expressed well.
- A smooth transition between the last week of ministry into a time of debrief with one another.
