Memphis Day 3

Memphis Day 3- May 28, 2019
The Lord is continuing to use our students in Memphis! Today we had even more kids show up to VBS!  It has been so encouraging to our team of students and leaders as we continually see the Lord give us opportunities to share the Gospel. This afternoon, our VBS and construction teams divided up throughout the surrounding areas of Mosaic Church and covered the neighborhoods with prayer and picking up trash. Our students had opportunities to share the Gospel with people and pray with them as they walked around. We have seen one of our core values “We Serve Wherever We Are” on display this week.
Tonight we had a picnic next to the Mississippi River and let the students play games and fellowship together. We ended the night with team time back in the chapel where Luke Pruett encouraged our team. Luke is on staff with Choose 901. Choose 901 is a part of a nonprofit called City Leadership, which exists to recruit, develop, and catalyze leaders in the city of Memphis. Luke talked to our students about the importance of pouring into our community and the people around us. He challenged our students to speak truth and life into the people of Auburn and Opelika.
Luke reminded us: “When you journey into Auburn and Opelika and you speak ugliness you’re doing the work of the enemy. But when you speak words of joy and hope you are doing the work of the Kingdom.”
Our prayer as a staff is for our students to take these challenges and let it motivate them as we come back to our community in Auburn and Opelika.

Ways to pray:
Pray for our block party tomorrow night, that we will be able to have Gospel centered conversations with people from the community and bless the church of Mosaic.
Pray that our students continue building relationships with kids that come to VBS and that the Lord opens their hearts to receive the Good News we want to share!
Thank you for partnering with us in prayer this week!
