Update from Westoak Woods Baptist Church
First full day

by Isaac Fry | June 18, 2015 1:12 PM

Today, the group got into the midst of ministry and spread the word of God. At 8:00, we woke up and ate the wonderful breakfast provided by the hotel. We took a group photo and we socialized over the amazing food. We talked ministry ideas, plans, and revised itineraries. We got to know each other and got hyped for the day of spreading the Word. We drove to the church (in a town called Evaton), and we were surprised to see some of the kids on the road cheering for us as we drove by. Once we got to the church, we were greeted with the presence of God. We went inside the church and talked about what we were going to do and then finalized our plans. And, of course, we did it in the name of God. After the amazing lunch prepared by women of the church, we went off into our mission field. Our plan: split into two groups and do a community walk. We had a wonderful time spreading the word about Christ Revival Ministries (Pastor Josiah's church) and the ministries that would be happening at the church (medical clinics, mini VBS, evangelism services, and Sunday worship.) Many amazing encounters happened during today's ministry work. Harold had many conversations with the people in the community, Mayzie was hugged by every kid who came near her, Chris seemed to win the hearts of a few girls, and Josheph and Noah developed an interest in "bunnychow", a South African "meal in a wrap". After we got back to the church, we got plans organized for tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday. We then prayed for the leadership of the church, and the team let their hearts out. It was definitely a time of worship. Once we were done praying for the church, we ate another fabulous meal prepared by the church ladies, and we were off to the hotel. Tomorrow we will wake up at the crack of dawn to make it to the local school by 7:30 a.m. to lead school devotions. We're looking forward to a day full of ministering to the kids in this community.
