Yesterday was the last real day of our mission trip to DC. I think it ended well.
In the morning, we returned to Food & Friends, where members of our team prepared and delivered meals. In addition, we interacted with some youth from another mission trip.
In the afternoon, we went to Union Station, where we broke up into three groups and did the God Test. This was by far the highlight of the day. Union Station was an interesting place to do evangelism because for the most part people were busy and uninterested in speaking. We ended up in the food court where some were at least somewhat willing to interact. But in the end, at least two people prayed to be saved, and many others were encouraged through the God Test. We were thankful for God’s faithfulness in this challenging moment.
At night we, came together and shared the things that we saw God do in and for one another. I think everyone left encouraged by the evidences of grace in each of their lives.
It is amazing to me the energy and vitality that evangelism creates. It is clear to me that one major cause of spiritual lethargy is from not being on mission to share the gospel. When you are forced to put your reputation on the line and are willing to be rejected, there is something amazing that happens when you get the chance to share the good news with someone.
Pray that each of our teens leaves this experience and takes a step forward, rather than settling back into their own routines.
