That’s it! It’s all said and done! With the conclusion of this project in Slidell, all of the summer 2014 World Changers projects have officially come to a close. Through the ministry of students and their leaders, hundreds and thousands of lives have been changed all across the United States, Puerto Rico, and parts of Canada – and Slidell was no different! This week we had 16 crews on 20 worksites and that’s not all – the gospel was presented 338 times, 2 community members came to know Christ for the very first time, and 5 participants made the same decision for the first time! These are some amazing statistics, but the coolest part of these stats is that each number represents a person who may have never heard of Jesus before. The participants made a HUGE impact in Slidell this week and we are honored to have been a part of it.
This week we also raised over $1200 for Generation Send. This money will be used to aid and equip missionaries and church planters all across North America!

THIS WEEK IN MUNCIE WAS AWESOME!
Students gathered together to celebrate some of the awesome things God has done in Muncie this week by hosting a block party for the community and home-owners that we have worked with this past week.
This week, 10 people, that we know of, prayed to make Jesus Christ the Lord of their life with hundreds others hearing the presentation of the Gospel. Many people rededicated their lives, asked for prayer, or intently asked about how they can be involved in the work God is doing in Muncie.
Mark209 finished off the evening with a fun concert. They sang a joyful tune as they reminded the students that the joy they have experienced at World Changers can be experienced anywhere because of the awesome God we serve and Christians are allowed to have fun serving Him.
Now the real story begins. Students leave the comfort of a “mission trip” and are back home. Now is the best opportunity share what God has done in your life and simply allow your life to reflect His beauty. We are praying for y’all.
Thanks for all who came out to World Changers Muncie this year! We can’t wait to see y’all next year for World Changers Muncie 2015!

Projects are all but wrapped up here in Slidell. After another hard day of work, crews just have to put the finishing touches on their sites Friday. We didn’t meet for The Gathering tonight because after dinner most of the groups left to go explore New Orleans, which is about 30 minutes from here. They had lots of fun eating beignets at Cafe Du Monde and checking out the city while the rest of us played basketball and gaga ball back at the church. It was a great way to recharge before our last day of work tomorrow.
Tomorrow we are hosting a block party at the church. Pray that many people would come and would have a great time but more importantly that they would hear the gospel. This is a great opportunity for us to make a big fuss about Christ in this community and for his name to be glorified!
Check out these selfies. We love selfies.
Fun fact: there is a word that means second-to-last: “penultimate.” Today is the penultimate day for World Changers Tampa. Tomorrow the crews will work just as they have been, and in fact, 3 of the 4 churches are leaving tomorrow night! It’s always sad to see everybody go so quickly. During tonight’s worship service, Justin Aultman, our worship speaker, invited anyone who does not know Christ to come to their youth leader to make a decision, and although no one did at that time, there were some people who were in tears later, and I just think that was a testament to the power of Jesus Christ working through these folks this week. Please be praying that we all can finish strong and have a safe trip home tomorrow!
What a day we’ve had in Columbia! A few crews were transferred to some new projects because they worked too hard and finished their work early! We’re so thankful for their hard work and willingness to keep trucking and serving this community. We were able to visit some sites that were tackling everything from wheelchair ramps and house painting to staining and weed-pulling. There is lots to be done and the workers have been sent out to make things happen! Check out some of these crews at work!
Tonight, students were lead in worship during Concert of Prayer. We focused all of our attention on Christ and Christ alone. It’s never a bad idea to remind yourself of the Gospel and that’s exactly what we did. Christ in the beginning, His birth, His life and ministry and love of people, His death, His burial, and His resurrection. Because He lives, we too can live!
It’s been a great day here in Columbia. Tonight is the last night to send your students ECOURAGRAMS, so take full advantage! Pray for the crews as they wrap up their week tomorrow. Pray especially for the people they will minister to, that they would be able to share the Gospel with great boldness and courage!
Today was an awesome day at the worksites! Participants continued to work diligently and in the name of Jesus Christ! A lot got accomplished today and a few sites will even be finishing up tomorrow and off to help another crew! Several students talked about how they were able to evangelize to the people in their communities. Several of the staffers were even able to go out and visit the students today and witness their hard work and love for Christ! At the end of the day, participants got to come back to the church and unwind with a little bit a free time before our community night. For our community night we are able to bring a local band in that lead everyone in an outstanding time of worship to our King. Several students felt God tugging on their hearts tonight, which lead to some great conversations with group leaders and staffers about feeling called to missions, and God’s role in their lives! Needless to say the project this week is going completely amazing, God is definitely working in Eastland, TX and we can’t wait to see what he will do next!!
Below are some photos of student working at their sites! Enjoy!!
Hey Family and Friends!
It has been another fantastic day here at World Changers Muncie. Crew’s were able to go back to their worksites and continue the work they started yesterday. In fact many crews were able to take a break in the afternoon and work on a few community projects in a local park, food pantry, and nursery home. Community projects are a breath of fresh air to crew members as they can step away from the hammers, nails, and paint to invest in the city in a different way, sharing with people why they came from all over America to serve in Muncie.
This evening was Concert of Prayer. Concert of Prayer this year is centered solely around Jesus, from birth to the throne. It is a beautiful sight to see people from all across America come together with hands lifted high to praise the Almighty God.
Please continue to pray for your loved ones here in Muncie. Pray especially for energy. Praise God for the numerous presentations of the Gospel! One site alone shared their faith 12 times today! I keep telling y’all and I am reminded daily, God is doing great stuff here in Muncie!
“My son, obey my words,
and treasure my commands.
Keep my commands and live;
protect my teachings
as the pupil of your eye. ” Provers 7:1-2
Our crews headed out to their worksites today for an awesome second day of ministry!
Today many of our crews had the opportunity to walk around their respective neighborhoods to meet people and form connections with the community. Great conversations were had, and lots of invitations were handed out for the community night that we will be hosting tomorrow!
We ended our night with the Concert of Prayer. We had a powerful time of worship focusing on the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Christ!
Please pray for our upcoming community night! Pray that God would use this night to bring people from the Chesapeake community into relationship with Him! We want people to encounter the Gospel tomorrow night.
