Well guys, we’ve put Work Day #2 under our belts!
It is HOT in Moore, this week. Wednesday the temperature was breaking one hundred, and we have college and adult participants on roofs. There’s a constant breeze, but this sun doesn’t play. While it’s rough, the weather hasn’t hindered these World Changers from completing their jobs. A couple of crews have been moving from home to home, completing work, and ministering to homeowners. We still have two more days of work, but God is already moving and giving opportunities to minister. After Wednesday of being on sites, our crew reporters brought back word that God has used us to present the gospel to 29 different individuals!! He’s given us opportunities to pray over and bless homeowners as well as other construction teams that are working alongside us to rebuild these homes.
Last night we had the privilege to worship with many of the Brookwood Baptist Youth who are hosting us this week. Kyle brought a message of hope. He shared with us that natural disasters and sickness occur in this world as a result of sin entering the world. Before mankind sinned, we lived in the Garden in perfect fellowship with God. Sin ruined that, BUT God allows devastation, sickness, and brokenness to bring us back to Him that He may receive glory through all circumstances.
Regardless of the tragedies we face, Christ is our HOPE because he has overcome this world! He overcame death. HE is the resurrection, and now He sits at the right hand of God and intercedes on our behalf. Hebrews 4: 14-16 says, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
Christ has lived a life in our shoes. He left His heavenly home, came to earth, was tempted, lived a perfect life, gave his life as a sacrifice for our sins, overcame death, and is now seated at the right hand of Christ as our intercessor! What a powerful scripture. Our God is the God of hope!
Please join us as we continue to pray for Moore, believing for great things throughout the rest of the week and long after we leave, as God continues his restoring work.
