Check out this lovely group! They have been putting in the hours these past two days. They were back up at 6am for breakfast and went back out to their worksites at 7am. Early mornings will not deter this group! This morning started of quite nice, but this afternoon the rain started falling, pouring actually. Not to worry though, there is plenty of inside work that these students willing jumped on.
Tonight is our last night of worship together. We will be taking up the missions offering during service tonight. This week our offering is going to Generation SEND. Generation SEND is a ministry of the North American Mission Board designed to immerse students into an urban context to gain a practical knowledge of the realities of church planting and urban ministry in a metropolitan area. This summer, NAMB will host 3 cities for the first Generation SEND experience in New York City, Portland and Atlanta.  The students who will participate this summer will be experiencing a variety ministry in the city while church planting leaders pour into their lives. At the end of the summer, the goal is for students to have a heart for the cities, a passion and working knowledge of church planting, a charge to mobilize their peers for the task, and to prayerfully consider planting a church in one of the great cities of North America. This is an opportunity for students to support students just a few years older than them that are pursuing the possibility of full-time missions. How cool is that!!
