Missions Is A Lifestyle

by Amy Valenta on July 28, 2015 in Great Commandment

BOUNCERS woke up early this morning to eat breakfast and kick off their day with GO TIME! Go Time is a brief meeting where BOUNCERS all meet together in the parking lot at the lodging facility, are prayed for and sent off to begin work. A total of six ministry teams consisting of over 70 students and leaders went out into San Marcos and Wimberley to reflect the love of Christ through their service.

Anna Alvarado, a 14 year-old from Cowboy Fellowship, said she has learned that Missions shouldn't just be here. She lives pretty close to San Marcos, and it could have been them. She stated "Mission work should be a lifestyle, not a task. It can be done when you're walking down the street, in Walmart, or you can go and talk to that person in the back of the classroom."

BOUNCERS got a great start on their worksites here in San Marcos today. Despite the heat, students worked hard and accomplished a lot on their sites. Students installed insulation in mobile homes, painted, repaired walls, cleaned up brush, and packed up houses to be moved. Lunch today and for the rest of the week is being provided by our food service staff and is sent to sites with students. Lunch is accompanied each day by a student-led devotional.

The day concluded with a great night of worship. Worship speaker Randy Beggs talked about what it means to abide in Christ. He encouraged students to remember that Jesus is the vine- which means He gives us life. The service ended with a powerful time of worship singing hymns Jesus Paid It All and Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.

BOUNCERS are looking forward to resting tonight so they can be ready to go back out tomorrow and continue reflecting Christ to the cities of San Marcos and Wimberley!
