See You Next Year!

by Cecily McIlwain on July 19, 2019 in BOUNCE

             We concluded a great week of work in Victoria, TX! Everyone finished their projects and some even had the opportunity to build great relationships with their homeowners. We are so grateful for the ministry of our Worship Leader, Eric Martinez. He delivered the Word to us boldly with truth and grace. We praise God for his ministry and the gifts God has given him to engage with students. It has been a rewarding week ministering alongside Eric and these students.

            While there was heartbreak with the loss of three of our student’s grandfather this week, we were overjoyed to have them stay with us and be surrounded by the community of faith. That is the real lesson we learned this week. We can fight all of our battles together. Whether it is death, a hard day’s work, discouragement, storms (literal and metaphorical), etc. we can do it together with the faith community. God is faithful to supply us everything we need and what we need is each other.

            This has been a great week and we cannot wait to see how these students are going to bounce back home. We praise God for all of the students we served with this week. We want to see EVERYONE back next year!
