Seattle Mission – Day Seven

Randy’s thinking . . . . . . .

. . . .. .that this next statement will seem a bit insensitive to some.  Especially since most of our readers are in Texas and, well, it is summer there.  Today the temperature gauge in my van reached 80 degrees for the first time.  It didn’t stay there long but I actually saw it hit 80.  Crazy!

Seriously, just when it didn’t seem possible for the students to kick it up another notch–they have.  Today, in  many ways was the best yet.  Connections are being made and people are seeing Christ as students (1) do menial work in a shady yard in Bellevue (2) help children learn Bible stories (2) teach soccer and basketball (3) transform an old church into a more functional space and (4) show the Love of Christ to children and their moms–what it means to serve and love unconditionally.

Please pray for tomorrow as an invitation to faith in Christ will be extended for people to respond at several mission sites.  Seattle is a challenging place to do that–many times those decisions take months and even years, because this is not a place that values people of faith (generally).  Pray for the Spirit’s moving and transforming in our Friday sessions.  Further, pray for us to finish strong as we complete our working tasks.  In the future, we hope to share more about specific ways you can pray for situations we have encountered.  Thanks so much for lifting us up to the Father all of these days–we can tell that you are praying!
