Hard Work Instead of the Beach
Asbury Spring Break Mission Trip
1 John 2:14 I have written to you who are God’s children because you know the Father. I have written to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning.I have written to you who are young in the faith because you are strong. God’s word lives in your hearts, and you have won your battle with the evil one.
The high school seniors from Asbury United Methodist church in Tulsa, Ok decided to consecrate their lives for Jesus and serve Him with all of their strength. A Group 68 teenagers and leaders looked like a mighty army. They chose to spend their Spring Break not at the beach nor at their homes playing some video games, but behind a wheelbarrow carrying gravel and sand, building up a sweat as they served the Paraíso Neighborhood.
Sunday we started the week off with a Family Festival. It allowed the team the chance to get into the neighborhood and interact with the kids. Some unwanted neighbors have moved into the area and the team took time to pray.
Engadi is assisting one of the local public school by building 4 more classrooms so they will have room for more students. Our desire and out goal is to impact the community as a whole. Asbury’s team poured the second floor concrete slab on the second of four classrooms we are building in the Paraíso Neighborhood’s public schools. They also poured the foundation for the third classroom.
Thursday before taking time to go enjoy Lake Atitlan the team did a prayer walk around the soccer field. They prayed for Engadi’s leadership, its provision, protection from evil and future for the kids of the Paraíso Neighborhood. God is working in amazing ways!
What a blessing to see these young people pour their lives into the community. Thank you for coming and being a part of Engadi! Come back soon!
