The BOUNCE staff is very pleased with the results of the week of ministry in Mineral Wells! All worksites have been completed thanks to the hard work of all the BOUNCERS this week. We've seen the restoration of homes and hope. Christ has been reflected well this week in Mineral Wells. A total of six worksites were completed. Houses got new roofs, paint jobs and other improvements. Before BOUNCERS left, they presented their homeowner with a Bible as a gift.
Peter Simpson, Youth Pastor at FBC Copperas Cove said that the kids on his worksite made friends with each other quickly. They fought through the heat and other barriers to accomplish their task. Peter's team even met the two kids living next door and spent time with them. They, too, were presented with Bibles as well as other gifts from BOUNCERS.
The night concluded with the WRAP PARTY, which highlighted some of the important and memorable parts of the mission, including the offering, media coverage and all the people who made BOUNCE Mineral Wells possible. Once again, we'd like to thank the City of Mineral Wells, Mineral Wells Independent School District, The Mineral Wells Chamber of Commerce and The Mineral Wells Ministerial Alliance for all they've done this week! We'd also like to thank several churches in the area for providing lunch to our BOUNCERS at the worksites.
We pray that BOUNCE was a blessing with everyone involved. Thanks to Brazos Meadows Baptist Church of Waco, First Baptist Church Copperas Cove, First United Methodist Church of Farmington, NM and Sharpstown Baptist Church for bringing us student missionaries this week to reflect Christ in Mineral Wells, Texas. Pray for safe travels for groups as they go back home. Pray that students' lives have truly been changed and they will go back home and share their experience with more and more people. Once again, Thanks to all of our BOUNCERS, and we hope that you all decide to BOUNCE again next year!
