The BOUNCE staff is very pleased with the week in Waco! We are proud of all the BOUNCERS who came this week to reflect Christ's love here in the city. We are very excited to say that all of the houses were completed today! A total of ten homes got either a new roof, a new paint job and even new steps and a new ramp. Most importantly, however, the homeowners were presented with the gospel through the words and service of many students and leaders this week. Homeowners were also given a bible by BOUNCERS.
Kolten Porterfield, a 15 year-old from Kingwood's First Baptist Church said that coming into this week, he didn't know the impact that roofing someone's house could have on them. Kolten said that their homeowner was so moved the love shown to her that she broke into tears when the team prayed for her before leaving her house.
Brian Pearce, Youth Pastor at Kingwood's First Baptist Church said that he saw God move in his youth group this week. He said that he saw growth in the bond of his community and deepened discipleship in his students. "Our students' lives were impacted as they served the least of these" said Pearce.
Our Waco mission was a blessing to everyone involved. We would like to thank Christoval Baptist Church, First Baptist Church Kingwood, Southwest Park Baptist Church and Woodridge Baptist Church for bringing student missionaries this week! We pray for safe travels for these groups as they head home Saturday morning and we hope that you all choose do "BOUNCE" again next year!
