Today students were sent out into Kingwood, TX to fulfill the Great Commission by sharing the gospel while rebuilding homes. Brian Pearce, the Mission Coordinator, prayed over the students before he sent them out to their work sites for the week. Brian encouraged the students to consider making disaster recovery work a habit in their life so that the Church may be known for the way that it is quick to help those in need. The Collegiate Staff waved students good-bye as they left Kingwood First Baptist Church. The majority of the Teams served in trailer parks either doing heavy demolition work or installing metal roofs. Bouncers maintained positive attitudes even amidst the heavy rain.
Tonight the Bounce Missions Offering was taken up during worship, and together Bouncers donated over $65o! Bounce is so thankful for the generosity of the students and the adult volunteers who donated to the Bounce Missions Offering. The proceeds from the Bounce Mission Offering will go towards the continued disaster recovery work in Harvey affected areas.
During worship, Carlos Francis, the Worship Speaker, taught students how to discern the voice of God; through studying God's word. Carlos reminded students that studying God's word is the only way that we will be able to hear God's voice clearly so that we may obey Him and glorify Him in all that we do. Carlos then challenged Bouncers to go out to their work sites tomorrow empowered by the Holy Spirit and ready to be a witness for Christ. Carlos' prayer for Bouncers is that they would seek to hear God's voice and then respond in obedience, "Here I am, send me."
