We are excited to announce that all of our students arrived safely in Waco, ready for an action-packed week of BOUNCE! We welcomed 138 Students and leaders from 4 different churches. BOUNCERS this week are from Christoval Baptist Church, First Baptist Church Kingwood, Southwest Park Baptist Church of Abilene and Woodridge Baptist Church of Kingwood.
Students were excited to arrive at Columbus Avenue. They are ready to serve God and see what He has in store for them this week.
Alex Penn, a 17-year-old from FBC Kingwood said that this week she hopes to make an impact on someone's life. She said that she is most looking forward to worshipping and spreading the love of Christ to the people she's serving.
Shortly after arriving, BOUNCERS went to the BOUNCE BASH which is a high-energy time to meet Team BOUNCE, sing songs, play games and have a little fun. Students also had an opportunity to meet their ministry team who they will be serving alongside for this week of BOUNCE. The evening closed with a worship session and a reflection time for the students with their youth groups to focus on God and His purposes for them this week. Worship Speaker Brian Pearce talked about leaving everything behind to follow Jesus. Students had an opportunity to reflect on what they could give up.
Ministry teams will be up early on Tuesday morning to be commissioned and sent out to begin work for the week. The projects will mostly include painting and roofing. BOUNCERS will be working through the morning and afternoon from Tuesday through Friday. Pray for their health and motivation to keep working despite the hot weather.
