Outreach is a big part of what we do here on project and I thought I’d share a little bit on what it looks like! One of our outreach opportunities recently was just going out into the community and engaging in conversations to hear what people’s thoughts were on God, Jesus, sin, etc. Our group was assigned to the wharf and while we were able to engage in some spiritual conversations with people, it was more about listening to what they had to say and letting them know we were interested and really cared about their opinion. It was also a great practice for initiating conversations. Not to mention, we got to be on the wharf at sunset….so lovely! Did I mention I love it here?
Another outreach we did this past weekend was throwing a big barn party at the Pan. For the past few summers, one of our director’s friends comes in and brings his massive smoker and graciously provides and cooks all of the food for the party. Then, we get to invite our co-workers to come and hang out and eat free food! It was a great time of being able to engage our co-workers in conversations that we normally wouldn’t be able to in a work setting. While it was a really fun night full of eating, dancing, and games, it was also a time for our guests to be exposed to the gospel. Two of our students got up and shared their testimonies and told how God has changed their lives. Continue to pray that they may understand the gospel in a real way so that they may come to know the saving grace of Jesus! Here’s some fun pictures of the night!
Also, sorry for the awkward post. I really have no idea how this blog thing works and I can’t seem to get pictures to be inserted in between the paragraphs. If anyone has any help for me, I would not be opposed. Thanks for checking in!
