Another Ministry Trip ~ Another Opportunity!
This week, I'm requesting prayer for a ministry team in Philadelphia. Our son is part of a church high school team that has gone there to minister in the city through an organization called CSM. The team and their leaders left on Sunday morning. On Monday, they toured the city, and saw fireworks. Today, their ministry begins. Please pray for team unity. The leaders have said over and over again how impressed they are with this team. Pray that God uses them effectively while they are there -- and of course for safety. We are especially excited to hear how God has used them.
You can read more about CSM's (Center for Student Missions) ministry in Philadelphia HERE. Their mission is "to provide an effective urban ministry experience that transforms lives, influences churches and communities, and honors Christ."
The objective of this trip is to expose the heart of God to students in relationship to the world in areas of justice, mercy, service, and evangelism. The city-based trip will largely center on "relational" projects -- stretching students to interact with a wide variety of people.
Our son has also traveled to Toronto with CSM, and thoroughly enjoyed the work there. I'm praying that he will be blessed beyond measure this week. Thanks for your prayers!
