Week 3 from Palm Bay
From Fort Myers, we traveled back across Florida to Faith Baptist Church in Palm Bay. This was our first time at Faith! The week started Sunday and culminated in an Irish Concert on Thursday night. Each night before the service we had pre-sessions (short times of connecting around the Word prior to the service!). Aaron has been teaching the adults a series on prayer. Riley leads the teen pre-sessions and has been drawing principles on God’s will from the book of Ruth. From Naomi to Ruth to Boaz, we see that God can use anyone to accomplish His will. It’s comforting to know that God is working in our lives whether we see what He’s doing or not.
It’s always encouraging to see the numbers grow each night. From the kids to the adults, attendance increased each night and the auditorium was filled both Wednesday (Family Fun Night) and Thursday (Irish Concert). A highlight for the kids came when they reached their goal for the week and got to slam 3 whip cream pies into Ryan’s face/ear/hair . (Ryan has since decided he will never use whip cream again)! The biggest highlight for the team was not only the relationships we were able to build but also that three people turned to Christ!
In the midst of the busyness of ministry, its easy to focus on others things and miss the most important thing, showing Christ to others. Praise God that through us, and sometimes in spite of us, He continues His work of redeeming fallen people and restoring them to the image of His Son. We trust these updates are as encouraging for you to read as it for us to write them. Thank you for your prayers!
