First Baptist Church of Westwood Lake
Our team is back together after a few weeks of rest during the holidays! Everyone had a sweet time celebrating with family over the past several weeks. The team met up in Miami at First Baptist of Westwood Lake, and we jumped right in with preparations for a full week of ministry with the church and the Christian school!
Sunday through Tuesday night we held our regular evening services with the church family, and on Wednesday evening, we had our first Family Fun Night of 2023! It did not disappoint, and we had an absolute blast laughing and cheering together during our tic tac toe challenge.
On Thursday, we hosted an outdoors dodgeball tournament, and we had over 100 teenagers from the church and school show up both to watch and compete. It was quite the busy evening, and we had a fun time with all the kids! In the middle of the evening, Aaron had the opportunity to share the Gospel with the kids before we had pizza and finished the tournament.
We ended our time at First Baptist with our Irish concert on Friday night. It was an enjoyable time of making music, and Aaron was able to share the gospel with the many people that came out for the concert.
We also led several chapels for the K-12 grades during the week. Hudson and Aaron led the teen chapels Monday through Thursday, and on Monday and Wednesday, the whole team got to participate in the elementary chapels with Aaron and Josh leading. The kids were eager to listen and be involved, and we had fun interacting with them. Please pray for the hearts of the teenagers from the school this week, and that God would continue to work in them and soften their hearts.
Our first week back on the road was filled with many wonderful people and experiences, and we are so thankful for our time of partnering in ministry with the people at First Baptist!
