As we drove through the mountainous terrain of Vermont, we couldn't help but be excited to see what God would do in our first full week of the semester. We arrived at Websterville Baptist just as a hard rain set in. After, getting everything set up, we were all soaked yet excited to see what God had in store. As we talked Pastor Brian Fecher, it was encouraging to see and hear his burden for his flock. Pastor Fecher continued to minister to our hearts through the week as did the church people.
The church also had a christian school, and it was a blessing to be with the students and staff each morning. The team did music and preached in chapels, as well as visited the classes during the day. One day, we ended up taking a field trip to some rock quarries that were within walking distance of the school. At the end of the walk through the quarries, we arrived at one of the most breath-taking look out points anyone in our team has ever seen. Overtaken by the beauty of God’s creation, we prayed with the high schoolers, just thanking God for his power over creation and asking that the Gospel would go forth throughout the valley that we were looking over.
Friday wrapped up the week with an Irish Concert. Even with the mandolin snapping two mandolin strings and all, God still used the Irish Concert to bring many unsaved visitors to hear the good news of Jesus. That’s why we do what we do--to share the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ. Looking back on this week, we really couldn’t ask for a better kick off week to the semester. We give God all the glory.
