World Changers Trip (Part 2)

World Changers Trip (Part 2)

In part 1, I shared a story about meeting Charles, a neighbor to the house we were working on. Part 2 gives an account of a couple more experiences from the trip. On Thursday, our whole group made a decision to go prayer walking down the streets after work. We saw that there was a man sitting outside on some old patio furniture.

World Changers Trip (Part 1)

On June 10-15, 2013, 17 youth from Crossroads Fellowship went on a mission trip with a group called “World Changers” to West Memphis, Arkansas.

At this past week’s meeting, we continued to bring up ways we can honor others as well as WHY we, as Christians should honors others. Why?

Things are to Clock, People are to Compass

What doesn’t fit in this to-do list? Review for test take test head to practice end it with Melanie Obviously, the last one. And why? As we discussed in our lesson, the last one deals with a person!
