Yesterday was the final day of ministry. It is hard to believe that we are packing up and starting to head home this morning. It has been a full week of ministry here in the San Francisco/Bay Area. The lack of sleep, the lack of personal space, the lack of quality knives to spread the peanut butter for sandwiches has all been worth it!
SG#1 spent yesterday at the Alemeda County Community Food Bank. They spent then afternoon talking with homeless, trying to meet needs in People’s Park in Berkeley.
SG#2 spent yesterday morning at St. Vincent’s Day Home and delivered meals in the Tenderloin with Project Open Hand. (If you want a refresher on these activities, be sure to check previous posts.)
After completing the days ministry activities, we got to enjoy tamales with the other churches serving in SF this week (there are 100+ students and leaders here this week), and then had a time of sharing what we had learned this week. Fee & Cody were the ones from our group who shared.
After the big group sharing our group spent the next 45-60 minutes debriefing our week together. The students shared quite deeply about what they saw, experienced and how it was shaping their faith. Things were shared like:
There were lots of great things that our students are processing. It has been a great week together. We look forward to coming home and sharing more with you all. Thanks for following along, for your comments, prayers and support!
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
(1 Corinthians 13:13 ESV)
