In regards to Eaton FPC Mission Trip to Blue Knob, PA 2017
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight.
On this Mission Trip, we focused on 4 important names of God. Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Individually, each of these names are outstanding characteristics that make up our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and with these traits, we build and break and remodel ourselves. We scaffold. Constantly life can break us or build us. Constantly we run into hardships but also find our greatest hopes in life. This week was our full of week of scaffolding. We sweat bullets, wore down our bodies, scraped our skin (particularly by an evil bench) and bruised our veins. But from all of this hard work, we witnessed God and he did truly straighten our path. Through our friends and strangers, we felt him and used the strength he gave us to help others and carry on our progress to a better cause. Personally, this week is single handily the best week I have yet to experience. At the very beginning I knew only a small handful of people …and by the end of the week, I was laughing with my new family. I’ve never experienced a community this close… I’ve never experienced such hard working friends who will fight to love and care and make this world a better place to live in. I was meant to be here this week and experience God in this light. I can quite honestly say that this is the one time I have truly felt at home and with God. This is Scaffolding. You, me, God. Scaffolding will never disappear. We’ll see it throughout our lives and through others because we will never stop working on ourselves…. Just like our Wonderful Counselor who guides us, Our Prince Of Peace who calms us, Our Everlasting Father who loves us, Our Mighty God who will never stop working with us as well. Thank you all for this experience you’ve given me, thank you for helping me find God in such a beautiful light and thank you for helping me find a family.
