What a wonderful first day in Chicago!
We started the day by attending the 8am worship service at Christ Bible Church. Pastor Ford delivered a powerful message that highlighted God's design for family and challenged our students to be obedient to what God's Word says about family and marriage. We were blessed by the beautiful worship music and Pastor Ford's passion behind his preaching!
We then began our site seeing and enjoyed visiting The Bean and other sites at Millennium Park.
Afterwards we enjoyed lunch at Navy Pier...
And then headed to the Skydeck at Willis Tower! We were blessed with an incredible view of the city and students enjoyed a devo time by the Southside windows.
Then we went back to Sunshine where Joel gave an orientation about Sunshine Gospel Ministries and safety. Joel then began what I know will be a powerful, challenging, and exciting dialogue about God's heart for the poor and his heart for us.
We are now at the church where we will be staying for the rest of the nights. Students learned which work groups they will be in and will begin serving in those groups tomorrow morning! We had lights out at 11 and they are all fast asleep.
Thank you so much for your prayers! You can also support us by writing notes in the comments section on the blog! Your note can be specific to your student (which we will read out loud...it's so fun!) or a note to the entire team.
Keep praying for us!
Love from the 2015 Chicago Team!
