semester 2 / weeK 3

            This week has been filled with anticipation to say nonetheless. It started off with a little Mystery Monday that got us in the mood for Ireland, which was visiting the Titanic Museum here in Branson! It was very interesting! They had quite a bit of actually artifacts from the ship that made it feel real. That had a bunch of fun interactive stations for example how cold the water was and to see how long you could keep your hand it in. It was a lot of fun! Especially because it was constructed in Belfast, Ireland!

            This week our speaker was David Marvin who is a long time friend of mine. David works Watermark in Dallas, TX. Watermark is a huge church in Dallas that sees about 12,000 people in a week. David specifically works for a ministry they have called The Porch that caters to about 2,300 young adults every Tuesday night. He talked to us about missions but not how we usually think of it. Most of the time when we Americans think that going on a missions trip consists of going to a different country far off. This is totally wrong. We are always on a mission to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ! One thing that stood out to me was that we are ambassadors for Christ. We are representing where we are from, heaven, in a different country, the US. An ambassador is usually of high rank too which tells how important our job actually is. In Luke 19:1-10 it says “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” We as part of Jesus’ church are His hands and feet. We are His messengers for His Gospel. David was a great speaker to have right before we go to Northern Ireland for a month. He was very interactive which spiced it up a little.

            Tomorrow, in less than 24 hours, I will be in Ireland! I am ecstatic! For the next month, my home will be Ireland and you better believe I will be blogging about it. Stay tuned!

Until next time.
