The morning began with another wonderful breakfast prepared by our kitchen crew. We heard testimonies from two young ranch students and also from two JFBC participants. Our trip leader also did a devotional on the success of sharing the Gospel with a student in Albania and also a local friend. The critical message he shared is that we should never delay or procrastinate in sharing the Good News as we never know when we may run out of time.
After cleaning the cabins, we returned for the 10:30 am service at Covenant Community Church. The message was delivered by Brian McDonnell, COO of Wears Valley Ranch and Associate Pastor of Covenant Community Church. The message featured Ephesians 6:10-23 - Wearing the Armor of God.
Afterwards we shared a good old fashioned potluck lunch in the dining hall with the congregation and listened to Travis and Laura Sawyer, two missionaries serving in Kenya. They gave a presentation on their children's school and children's home.
Also during the weekend many of us toured the new chapel. We were so pleased to see the progress that has been made and looking forward to its completion in Spring of 2018. (See pictures below)
We look forward to returning next year to serve again at Wears Valley Ranch!
