Well 2,100 miles, a busted tire, way too many bathroom breaks, and 25 tired team members later and we are back from New Orleans. It was a terrific week, and one in which I was blessed to see the Body of Christ from 7 different churches, nearly as many schools, and ages that ranged from 15 to ummm much older, come together as one team to serve and love others.
I have tons of stories I could share from the trip, but instead I’ve asked several of our trip participants to share their own perspective in this month’s Spotlight. I hope you read these testimonies about what God did in and through our group while serving in New Orleans and are as blessed by what these students and adults had to say as I was.
annual Cookie Outreach! Here is where you, your friends, and you church can get involved and help us to reach out to students as they move in later next month. Simply bake cookies, place 2-3 in each bag, and deliver them to us / Athens Church of Christ (785 West Union St) and we will hand them out to students as they arrive on campus and use them to invite other people to participate in faith community. It’s a super simple, but powerful way, to demonstrate to other people that they matter to us and Christ!
As always we want to thank you for your support of the ministry of ROC. Your prayers, support, and encouragement, allow us to experience and demonstrate the kingdom of God on campus and all around the world.
With Great Gratitude,
