N. Ireland Spring Break 3: Update 4
Posted: Thursday, April 12, 2018
Today (Wednesday) was another incredible day with the RIOT team. At the end of each day, you kind of think you’ve hit a peak but then the Lord just continues to work in even more powerful and profound ways. We started the day picking up “rubbish” in the streets of Dundrum. The picture shows the team with the bags and bags of trash that we were able to clean up in service to the people of this lovely town. We also got to spend some down time at a beautiful lighthouse on the coast of the Irish Sea.
As with every day so far, the highlight of the day came when we got to spend time with the students at RIOT in the evening. Three students stood up and bravely shared their incredible testimonies, and two other students used their musical talents to lead us in some live worship. Through this time, the team is continuing to learn about and be transformed by the power of prayer. In a moment of amazing vulnerability, a small group of both Northern Irish and American students asked for prayer. The time of prayer that we had for those individuals was so Spirit-filled and God ordained, and it had a great impact on everyone in the room.
We also had a chance tonight to encourage one another with words of affirmation, challenge, and prayer within our group. The team is continually coming closer together, and we can’t wait to see what the next three days and beyond have in store for this amazing group. Thank you for your continued prayers!
