Spring Mission 2010 thoughts...

One of my most enjoyable experiences during this trip was playing basketball, talking, and tutoring with the children from the neighborhood. I worked with one young boy who needed to study for a history exam. He automatically became open to my help as he worked diligently on his homework. All of the children appeared to accept our team with arms wide open.

Their smiles, hugs, and excited attitudes confirmed why the Lord called me to Opelousas. As I watched the children interact with each other, I realized that the Lord desires us to love everyone, but especially children whose hearts are open to His love and truth. My life will never be the same as I consider what the gospel represents to my life and to those around me.
