God has been doing lots of things in the lives of His followers here too! Every Thursday from 7-10pm , one of our leaders opens up a section of the church and designates time for prayer and solitude alone with God. After a busy week of constantly being surrounded and pouring into others, it is so great to sit in the presence of God and just completely rest in Him. Last Thursday at prayer night we got the opportunity to pray for healing over one of the guys in our group...it was awesome! I've never prayed over someone like that before, and it was so cool to see the body of Christ fervently praying for a another member to be restored from spiritual burdens. Last night we went to our friend Alana's house to pray for three different young women who are leaving for long and short term missions trips in the next week. It was so exciting to participate in lifting up and sending out disciples who are eager to spread God's word all over the world. After lifting them up in prayer we worshiped God through song for the rest of the night. I can't explain how encouraging it is to be surrounded by so many people who are earnestly pursuing the Lord. I am so blessed to be surrounded by such a great community of Christians here. More to come soon!!
|Right before my first hike; Rabbit Lake Trail|
|We camped right beside this beautiful lake that reflected the mountains.|
|We went to Seward to celebrate the 4th of July and hiked up Exit Glacier. This is the view from 2.5 miles up..where there was snow on the ground and it was still warm!|
|It was just dark enough to light up the sky with fireworks at midnight before the 4th.|
|Last Friday we hiked up Little O'Malley. This is the view of the mountains on a beautifully clear day!|
