It rained most of the way here but we made it! We’ve arrived and are about to unpack and get some dinner. We’ll update tonight with the week’s theme and funny bus stories!
We’ve had an amazing week. The theme this year was TORN. The first day, our theme was TORN from God; we talked about how we have all been torn from our Creator because of our sin. We all had the opportunity during worship to write out things that have separated us from God on torn piece of cloth. On Tuesday, our theme for the day was TORN apart, and the cloths from the previous day were across the stage for us to take and pray for. All the cloths were later strung together in a veil, representing the veil that separated us from God before Jesus. On Wednesday, our theme was TORN down, and the “veil” fell during worship, representing what Christ did for us on the cross. Today, our theme has been TORN by God. Our challenge tonight was to think about how our hearts have been torn by things that break His heart. All week-long, we have learned about Jacmel, Haiti and how we become involved. Our goal for the week was to raise $3,000 so that more people could have access to clean water. Tonight, they took an offering and the students raised $5,255.65! All that to say, it’s been an eventful week, and your students are coming home changed!
It’s getting intense!

As you can see, we all had rainy day fun.
Sorry I didn’t update last night, but yes we made it to KCU and started out the night with a great evening of worship. Today we are heading into our first full day at SITS. I will try (again) to put a video up at the end of the day from one of our students. Thanks for checking in!
We are on our way! The ladies’ van is rolling in style… as you can see with our duck-taped rearview mirror. Classy!
