It's just before 11:00 and all the students are headed to their rooms. We had a great first night of worship. The Akins lead and did a wonderful job as always! Adrian followed up with a message on 2 Corinthians 11 and 12 regarding Passion and Suffering. He made a statement that I am still thinking on, "Passion makes suffering look like excitement" and followed it up by 2 Cor 12:10 and Acts 5:40-42 (encourage you to go read all the scriptures:). He encouraged us to rejoice in our suffering for the Lord and if we have a Passion for Him we will suffer but that we can use that for His glory as Paul and others did. Very challenging message.
Tomorrow it's off to skiing, shopping, ice skating, snow tubing, and the like!!! Please pray for us that we will enjoy the fellowship together while here and that all students/ chaperones will know Christ before they leave and those that know Him, God will speak to them.
