FAMILY PLUS High School - August 25

Last night we completed the third week of our study on service called, "If Necessary, Use Words." I shared with your students the importance of relating with people who we are called to serve, and suggested that our grasp of their need must go far beyond a week or so of our time with them. We've experienced this very thing in our work in New Orleans - those guys and ladies down there have become our friends...we feel very close to them and share, quite intimately, the struggles they face.

This coming Sunday we will be wrapping up the fourth week of that study by discussing the ultimate point of serving others is to point them to Christ. We don't do it because it makes us feel good or even because it's the right thing to do. Rather, we do it because it reflects the message of true hope that can only be found in Christ Jesus. We'll be looking at 1 Corinthians 9:19-23 as our text. I will be hanging out with students in the District until around 9:30 or so before heading down to teach our Family Plus Parent Class in Room 127.

I shared a video with your students last night that I will leave you with this week. It's a comical glance at how mission trips can take a side turn based on the actions of the missionaries....hope you enjoy it. Let me know if there is anything I can pray about for you or your family.
