Day 3 started with a very intimate worship time when the Holy Spirit provided an opportunity for us to be vulnerable. As we sang the chorus “O come to the altar, the Father’s arms are open wide. Forgiveness is bought with the precious blood of Jesus Christ”, the Spirit began to move in our hearts and an awesome ministry time ensued. It truly is an awesome experience to watch young people respond to the tenderness and prompting of the Holy Spirit.
Once again we were privileged to have two awesome speakers. A husband and wife duo, Lisa and Lance Rediger. This couple have been involved in youth ministries for over 20 years in just as many if not more nations than you can count on both your hands and feet, and oh my do they have many stories to tell.
Lisa spoke on the area of believing Truth over lies. She brought validity to circumstances that perpetuate lies. The message she brought home was that even though the circumstances that surround our lives are real, that we do not allow them to determine our bad choices. It’s all about knowing who we are in God and walking that out. Lance spoke on the “S.T.R.A.W” of Obedience. Stand on what we know and believe to be Truth. We will be Tested in our obedience. Reward of obedience. Abide – Be still and not strive. Walk out your obedience. Even though Jesus spoke at the temple at the age of 12, he remained obedient to come under the authority of His parents until He was released into ministry at the age of 18.
In the afternoon Andrew joined the girls to work on the drama while Tayne and Quinn went with Grandad Tabe to spread gravel. After, the dance and work time the kids rested and then set up for a big SRFM – Wednesday Night Meating Potluck! Good Food, Good Company, Good Times!!!
