The sun shone off the beautiful steel curves of the St. Louis Arch this afternoon. We saw our first glimpse of the iconic structure around 3:15pm. We pulled into "Slu" (St. Louis University) moments later.
After checking in, we unloaded the trailer and handed out room assignments.
After a yummy dinner of Mac n cheese, and chicken or cheeseburgers, we packed back into the vans. We drove a short 10 min drive to a nearby church, where we will have all of our large group sessions.
We had an awesome time of worship and teaching alongside the 300-400 students here for the mission trip this week.
We got introduced to our theme focus for the week: PRAYER. After session we drove back to SLU and broke into our small groups. We talked about how prayer is a very important weapon we can use in our battle against satan.
Though hesitant, I think we are excited to have the week to work on and discuss the power of prayer as kingdom work.
