Yesterday was the "commissioning" service. Peter Grant preached on the 2 crowns in the Bible, the one a king receives, and the one a victor receives, like the ones they are using in the Olympics this year! What a great illustration of the crowns we receive from the Lord! Next we gathered in a circle and had communion, then every team came up and was prayed for inside the circle. Then each team leader was given a "crown":
Quite a night!
Please pray today as we travel to our island to begin our ten days of outreach!
We hope to have internet access at our hostel, so pray we can update the site! Sorry for the famine of posts yesterday. Blogger wasn't co-operating with us.
