When I'm playing on the piano at the accommodation center.
During the Ocean View service when I was crying during my sermon and I looked out and everyone was crying too. It made me realize how one person's story can change someone else’s.
In the human connections. We are so alike in many ways.
Brought home we really are brothers and sisters of God, and God has given us a precious gift and the ability to make meaningful relationships.
When the little kids were singing; knowing what some of their lives will be like, made me wonder what's ahead of them.
In the presence of joyful (soccer) players, shouting , laughing, running and sitting listening when appropriate and important.
At the home visits, Johnny would tell the family that we were visiting that we were not there to judge, but rather to pray with them and to help them carry their burdens.
When I finally found the little boy I had spent time with two years ago!
When speaking to the children's teacher. She is filled with love, hope and faith for her 50 students!
When talking with a boy named Luke. He talked about his faith and truly believes.
On a home visit with a family who was at church on Sunday. The lady said that she could relate to my talk because she has been through a similar situation. It helped me really feel like I was not alone.
At the Ocean View service! People are so alive, grateful, joyful! It helped me feel God's presence in the way that He works for those who believe.
In the welcoming arms of Ocean View!
I saw faith this week in the Ubuntu boys. They are the most gracious boys I've ever met, despite how difficult their current life may be and their backgrounds. It showed me that you can never use any difficulty you are facing in life as a reason not to show grace.
In the people of Ocean View coming together of our community through faith and in the quiet times of listening.
