It has been a while

Okay I know that it has been forever since I wrote but I had some time, finally, and wanted to reflect on my time here in Ocean City.  These past two or three weeks have been extremely  amazing.  I have just been learning so much and the Lord is really working through my life.  Well first off let me say that since the last time that I wrote something my family came out to visit, which was awesome and such a blessing.  It was great for them to see a tangible aspect of what I'm doing here and it was great for me in the sense of just getting to see them and spend quality time together.  But besides that being awesome the Lord has really been working in countless ways in my faith.  
One way I have really seen the Lord move out here over the past little bit is to really give us as students a vision and really step up in different leadership roles on project.  The staff team left last week so this past week has totally 100% been on us and we have really experienced fruit from that.  It is just so encouraging to see where people lead and their hearts show up through that.  I have been blessed to lead in numerous ways that will in turn challenge me and push me closer to the lord.  One way is I am on prayer and vision team and my heart for prayer is completely changing, and I love it. Also this past week I had a chance to be the project Emcee, and that was totally awesome.  Just seeing people encourage me and being encouraged by me was such a blessing.  The lord is totally transforming my life!
Last night we had our first big outreach as a student project, it was a battle Good vs. Evil.  Through that we were able to communicate the gospel and then reach out to countless people that watched the epic battle.  That was really cool just to see the lord use us in a sweet way to communicate the gospel in different light.  And it was just really fun to do.

Yeah I feel like I could talk for hours upon hours about how the Lord has been breaking me down and then building me back up and totally transforming my life.  I have been growing like crazy here and have loved every second of it.  I just hope and pray that I would fully experience these next few weeks on project to the fullest.  Just reflecting upon these simple truths it really again shows me how awesome it has been to be here on project.
