photo After each community, we spend time as a team reflecting on the things that God taught us, and how we saw Him working throughout the week. Yesterday, while debriefing as a team, we asked the interns to summarize their time in one of the communities we work in with one tweet (or 140 characters).

Reading through the short excerpts from Journey was a sweet reminder for me that God has each of us on an individual journey. He has orchestrated and ordained specific conversations and encounters for each of us. I am in awe of how faithful He is to reveal himself to each of us in such specific ways. I am overjoyed with the journey He has our team on this summer.
