In our personal prayer we’d be wise to remember that God doesn’t grade us on diction. Words matter little if our intention is pure. Likewise, when leading prayer with our teens or Core it’s vital to remember that less is often more. Simplicity is a direct route to sanctity.
Some of you may’ve read in a recent blog that Life Teen Missionary Eric Martin and Life Teen Board Member Stephen Smith traveled to Haiti to help with relief effort following the earthquake. I spent time with both Eric and Stephen (my dad) this past weekend at the Life Teen staff retreat at Covecrest. It was very moving to hear stories from their journey to Haiti. I wanted to share some photos from their trip.
Tomorrow two of Life Teen’s finest will travel to Port-au-Prince to serve the people of Haiti: Stephen Smith and Eric Martin. Let me introduce you all to these gentlemen and share why they’re going.
In the past few days, we have all been affected by the images and stories coming from Haiti. Undoubtedly, your teens have also been affected. Some ask why. Some are filled with compassion. Some are angry with a God who would let this happen. All wonder what they can do to help.
