InterHigh – Gracepoint Youth Mission Trip

August 10, 2010 at 4:31 pm 1 comment

Our kids are very blessed to be a part of Element Youth Group at Gracepoint Berkeley Church and InterHigh Fellowship.  Kristen returned from their mission trip last week (to Costa Rica through Youth With A Mission – YWAM) and she couldn’t stop sharing with us about all that she experienced during their 9-day trip.

Among many things, the team got to experience sharing the Gospel with many people ranging from young toddlers, all the way to grandparents. They got to share the Gospel message in creative ways through skits, crafts, activities, messages, and of course, their personal testimonies that they carried.

What a contrast to how it was for me when I was a junior in high school.  Back then, if someone were to ask me about Jesus, I honestly wouldn’t know how to answer.  And I certainly had no vision for what God might do in (and through) my life.  But our youth members are able to experience firsthand the joys of serving the Lord at such a young age.  They are very blessed indeed…

I’m thankful for Pastor Will and Esther Kang for leading this youth team (along with the teachers who joined).  They took lots of pictures and videos which are available at:

I want to encourage them with our recent Daily Devotion text in 1 Timothy 4:12-13 in the words of Apostle Paul:

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.   Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching.

Keep on serving the Lord and growing in Him!
