Being the Light

It was a blessing to be a part of 2012's AMAZING Team. If it weren't for all of the team members working together within our spiritual gifts, we would not have been able to reach so many kids and even adults in India and Laos.
What the Lord has shown me through this trip was the hunger for "Light" all over Asia. I was able to see kids and families seeking something greater than the materialistic things of this world. There was young boys who didn't have much food or even clothing. There were teachers at the Woodstock school, seeking to know more about Christ, because of the light that we the Hawaii Team were able to bring through Jesus Christ.

Take-away!

During our trip to India, everything we did was so intentional. It was awesome to be a part of something that had so much purpose and intention behind it. Everything we did had a reason behind it. For example, at the high school retreat we were either trying to tell the students about Jesus or if they already had a relationship with Him, then to encourage them in their faith. This really prompted me to look at and evaluate my everyday life at home and ask myself why I don't have that same intention with everyone. It helped put things in perspective and give me more of a kingdom and eternal mindset!
