Two down and one to go! What a glorious time to be in youth ministry at Johns Creek. I've just completed back to back weeklong trips with our Senior High to Montreat and then with our Mid High to the Great Escape, and now today is our first full day on our Senior High Jamaica mission trip here in central Jamaica in the town of Mandeville. We are ready to serve and love and be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. I look forward to preaching about the experience next Sunday on July 5th.
Meantime, here is a video from last week's Great Escape (compliments of Mason Lord) with some of the most rambunctious and loveable middle schoolers anywhere. As one of our young people said during our last family time together, "Before this trip, I didn't want to come, but my mom made me come. Now that I am here, I don't want to leave. I love being here, the worship, the message, the people."
I couldn't have summed it up any better.

Prayer for Today
O God, thank you for opportunities to get away from the routines of life to come together in Christian community to explore what it means to love and be loved by you and one another. May each of these trips this summer change lives! Amen.
