|Ferry to CDO!|
Today the A-team went to the mall in between the afternoon and evening gospel preaching. While there Tyler (CA) and Chris Thompson (PA) saw a huge group of educators all gathered for a special event at the mall expo area. They approached the DJ and asked if they could have a few minutes to address the crowd about knowing Jesus and knowing peace in their lives. The DJ sent them to someone who sent them to someone else. Eventually, they ended up getting permission and Tyler opened the whole program by preaching the Gospel!
After he preached, the DJ played the music from the
. They found out afterwards that the event manager's wife is somehow connected with SMCI!
Then, when we got to dinner, the Musgraves told us that every school they went to today except one had an absentee principal. We think they were all at the educators event at ICM (Island City Mall!)
They took initiative on their own! Pm wasn't even there! How exciting!

1. Speaking slowly for clear understanding, especially to first year high school students, while staying in the 20 minute time limit.
2. That we would remain humble, and walk into each classroom relying in the Holy Spirit to work through us.
3. Health for those who become car sick – travel time each day is roughly 6 hours – roads are not always favourable.
4. Teachable spirit when receiving ways to improve presentations.

"What a blessing and encouragement it is for THIS current summer’s E-Campaign to see the fruit from LAST summer’s E-Campaign!
On our decision response slips, there was this question: “Have you received Christ?... If yes, when?” In a few schools in particular, the answer was “last summer” or “summer 2011” or “July 2011.” And I found out later SMCI was at that school LAST summer preaching the gospel.
When the gospel is preached clearly and in the power of the Holy Spirit, God gives fruit that remains. I praise the Lord for the assurance He gives a year later (and longer) after someone genuinely receives Christ."
Hard to beat this! We had some extra time today so we went to the city park and watched some guys play basketball. Andrew jumped over to some of the spectators and preached Christ to them. Seeing the whole group in prayer was very neat.
