Are you read for the next STEP?

Wishing all our fathers a happy father day. We love you and are grateful for all you do for us.

This past week STEP Advanced moved into the woods for a while and learned about purifying water, building shelters, and survival on the mission field. The week ended with classes on hospitality and public speaking.

STEP Advanced had the privilege of serving in Bastrop, Texas during the beginning of the week. They assisted residents with clean up from some recent flooding, including clearing out sheds, pulling up flooring, moving furniture, and cleaning debris out of yards.

It was a blessing to both the residents and the STEP Advaned ladies. One lady, they assisted, told them that on Sunday night she was feeling God had deserted her. Ten minutes later she receives a call about STEP Advanced helping her out. When they were leaving she said she knew God was with her.

Sharing Christ light is why we go and the STEP Advanced ladies did just that. They were a blessing and encouragement to everyone they worked with.
