First Baptist Church from Coldwater, Michigan, spent time at Urban Hope Philadelphia July 8-12.
The group of 15 students and adults talked with people at Reading Market and Mifflin Park, did prayer walks, service projects, and came to Urban Hope’s Bible study at the church as well as their recovery meeting.
Comments from three participants:
Through the brokenness there is hope. Walking through the streets in unknown areas takes you out of your comfort zone, and God uses your obedience in ways you would never imagine.
I have learned how to live ON MISSION. And I truly think I have struggled telling people about Jesus. But this trip has taught me a better way.
Growing up, I thought I was so much better than everyone, even though I secretly struggled with the same things I was judging them for. Talking with complete strangers about their problems and mine has really opened my eyes to how much I need God’s grace.
