Spring break is here and it is 30 something degrees outside. I thought the whole idea of Spring break was to get a break from winter. Anyways, I will have to make the best of this week. In spite of the freezing temperatures I am fired up about what God is going to do North of Kansas City in the community of Smithville in the Spring and Summer of 2011. Things are about to get hot!!
I want to first start off by thanking everyone who has worked so hard over the past few months at North Lake to get us where we are at today. We couldn’t have done it without you. God brought together people from all walks of life, and created a force to be reckoned with.

We had an awesome time at the Norhtlake Mission trip in Kansas City, however we experienced are share of trials on the way there. We had a battery go bad on us, a blown tire, and a few other issues that arose that really tested our spirits, however we were faithful, and some awesome things happened because of it. We were able to help with a community project to raise funds for public restrooms, and we also were able to work with a homeless ministry. Jeremy a student minister in training got to do a devotional reading and prayer for almost 100 homeless people. Awesome experience! We were also able to serve food for nearly 400-500 homeless people. This opportunity was really eye-opening for our students. We also hosted a youth rally in which the majority of the students responded to an altar call to start living with the faith of a mustard seed. This was an extraordinary sight in itself. We also had some fun while we were there. The students got to go tubing, and enjoy a day at Worlds of Fun. Who said being a Christian wasn’t awesome!! To God be the glory. Thanks to Bethel Baptist Church for your prayful and financial support. Check out this album for some of the photos of our trip: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2072342&id=1434591735
