We got back Saturday evening from our mission trip to Chicago....it was awesome! God used the people we came into contact with to challenge, love, and inspire us. I am really grateful. We did a lot of construction work while we were there, and we also had the chance to work at the Chicago Food Depository. They serve over 90,000 families a week, which is a huge number!
I personally was really challenged to take on the task of denying self and the things of the world, for the things of Christ. It can seem so hard sometimes, as we do live in the world, and are faced every day with the temptations of the world. However, there is abundant life in Christ (John 10:10), if we will just allow him to renew our hearts and minds, so that we can see clearly his will, which is so amazing (Romans 12:1-2)!
