SEND LA logoFirst of all I would like to again thank everyone for your continued prayer and support! It’s hard to believe I only have 2 weeks left in this city! This past week we’ve been really pushing to be intentional with the relationships that we’ve made here and share God’s love with them.

The people here are opening up and being more receptive and interested in what we have to say and why we are here. The team is really getting into a “rhythm” in the city and through that we can continue build relationships. On Wednesday we all went to the beach down in Santa Monica for our much needed off day. We all got a little sunburned, but overall was a fun and relaxing day!

scriptureYesterday we were able to meet with a church planter and pick his brain about his successes and failures in church planting here in Los Angeles. We also got to meet representatives from the Golden Gate seminary and hear the programs that were offered as well as opportunities that go along with going to school there. It was overall a great week as we continued working and constructing the relationships while showing Christ’s love to the people of the community.

Please keep praying for us here that we would not grow weary but run with endurance the race that is set before us (Heb. 12:1). There’s only a couple weeks left and we really need to push ourselves out of our comfort zones even more and be even more intentional with people as our time here comes to a close.
