Day 2 has been a great day! The students and adults have been awesome! Traveling has been great and we thank God for traveling mercies as Bobby has been a great driver.
We left Camellia Baptist Church in Prattville, AL and headed to Memphis, TN. We arrived at Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid to do some site seeing. We got to ride in elevator to the top of the pyramid to look at the beautiful across the Mississippi River and downtown Memphis (pictures below). We only had about an hour at Bass Pro, so we didn't have much time to shop, things in there are expensive anyway. We left Bass Pro and arrived at the Union Mission.
After we set up our instruments and sound equipment, we helped serve about 150 men their meal. It was quite the set up and they had it down pat to get the meal in an orderly fashion. The students and adults did great! After serving, we had the opportunity to eat as well.
We started our presentation and from then on the Holy Spirit began to work. It was great! The students were singing their hearts out and the men were responding great. Bobby got up and spoke a few minutes and everything he said was exactly the right thing to say...we give God the glory!
Then as we sang our last song, Every Praise, the men were really getting into it then...and the students were as well. After we got done, they wanted us to sing that song again! And, so...we did! A lot of them were standing and singing along with us the second time! It was awesome! Some of my family was able to be there to watch and I was grateful for that!
It was a great way to start our trip! The students are doing great! They are working hard in not only helping load and unloading the bus, but really getting into the program.
Tomorrow, we help lead in the two morning services at my former church, Union Valley Baptist Church. And then we do our presentation in the evening, which will be Facebook live on Dawson Street Baptist Church's page.
What a way to start the trip! Please continue to pray because they are working!
That's all for now. Good night!
