One of the teenagers stood up and asked, “Why are you crying? My own mother doesn’t cry for me. My own family doesn’t cry for me. Why would you cry for me?”
Hi I’m Devyn… Pratt 🙂
Hey Friends and Fam, miss y’all so much. As many of you know, this is my first mission trip. Considering I had no expectations, this has been incredibly life changing. The culture is insanely different and the way God’s showing me His Love and the way His Heart pounds for every single soul across this earth is very inspirational.
These people prove that materialistic desires aren’t the cause for true and consistent joy. It’s so awesome to hear testimony after testimony, smile after smile about why life is worth living. “Jezi” is moving and it’s such a blessing to be a part of a movement that’s headed toward Eternal Glory in His Kingdom.
The way that God begins to change hearts and bring true understanding and seriousness in our daily small groups with the teens has had a real effect on these brothers and sisters in Christ. I know these seeds of encouragement and maturation toward obedience and righteousness will pour into many other souls with God’s Living Water. God’s Fire is burning bright and these people are feeling it. The prayers are definitely bringing fruit. Please keep them coming.
These kids have my heart. It really does break for them. They are so beautiful. It’s so hard to interact and feel God’s compassion flowing to them like they may have never felt before and then leave thirty minutes later. I know they recognize Christ’s Love through this but I really feel encouraged toward long-term missions with constant relationships and more intentionality. Mom and Dad, I know you love to hear that! 😉 no, but it’s really been awesome. Such great opportunity and I feel direction more toward who God is changing me to be.
Thanks to all who supported and prayed and continue to do so. This has changed my life drastically. His plans are good. He is so awesome and I love you all 🙂
