1 Timothy 4:11-16

Isaiah 6:8

This weekend’s reading: Matthew 27:46, Mark 15:34

(Written by a volunteer on the 2016 Sonshine Choir Tour.)

This was the first time I had helped chaperone a choir tour. I was pleasantly surprised to learn on the tour that students wrote daily devotionals for us to read and reflect on while traveling by bus to the places where they would sing and minister. I was blown away by the depth, honesty, and eloquence of those devotionals, which really did inspire me and opened my eyes to God’s work in so many aspects of choir tour, even the bus rides! We have some amazing youth in BUMC, and we would be wise and blessed to hear more from them in more “intergenerational” settings!

Today’s Field Guide comes from our Share the Spirit devotional guide. These testimonials are written by students, staff, and volunteers who have participated in one of our youth mission trips or choir tours in the past. They are sharing their experiences and the lessons they learned from God and from each other. We hope the words they share help you grow in your faith. We also hope these words challenge you to grow deeper in your faith by participating in one of these missional opportunities or giving generously so that others can. Sign up to attend Share the Spirit on March 10.
