Summer reflections of Hope18

At last week's Annual Thanksgiving Service, we featured a video of our young people simply talking about their experience of Hope18. Our young people are great but they can be random so no surprises that the video included humour and laughter; a lot of chatter; touching moments; and a 'name the duck' ceremony. It was wonderful to see just how much these guys loved serving God together through doing some pretty hard work. Did they really enjoy supervising the rubbish tip?

If I had to name the one moment that impacted me the most, it was this - God genuinely spoke to them. That should be a challenge to us! If God can speak to young people, then surely he can speak to me? Nice one Ebe Youth! Showing us the way again.
