To be honest, at first, Anna and I were pretty upset that our group consisted of three high school girls and two serving ones. But later in the week we got to know each other and were really able to grow with them in the Lord. And now that it's over and I'm looking back on it I'm really glad that God put me with the group that he did.
My goal for the week was to have a good gospel conversation. When I made that goal I wasn't entirely sure what it meant but I feel like I've accomplished it. I met one girl who seemed distant at first and said no when I asked if she wanted to ask Jesus for forgiveness, but when i began explaining that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God she had this expression that looked kind of like this O.O and I knew I'd struck something. I asked her again if she'd want to ask Jesus for forgiveness and she said yes. Although the conversation only lasted about 5 minutes and I didn't even get the chance to pray with her, I think I planted a seed and I trust that God will move in her heart and finish what I started.
