Juneau Update- Day 2

Hello, New Life Church. This is Grayson and I want to tell you about how our first full day in Alaska went, also mentioning some prayer requests along the way. Today started really well for all of us but we are still in recovery from the sports camp back home so prayer to have full nights of rest would be much appreciated. Anna Alcutt led us in a group devotion after breakfast about having a heart for the poor and broken, and for me that was really powerful because we were about to go canvassing in some pretty run down places.

My high of the day really was when the canvassing group I was in (Greg Elkins, T.J Elliot, and I) got a really positive response from the people going door to door, sure some people didn’t answer, but it was so encouraging when we had people just sign up on the spot and said they’ll see us there. Now, I wasn’t expecting that, but it was evident that God was working in this small town, opening the hearts and doors of the people.

Although things have been looking up on the trip so far there is one thing that is looming ahead of us for the coming days and that is the weather. It does help having nice weather when trying to teach kids sports. Please keep us in your prayers, that we stay strong what ever happens. Pray for God’s Will to be done.

I should go and get some sleep now, thanks for checking the blog, we’ll update again soon.

P.S. There is proof of the rainy weather below.

Tom and I will be praying for the sports camp and that God would hold back the rain and "flood" you with a bunch of kids! Praying for endurance and praying that you all would take Him at His word when He told us, "In your weakness I am strong!" Remember the song, "Jesus, Lamb of God"..."you are my strength when I am weak, you are the treasure that I seek, you are my all in all!"

Can't express my love for each of you enough; can't express my heart felt thanks to you all for going to Juneau with the Good News and loving on those kids! God bless you and keep you in His hands!!
