Tomorrow we have a leadership retreat from 8 in the morning until 10 at night. I'm excited because I did not go to the last leadership retreat a year ago- I was doing childcare. But this year I get to go and and I'm expecting to learn a lot and for God to move on us! In 2 weeks we are having our youth group Encounter. We call them encounters because our retreats aren't just classes that you take in a place outside of the city- they really are encounters with God. Last night I preached in the youth group here in San Pedro Sula. It was an incredible service- both for me and for them! I felt so sure of the message that I was preaching that I wasn't nervous at all. It's the first time that has happened to me. But I knew that the word that I was speaking was a message that God had given me for them so I could flow and not be nervous if I was doing right. Just 1 week ago when the pastor prayed for me he said that I could do all things I was called to do because the Holy Spirit is real and alive in me. And if God is in me, what can't I do?!
