Shining a Light in our City
A group of our students just completed LightShine, an annual service project in which they partner with other ministries and organizations to serve our city. We are so grateful for the work that the students did in the name of God and the impact it had on those they served. We are also grateful for the impact LightShine had on the students themselves. We asked some students about this and here are their responses.
“I learned that even though some people only have bad thoughts about Memphis, these are so many good places here that are so welcoming, like Caritas.” -Avery Efaw
“Because of working at LightShine, I will look at people differently now.” -Clayton Sharp
“God is everywhere. We don’t bring God to the places we serve. We are just furthering His mission. He is already there.” -Melissa Jacobs
“At LightShine I was reminded how much I love mission work and how amazing it feels to help others.” -Avery Walker
Join us in praying that both the impact on those served and on our students will continue for many years to come to the glory of God.
