So, the week after returning from our rafting trip, we had a missions and ministry focus week. During that week, we learned about ministry, the how to, the heart of the missionary, and stories of different missionaries. We had at least a dozen different missionary/ministry speakers during the week, telling us about their area of ministry and preparation for ministry.
At the end of the week Discover had a practicum. We ran the entire Christian and Missionary Alliance Church of Plains-- Sunday School, worship, sermon, Children's Church, coffee time, etc. It was an adventure! A good kind, of course. I did the A/V and worked with the group on the Jr. Sr. High school Breakfast Club. It was a lot of fun!
The whole week was really neat. I met a lot of missionaries with different organizations as well as friends of friends. I could give you a lot more information on the week, but suffice it to say that we had fun, listened to tons of speakers, and ran a church for one Sunday.
