Lord, make them hungry for your word

Todays message was really good & last nights was, to put it mildly "in-tense!" The pastor is from a little well know town called Cedar Point.. Sound familiar? My precious husband thinks its the "most awesomest " ( I know, not a word) place on earth because Cedar point has claimed the title of having the theme park w/ the best, most terrifying fastest coasters on the planet, & my husband is their biggest fan! (personally I think 6 flags Arlington rocks!) The message was on salvation, & was really straight foreward about hell & what it really looks like to "pick up your mat". The reaction was stark. There were vast revelations & kids realizing that God isn't like burger king, we can't have it our way. You could sence that it wasn't a message that any of them were to comfortable w/. (not often taught in our western culture) Then an alter call - and one that was hugely different than any I'd ever seen, in that he didn't say a prayer over all that stayed. He asked that no youth leaders pray w/ them. He wanted them to work it out w/ God mano e mano, after which 2 of our girls gave their lives to Christ!!! (I would call that a success & we arnt half done yet, Go God!!) Today the lesson in our book we are teaching on is based on Mat 15:16.-teaching to fish verses feeding.They are working on it now- I'm really encouraged about how they are applying themselves. I must go discuss & challenge butplease keep praying, changes are a foot here @ the foot of the rockies !! In Him, LA
