Wednesday night consisted of two things. Movie night and broom hockey. Yes, movies are against our Joshua covenant. The staff decided to let us watch a film titled Denial. We all got cozy and cuddled up on the couches in the great room and watched the movie. It was a sweet time and moving film. Shortly after the movie, we moved over to broom hockey.

On the Topic of Purity

This past week has mostly just been re-adjusting back into the life of Joshua.

On Monday we had our regular sabbath, and then Bob’s class in which he talked about public speaking, a new unit we are going

God is Good!

Hey guys, it’s Kenzie! Today was our last day in LA. We started off by heading to IHOP. It was a great meal: pancakes, eggs, bacon/sausage, hash browns, and of course coffee. After this we went to the Museum of Tolerance. For some of us, this was the first time, but others we’ve been there before. This was the second time I’ve been there, but something happened that was a surprise to us all. We

Loving Others

Today was super fun! We went to the LA Food Bank in the morning and got to be a small part of the food distribution process there. Our whole class was able to be part of sorting through and labeling food from a big conveyer belt and then placing it on pallets to go out to mission organizations like the Dream Center. After that we had the sweet opportunity to drive down to Santa Monica

The Dream Center

This morning we left the church around 8am. We drove to the DreamCenter which is near Echo Park. The lady who works at the DreamCenter told us about how the ministry was first started and how they started small and began working in people. Their ministry grew and grew because they trusted in God. We started to fill the truck with food and it went quickly because we have learned to work as a team.

Made it to LA!

Today our class made it to Los Angeles! We left at 7:30 am and made it at 2:30. Once we made it to MacArthur park, our LA leader, Jeff, gave us some tips for walking around. We then passed out applesauce and water bottles to homeless people for 2 hours. It was a good experience talking to complete strangers and being stretched of our comfort zones. Some of us were even able to share the
