What a time we had though... I knew even before we went what my post was going to be for today. God's word is always so clear to me in the darkest of places possible.
Sunday we went spelunking... crawling through an extremely uneven and jagged cave. We stopped in the middle where there was enough room for us all to sit down. And we shut out all of our flashlights - pitch black. There was no difference between keeping your eyes closed or open. You couldn't see the hand in front of your face. For many students this was an intense fear that they were facing. And they toughed it out.
One of the leaders carried in a guitar and we sang some worship right there in the darkness... What a picture of God's holiness. To penetrate the dark with such an intense light. Often when you work with students you learn more or are effected more by what is taught than the students are - I can only hope and pray the the students really took some time to listen to what God had to say to them.
He desires so much to fill the darkness with light. In their lives, in mine... and in yours.
