Looking forward to coming back home today. The Los Angeles trip was successful in a lot of ways. A lot if people gave their heart to Jesus, well over a dozen. The two Canvas Lives we did were a hit; some of the best I’ve ever had the privilege of hosting. Our team really came together well in the end. There was some rough spots along the way, but maturity and love won out and I think everyone really grew.
Tracy said the trip would really mark me and it has. Too much to explain, but I was personally touched in many ways. I led a guy named Charles to Jesus on the last night of the trip. That was really neat. I didn’t get a lot of time to minister to people so my conversation with Charles was very special. He was invited to church at Storyteller on Saturday when we did our Canvas Live.
I’m so glad we did this trip. It was hard. I almost nixed the whole thing in March because no one was interested in going, but I’m so glad those 14 YPs responded to the call and sacrificed their time, energy, and money to advance the gospel.
Five guys (including myself) decided to stay for three extra days and have MANCATION (vacation for men). It was fantastic hanging out with the guys for those extra days. We really got to know each other and connected so well.
I can’t wait to see Goo Gee Bear and momma. Ten days is a long time to be away from them. Things change when you have a family.
I’m Harold Dorrell Briscoe. Thanks for reading.
