Mike Polley shared during Theme Training on discipleship, encouraging disciples to keep the chain going. The definition of discipleship is one's intentional living and sharing into another person's life to push them towards Christ. Mike Polley talked about his personal experience as a disciple and a mentor observing that the relationship is not one of tutor and student, but something closer to father and son.

During Bible Study Training, Jack Thompson shared that studying the Bible is worship, and that it is a process that takes time and discipline. Disciples also got a chance to walk through 1Peter 3:1-2 together.
As of this week, everyone on project is employed. With the staff leaving among other things, this week is proving to be busy in many ways, yet disciples had the opportunity to spend a quiet morning together in prayer. This morning, many of the disciples chose to meet on the beach and pray for the staff and the project. Josh Schrock's team led Theme Training last night. Their movie, "Summer of the Infants" will be uploaded on the site soon as well as Mike Chamber's testimony of how God saved his life. Matt Reagan shared about "Heaven: Homecoming for an Exile" where he explained why Christians could look forward to death and the implications of their eternal home.

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting our blog once again. Yesterday, as usual, students had the morning off while others had the privilege to work. Many of them took the advantage to rest and read. They also had the opportunity to spend some time meditating on the powerful talk Matt Reagan gave on Tuesday. We would encourage you to download it as well.
Later everyone got ready for evangelism training where Colby Williamson shared with us on “Why Share the Gospel.” Students were truly encouraged and challenged to realize that we do not share the Gospel as a kind of duty, or a certain type of debt that we owe to God. Rather, we evangelize in the light of valuing God. We share the Gospel because it is the most valuable message that a person can give and experience.
As for tonight, project is having social time where students are going to be able to experience a truly southern treat.
Matt Reagan shared with us on Monday night about the gospel of grace. The gospel is a celebration, but we are unwilling to celebrate (Isaiah 30:15) because of our deceitful hearts. We want to work for our salvation, but Jesus says in John 6:29 "this is the work of God, that you believe in the One He has sent" [display_podcast]

Today is a work day for many of the students. However, everyone is excited for tonight's Theme Night. Matt Reagan is going to be sharing about “Grace: An Exile's Gospel.” Pray that God continues his work and that He might open our eyes to see the beauty of the Gospel.In other areas, last night we were hit by a storm that kept some students awake for a few hours into the night. “It was like a gentle hurricane” said Martha Joy, one of the Team Leaders. The sound of thunder was so loud that it made people jump from their beds. It was a terrifying but glorious experience at the same time. Yesterday during our project meal, students gathered in small groups and prayed for each other's families. It was a wonderful time to share about the good and bad news in our lives.

Our first theme talk from Andrew Knight was last Thursday night. He talked about we are separated from relationship with God because of our sin. Jesus who died for our sins is our substitute, so that we are called righteous by God. This is not based on anything that we do (our works), but solely on the work of Jesus Christ. You can listen to the talk here. We will be podcasting more talks from beach project as the summer goes on. Expect more in the coming weeks. [display_podcast]
