PADS night

Dianne had the priviledge to be on the team who went to set up beds and make juice at the shelter. We made up 43 beds for a definite 37. It just boggles my mind that there would be that many in this area. Apparently, after this month those 37 people have to find the outdoor places to live until October when the shelter is reopened. I wish I would have thought of it then to pray for the people that would visit the shelter tonight. I'm gonna do it now.

Dear God,
I thank you that you are a God who cares about the people that have to live in a shelter tonight. I pray that you would reveal yourself to these people that you do care. Open their eyes to see you. I pray that you would bless their sleep tonight and bring people or resources in their lives to help get them to where you want them to be.

Tonight we talked about the book of leviticus. Yes I know for most of you this book in the bible could put you to sleep [emi lol] but we talked on some pretty interesting points. For those of you who haven't read it yet, read up on chapter 19 in leviticus. I read through some of it with my small group but we were kinda running short on time, however when you have the opportunity, read it through and check out all the laws that were set in order to keep the people from sinning.

Could you keep all the commandments?? I know I couldn't and I haven't, which is why offerings were in order. Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice, he was perfect and instead of having to use a scape goat to send off and that would come back "symbolizing our sins" with Jesus having given his own life for us, he washed our sins away completely!! what good news!!
