Cochrane Alliance Church - Feb 2018 | Hungry For Life

February 2018: ,

Only six months after the last team, Cochrane Alliance sent a group of seventeen to visit their friends in San Raymundo. While there, they helped families in the area and built community bus/taxi shelters on behalf of the Jesus Vienne Church in the town of San Raymundo. They also did some work on the school.

Team Testimonials:

"I'm reminded of how big God's church is and that we are all a part of it."
"Every time I go, I'm reminded of how God moves. He is always in control."
"I think this trip has made me more ready to put my trust in God after seeing all the ways he provided for me leading up to, and during, the trip."
"God spoke to me through other team members and made me realize that I am not alone."
"I have been changed in how I view my life, and how I'd like to spend my time and money."
"I have taken a major step in my spiritual life—because of this step, more options and doors have been opened to me."
"I am going to focus on being a positive influence on youth in my school and community."
"Seeing the need that some people have and not being able to provide a long-term solution instead of a temporary, fix broke my heart."
"While we served others with the love of God, my eyes were opened showing me that we are all God's creation and it's up to us to show everyone God's love and glory."
"This trip showed me that friends and family are much more important than material possessions."
"In the next six months I will spend more time building community."
"I have discovered the value of spending time with God above killing time with video games, etc."
"I have learned to step out of my comfort zone."
