Eager to serve the Lord wherever He leads, seven students from The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville headed to Portage, Wisconsin, July 21-29, on a missions trip led by BCF Missions Coordinator Lauren Parnell and BCF alum Rebekah Meahl.
Hosted by River of Life Church in Portage, the team assisted in their fair ministry, Vacation Bible School, painted, and helped with the state disaster relief efforts.
Throughout the day, the women on the team spent time at the Columbia County Fair painting faces, making balloon animals, and inviting people to come hear about the love of Christ at River of Life Church. The men on the team spent their days working with disaster relief cleaning up the surrounding areas that have experienced heavy floods.
"There is no doubt in my mind that our team was meant to be in Wisconsin," stated Parnell. "I saw all throughout the week how God placed each of our team members there for a specific purpose. He had divine appointments for all nine of us and I feel as though we represented and served our Savior to the very best of our abilities. God and His sovereignty never cease to amaze me!"
