"The week, the South Florida Team had the opportunity to bless Boca Raton and West Palm. Today we finished strong- scouring the Floridian shore line to rid it of debris. The community is passionate about its wildlife, and is protective of the sea turtles in particular. A clean beach allows the turtles to thrive, and a sense of accomplishment and unity will abound in Boca as a result. We later saw the fruit of our labor at the aquarium, where there were several turtles in the process of rehabilitation. SoFlo loves Boca!" --Camillle Randleman (1st Year)

"Today was a pretty awesome day. We started out our day by going to Helping Hands of Boca which is a soup kitchen. We served there until lunch time doing whatever they needed us to do. We grabbed a quick lunch which they served us and then went back to our host homes and get cleaned up. After cleaning up we went to an alumnis church and did a service there. It was a great time being able to connect with some great youth and being able to minister to them. After service they served us dinner and got to talk to there leadership and connect with them. It was an overall great day!:" - Christian Lovell (1st Year)

Wednesday, February 25th

Im finding so much joy serving. There's nothing like a bunch of family working together to build up the kingdom. Giving my heart each day knowing that God is filling areas of my life with him that I may show his love is so awesome and peaceful. God has been using this time to really open doors in my heart and life!

Today was a day full of serving Boca Raton, loving Jesus, and sharing his love with many. We started off the morning going to Florence Fuller, a school for under privileged kids, we cleaned for them, painted for them, and just blessed them and served them in any way we could! After that we went to Casa de Pao and it was delicious, I can get used to Brazilian food. After that we got to go pass out free water bottles on intersections and bless the city. There was Salvation, prayer, and just letting everyone know Jesus loves them. We got to end the night going to pray at a local collage campus. Today was a good day.

Hey everyone! It's been an amazing first couple days here in beautiful South Florida. Traveling was a breeze! We made it here safe and sound. We had the privilege to lead worship with Coastal Chapel. It was such an honor to have the chance to lead with them. It was about 76 degrees yesterday! Perfect weather for a chili cook-off with coastal chapel, and some ultimate frisbee and volleyball. By the end of the night we got the chance to pray with some guys who were playing some basketball. We blessed em' with some pizza and soda and covered them in prayer. We are so excited to see what else The Lord has in store for the rest of "love week" please keep praying for us and the people of South Florida! Love you guys!
