One of my favorite days of the year was yesterday and today…the days all the students come home! As much as God’s at work through us and Emmaus sending people OUT…I love when they come in, too.
Everyone is so grateful to be back together, most of whom were in full-time ministry all summer, and most of them, with very little support or help or family. To be together again with their mentors and brothers and sisters and prayer partners and accountability partners and friends is a joy obvious to anyone. As with every August, most are a little worse for the wear, this battle we’re all a part of not easy. Everyone’s a belt notch smaller (and most were on the smallest notch to start with) and everyone’s got stories of struggles and triumphs from the past 2 months.
