i have a small (or maybe it will end up being big!) goal of pulling out my camera a lot more when i'm with my heart change/brookside/biblestudy community this spring & summer. this area of my life is so poorly documented… and on one side i don't mind because i get to spend so much time with them that i don't notice it. but i realized that i'll definitely want to have pictures of them all once i've moved so i want to be better about snapping images here and there!
here's a few quick snapshots of our used-to-be-little biblestudy! tuesday nights are my favorite night of the week because i get to see all of these dear faces! we've had a consistent 20-25 girls recently so as you can see, lately we've been shoulder to shoulder all the way around m+k's living room and then 4-5 girls sit in the middle. so thankful mandy & cassie joined our leadership team last fall because i don't know what we would do with out them!
please keep praying for us as having this many girls obviously presents a lot of dynamics & challenges to work through. both on tuesday nights and in our relationships with them outside of biblestudy.
it is such a gift to love on these girls though and it humbles us that they keep coming back. definitely all the Lord's doing! as with any group of individuals, there is a lot of hurt & brokenness represented here so please pray that God's grace, redemption & healing continues to wash over their lives… little by little breaking down the walls & hardness.
when i think about moving away in a few months, these girls come to mind immediately and my heart breaks a little more at the thought of leaving them. but i know the Lord is leading me where i need to be next and i know the girls will continue to thrive under the love & care of m, k, c & m:) so thankful he can be everywhere at once!
