Pittsburgh Day 3: Canvassing and Prayer

Day three of our Pittsburgh mission trip started off with our team out canvassing local neighborhoods for our community outreach this Saturday. Several students also spent time in preparation for our various community outreach programs that will take place today and tomorrow. After a quick lunch our team headed into downtown Pittsburgh to check out the city and spend time in prayer for the people, the city and the church. Our team arrived back at West Hills and had dinner with the Living Faith Community Church family where we had the opportunity to get to know our brothers and sisters here in Pittsburgh and continue building those relationships. Our students were challenged last night to be in focused prayer about what God is showing them through this mission trip and how their lives will be altered upon their return to Charlotte as a result of what they have seen here.

God has opened up a great opportunity for our team today that was not originally on our itinerary. This afternoon we will host a carnival and Easter egg hunt in an inner city neighborhood in north Pittsburgh. The housing project we will be working in has not had much of an investment by many churches and we are trusting that God will be glorified as we reach into this community with the Gospel. Be in prayer for our team as well as the people that we are going to minister to. Pray that God would speak clearly to the hearts of the people through the mouths of our students and that he would change lives for eternity through our ministry there.
