MFUGE '14- Thursday

Today was another great day for us here at MFUGE.  The theme for today was "Be Real."  The challenge from camp pastor Erik Reed tonight was for us to remove the masks that we wear and to be real with one another.  When we wear masks we rob ourselves of genuine community.  He stated that 2 things keep us from taking off our masks:  1) Gossip and 2) Lack of Grace.  He asked us to get with 2-3 people and share with one another the masks that we are struggling with and that need to be removed.  We spent some time in these small groups sharing and praying for one another.  Our group devotion time was sweet as we continued thinking about this theme.  Students shared their experiences from the day and even their burdens for people they are ministering to as well as other students in their groups.  I bragged to our students about who proud of them I am for their unity and their respect.  We had plenty of distractions tonight from those around us, but our students are reverent during worship which is a blessing.  It is also a blessing to see how unified our students are.  Unity allows us to further accomplish the will of God.  I also challenged the students during our group time not try to be someone that they are not.  I said that God created you to be the you that He created you to be.  In other words, stop trying to be someone else, but seek to be who God has called you to be.  Friday is our last day on site so please pray for boldness in us all.  Also please pray for strength and energy to finish this week well.
