But this week was different. MOVE was actually at a church in Phoenix with local youth groups. Because of this, they were able to talk to parents within 24 hours and had ...drumroll... 23 kids get baptized during a main session! With several more getting baptized the weekend following MOVE. It was a great time to celebrate!
CIY looked different for us this year, but that in no way changed how God showed up and did his thing. We celebrated life change, and 23 students got baptized as a response to this incredible week at MOVE. Sometimes our expectations get shattered, but usually that’s just God showing us that He has other plans far greater than our own. 23 students said "yes" to Jesus, and no matter what our expectations were for that week, and no matter what journey these students were on, God showed me and all of us that he is for all, forever.
