Hope you're having a great weekend! :)
The Strong in the Lord conference has finished! We are grateful for how smoothly everything is going and are encouraged by all the positive feedback. Reading the response forms is one of the favorite things to do afterwards, where we learn that hundreds of girls have made commitments to honor their parents, keep a clear conscience, minister to brothers and sisters, spend time in the Scriptures, and more.
Today is our day of "recuperation" before the Radiant Purity conference starts tomorrow. After being on the road for 10 days and running 3 conferences together during that time, it feels nice to sit back and take it easy. :) Looking forward to another great conference weekend! Please keep praying!
In my limited experience, junior high girls can be quite apathetic when it comes to the Gospel. They are, however, also receptive, and usually willing to talk. I am especially thankful that we have the law of God to use when witnessing to someone who is like this, because the law is our schoolmaster - it teaches us, reveals to us our sin, and brings us to Christ. Romans 7:7b says, "I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet."
