Over my spring break I attended an event called Beach Reach in Panama City Beach, Florida. Over the week, we gave free van rides and pancakes to spring breakers, all while sharing the gospel and the amazing love of God through these acts of love. Sounds super fun right? Florida, the beach, Jesus, what more could you ask for? But, to be completely honest I was nervous and hesitate about going.
After, praying and God providing the funds for me to attend I was on my way to Florida for spring break. Over the course of the week I was able to get even closer to some of the people of The Gathering, meet other awesome believers my age, worship together, read scripture together, learn together, and share the love of God in evangelism every evening together!
Boy did God show up! 65 spring breakers gave their lives to Christ! God was able to work so powerfully in and through the lives of my friends and the new spring breaker friends I had met. Breach Reach Spring Break 2016 is a week I will never forget. I am so blessed to be given opportunities to share the love of Jesus through this ministry! I cannot wait to continue to share that love on campus!
