On Friday night, Melanie's family + closest friends gathered at the bungalow for the execution of a month-long plot to surprise her before she sets off for another summer at camp. We all rejoiced when we saw her face light up + her smile be bigger than most had ever seen before as we all shouted "SURPRISE!" It was a glorious evening of food + fellowship + making happy memories, all in honor of our precious Melanie. We prayed over her + loved on her + laughed all night all the while being protected from the rain that the weatherman assured us would come. We were all blessed, mostly because we have a lady in our lives as wonderful as her.
It's my prayer that her excitement only grows as she sets out to be the hands + feet of Jesus Christ this summer at Asbury Hills. Would you join me in praying for her, too?
"Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among the people."
