Together for the GospelJune 12th, 2013
For the first few days of summer tour, all four HeartSong teams stayed on Cedarville’s campus. We did have time with our individual teams to rehearse and prepare for our own separate summer adventures; but much of the week was spent as one united team. We shared meals together, cleaned equipment together, listened to devotionals from our directors together, and we even played sand volleyball and ultimate frisbee together.
On the road, people are often surprised to find that there is more than one HeartSong team. We explain that there are actually four similar teams, each with a unique summer itinerary. Since we are apart for the entire summer, it’s easy for us to forget that we have friends on the road that are ministering in the same way we are. This past week was a great reminder that each team is part of a larger ministry. We each have our own style and opportunities, but we are working together to accomplish our mission of ministering to all those we meet on the road.
As each team pulled away from campus, we prayed for one another and for our summer travels. It is a great encouragement to know that we are not alone in our efforts and we have friends praying for us as we work. We are excited for the broad scope of impact that the teams will have as each goes it’s own different way; but at the same time, we are extremely excited for the reuniting of the teams at the end of the summer so we can find out the ways God has worked in and through our distinct, yet united efforts to share the Gospel.
