“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
This was the first week of the Foundry Bible Immersion program. Each morning we get to have a devotional with one of the pastors from Immanuel. They have all been really good. We’ve talked about worship, we’ve also just looked at passages of scripture that we might be reading that day, and we’ll be going through the beatitudes with one of the pastors. Something that has stood out to me is when we were talking about worship. Its easy to just say words, or do actions, but really having your heart in the right place is what really matters. I’m really thankful to have this opportunity to spend so much time studying and learning from God’s word.
We read Genesis 1 through Leviticus 5 this week. It was been really fast paced, but really beneficial to read that much of God’s word at one time. It definitely helps you see the big picture of God redeeming his people. When we’re reading we look for a pearl and question in each chapter, and then we write them down. I find that helps me study and remember it more, when going at such a fast pace.
Each day we have some class time where we can look at some different topics. This week we were with Jordan talking about evangelism. The class time was really good and helpful. We also didn’t just talk about the gospel but we had opportunities to go to college campuses and evangelize. Doing that was such a good, humbling, and heart breaking experience. It was so exciting to be sharing the wonderful gospel message with others. It was a highlight of my week.
Four times a week the 5 of us get to go over to a family’s house for dinner. Those have been sweet times with good fellowship and yummy food. It’s been a blessing to be able to get to know families from the church.
We’ve also had some opportunities to do things with the college group at Immanuel. We went bowling, and then on Saturday we did a photo scavenger hunt around D.C. It was fun and nice to be able to see more of the historical things that are here.
I’m excited to see what the weeks ahead hold and look forward to studying and learning more about our great God. All glory be to Him!
