CCY choir ministry trip

Yesterday we had the opportunity to go to a nursing home with our church's teen choir. Even though the bus ride over was chaotic (I'm starting to wonder if it's humanly possible for those kids to be quiet), once we got there, it was really nice. We sang a few praise songs, then I played "His Eye is on the Sparrow", one of my favorite hymns. A girl gave a testimony, then we had some more songs, another testimony, an ensemble which sang "And Can it Be", another of my favorites. Then we all listened to the very energetic message delivered by one of our youth helpers. I think the elderly people may have been a little worn out after he finished, but it was a good message. Then the teens went out and visited with the residents. Geoff and I met this one lady whose husband was a pastor who had felt called to buy a boat and travel around to all these different ports to preach. It was really a fun time, and though we had to miss something we would probably rather have done, it turned out to be for the best! Psalm 55:14 describes it pretty well: "We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company."
