Today was a packed, awesome day! We kicked the day off with some team devotion, followed by church, then a little bit of sightseeing in Berlin. Since getting here I think all of us have grown to appreciate more and more the rich culture and history of this city. After a small tour of Berlin we headed back to Middle Point (AIA’s drop in/meeting place in Berlin) for more team devotion.
After only a few days, I can already sense God starting to make spiritual changes in my life. One thing that I wanted to focus on coming into this trip was being comfortable with praying out loud in front of others. Thankfully I had the opportunity to express that in front of the team before we had really started our devotions together and it gave me a little sense of relief. Still, the thought of praying out loud made me nervous. However tonight I was asked to close the evening in prayer and to my surprise, felt very little nausea (lol). Maybe it wasn’t the most eloquent of prayers, but it was a small step of growth for me. I’m also starting to understand that God doesn’t care about my words so much as what is in my heart.
