How, then, can they call on the name of the one they have not believed in?
And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?
And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?

The first 5.

Oh hey blog, nice to see you again? 
Sigh. The daunting task of keeping up a blog, but also a test of my narrative writing skills. Well, this is hey from Orlando. To be honest I am convinced I'm quite incapable of putting these 5 days into words that would effectively express how crazy it has been so far. Crazy good. 
The staff prayed over literally everything. And that has made all the difference, there's just a huge peace in being here. I have 5 roommates, and it's been such a blessing getting to know them. I feel like I've known them for so long. Cheesy but true. 
There's a beautiful lake on the property with a ton of lilypads and an amazing view on the horizon. Yesterday night 2 other girls and I were just laying on the dock, watching the sunset just completely at peace and in awe. It was a moment. 
The last 2 days John Bills was teaching us on hearing the voice of God. God was moving in our lives and breaking strongholds and walls, and it was so needed and so good to see everyone claiming freedom. Today we did a blank-page intercession in small groups and it was amazing to see God giving each of us a piece of the picture. God is speaking. 
If God can move so powerfully and bring us so close in 5 days, what will we as a group be doing 3 months from now? 
I am just so incredibly blessed to be here, to have this opportunity, to know these people, to be loved by such an amazing God. 
This is home.
