The Valley Project, a group of 12 college students, is not going to Africa or another far-off country to share the gospel; they are bringing the love of Christ to their community. So many people see the need outside of the United States but are blind to the needs around them. The Valley Project meets these needs by working Vacation Bible Schools, painting houses, volunteering in orphanages, leading worship at local churches and this weekend they held a camp for the youth on South Padre Island. Most of the youth that attended the camp had never been to something like this before because camps were too far away and because of money issues.
It was exciting to see college students leading the worship, praying with the youth, planning the events and building relationships with the people in their community. These students could have gone on vacation or stayed home with their family, but they chose to give three weeks of their time to God. In about a week, the praise band and two of the Valley Project members are going to Venezuela to work and minister. They are serving as a part of Texas Hope 2010, and I ask that you keep them in your prayers.
