Today we left Monticello and headed to Chicago. The Navy Pier was a lot of fun, and we got to experience some of the flavor of Chicago. Our time at Catholic Charities was truly a blessing. It was hard work, and we were already pretty tired, but God gave us the energy to shine His light to the people who came to eat. As we mingled with the guests and listened to their stories, it gave us a better appreciation for the many blessings in our lives. We could feel the connection with some of the people as we performed and served. When we finished, we had one of the guests turn his chair so he could shake our hands and thank us by name (as shown by our name tags). It was truly a blessing to see how powerful the Holy Spirit can be, moving through our hearts and into our guests' hearts. It was really emotionally moving to see their eyes tear up, to feel tears in our eyes, and to see the energy flowing through the room. God was with us today, and we need as many prayers as possible; prayers for patience, flexibility, and the Holy Spirit to be with us and our audiences.
With love in Christ, Sarah Fowler
