At night we would serve pancakes until 3 AM to spring breakers who some hadn’t eaten all day and provided free shuttle rides in order to keep the students of the streets and keep them safe. This part of the ministry was amazing. In the shuttle vans we had students in the back who would interact with the students with goal of sharing and living the Gospel to the spring breakers. While the students spoke with the spring breakers in the back, the passenger in the front would relay prayer requests and updates back to a church that served as home base for Beach Reach. The prayer requests would show up on screens throughout the church where there were typically 30-50 students praying at all times. While there I noticed several people recommit their lives back to Christ and several who committed their lives to Christ for the very first time! Praise God!
Additionally, a couple of our students met a young lady at our campsite one evening who was very distraught and tired of how she was living life. Our students shared Christ with her and she accepted! Praise God that he placed us in the right place at the right time! Our students are still in contact with some spring breakers they met in Texas. One of the most encouraging things that occurred this Spring Break is what took place after we got back. Many of the students came back and shared their experiences with their friends, roommates, and co-workers. They have continued to share their faith with all who will listen. They are eager to continue talking to friends and family this summer and next school year! Thank you for all of your prayers. There is so much that took place in South Padre Island. If you would like to know more please let me know. Please stay tuned for statistics from the Spring Break trip.
