World Changers Trip Journal 2023: Day 1 (July 17, 2023) - We’ll Be In Jersey Before Ya!

We arrived with no trouble at all. Leaving in the wee hours of the morning helped us get around DC and up to Neptune (NJ) several hours early. So early in fact, that we were here before the World Changers staff was ready for us.

We got checked in and settled had some preliminary meetings before we ate dinner and headed to Asbury Park Boardwalk. We spent some time taking a big group photo and walking the boardwalk with the hope of talking to people as we went.

We did have a group ask where we were from and when Chris Poland asked if she went to church, she said she was Jewish and began inching away from us while her friends kept talking with us.

We concluded the night with worship, Gospel-sharing training, and a message about Ruth chapter 1 reminding us that God’s way leads to life.

Now we await tomorrow. Our first full day on sites. Our crews have been assigned, roles decided, and students trained up. Here we go!!!!
