Every Spring Break, I go on tour with my Gospel Choir, the Elon University Gospel Choir. We are not just a choir, we are a family. This year was amazing! Service was very impacting. We saw the difference we made and it was very powerful to know that we could actually make a difference; even if it was just as small as feeding someone or cleaning up a garden or helping build a church. Service was very eye-opening. There are a lot of homeless people in the world, not just in Atlanta. We pass by them daily. Most of them just want something to eat and to be on their way. Some just want to talk. I want to help out the homeless while I finish out the rest of my education at school and wherever I go on to after graduation. There is still a lot of work to be done in the Lower Ninth Ward. Houses are still damaged from Hurricane Katrina. We learned a lot from Vincent, a man who works with Sustain the Nine. If you ever go to New Orleans, go work with Sustain the Nine! www.sustainthenine.org. While The Feed the Homeless Tour is still in Atlanta, go work with them! They are on Facebook.
God is really amazing. He gave me a theme to live out and learn about during tour before Spring Break started: freedom. The theme reappeared in the churches we performed and in the Bible study we had. God gave me a poem about freedom and I got the opportunity to perform it. We already have the free will to live how we want. We have the freedom to live for Christ because He died for us. We are righteous because He submitted His life to God on Good Friday and rose on Easter Sunday. I’m learning to trust God more to enjoy this freedom in Christ. No more fear, no more worries. It’s exciting and terrifying.
I’m going to have a fun post about Spring Break as well. I have to share the fun moments too!
