Well, my time in Newark has come to an end. I have been home for a few days now and have enjoyed resting and relaxing while getting ready to go back to school. I would like to thank everyone again,for reading, praying, encouraging, and supporting me. The Lord has blessed me immensely through you all!
I was encouraged when I left Newark at the end of my time there because I really believe that God is doing great things in Newark. Although I saw so much brokenness, hurt, and despair in Newark, I also saw so much beauty – in the faces of joyful children, the thankfulness of mothers, and the sunrise every morning. In the 1600’s, the founders of Newark said that Newark would one day be the closest thing to heaven on earth. I have faith that God is doing a new thing in Newark, he is working and changing lives. It was such a blessing to be a part of what he is doing, even though it was hard at times. Throughout the moments of joy and sorrow, God has shown me so much about His plans, His promises and His purposes. Thank you, friends and family. Please keep the city of Newark and Safe Haven in your prayers!
