Rachel Cooper's blog.
Rachel is doing a summer internship with Disciples Homeland Mission in St. Louis, MO.
Subject: A Week at Urban Mission
Hi family! For those of you interested in what I'm doing this summer, here's a post I wrote for the Union Avenue Church blog describing a week in the life at Urban Mission Inn. Love you guys!
Jack's thought of the day:
“Wandered from your place of peace?
Don’t be discouraged by how often you wander from me. You are endeavoring
to form a new habit and
it takes time plus
Holy Spirit, Transform me into the person you want me to be.
