A group of ACT'ers participated with Global Connections and Wes Blood to provide free furniture and move it to the residences of international students early in September. We partnered with Wes to continue this effort.
At the end of September we enjoyed the awesome opportunity to experience the work of the Central Detroit Christian and missionaries to the community working in Dearborn as a part of our Fall Getaway.
We enjoyed a great month of fellowship activities including our new tradition of “Messy Twister” (and yes, it was messy - check out our facebook posts for details) and our First Friday Family Film Festival. Many students attended a Thursday night UT football game which resulted in a lot of fun and laughter.
Our Wednesday nights have been busy with a crowded campus house for our Family Dinner followed by our Bible Study which has focused on the book of Psalms. A reminder that the book of Psalms is rife with powerful emotion. We have investigated how the Psalmist deals with the depth of feeling present in throughout the Psalms.
We are excited to have a large men’s group meeting on Mondays and our women’s group meeting on Thursdays. We are blessed to have so many great leaders who continue to step up in leadership roles.
God has blessed us with such an awesome group of supporters. We thank you for your notes of encouragement, emails and dropping in on us! We love it! So many have been touched by the ministry of ACT through the years and it is awesome to know that God has allowed us to carry on that tradition.
