Chapel…

This week’s chapel focused on the story of Paul and his travels.  While Paul was making his own plans to share the Gospel, he was sensitive to the Holy Spirit and following God’s lead in a different direction.    

Paul listened to and obeyed God.  It is good practice to think about how to listen to God’s voice and obey.

Ask your student to tell you about it!
