Hellooo everybody! I really don't know how to start these blogs, but I guess I'll start with introducing myself! My name is Alex Her, and I am one of the team 2 teachers. Man.. I really don't know where to begin... For our first performance, we went to Hyundai High School. Now, this concert on the surface didn't seem like that great of a concert. Some people were sleeping, talking, and weren't really paying attention. I felt really discouraged and worried for the kids. I've been on that performing side before, and I know that its very difficult to worship when the crowd isn't really reciprocating. However, the team 2 kids were really giving it their all on the stage and then I was reminded that we are worshipping an audience of one. Not for man, not for ourselves, but for God. I saw everyone really worshipping with their hearts and not just their lips. I felt so proud of them, and as a leader, I was just humbled. I am always learning something from these kids and I still have a long way to go. My heart goes out to them and I want to continue to serve them as best as I can, and most of all, serve my God.

This is Eric. He recently received Christ only about 10 months ago after being deported from the US. His testimony is powerful and his heart is so real. His life is an amazing testament of God's grace and sovereignty and this is just a little snippet of us singing to him to bless and encourage him. This song, translated, is saying that God will never give up on you. Please pray for Eric as he fights the good fight and continues to live for God. Please pray that his faith will be strengthened as time goes by and please pray that his foundation will be solidified in Christ. Satan will probably try to bring Eric down, but our God is greater.
