I think on trips like this it's really easy to compare yourself to other people, to think "this person has this vision or this thing God has placed on their heart" or "this person is more creative or talented than me". But this week I've been thinking about how it's right to place confidence in the gifts and opportunities that God has given you, and to act on that - because it's not a confidence in yourself or how great you or other people think you are, but it's a confidence in God's plan and that he will use you and equip you with everything you need. And I'm super excited to see how God uses everybody here, together and individually, as parts of his amazing plan to glorify Jesus!
