Dubbed Project 47/32, the adventure wasn’t for fame or glory. Jesse, Zach, Jeff, and Kyle set out on bikes, riding from Seattle to San Diego. Using their passions for music, biking, and fellowship with homeless people, they played house shows where they talked about misconceptions of homelessness and raised money for local homeless shelters.
Watch this video to hear more about their story.

"True service is undergoing the love that empowers us to stand where Christ stands -- with the vulnerable." This week, Jarrod McKenna examines what Jesus' encounter with the adulterous woman teaches us about this week's Live Life challenge to serve.
Who is someone in your community you don't know well? Do you value everyone in your community as equal? How does the love of God change how you view other people?
Think about someone in your community whom you wouldn't normally connect with, then find a way to learn their story and get to know them!

Jarrod McKenna is amazed by grace. A peace award winning nonviolence trainer and activist, Jarrod is now World Vision Australia's National Advisor on Youth, Faith & Activism. Jarrod with his amazing wife and son Teresa and Tyson, are three of 17 people living at First Home Project; an innovative community welcoming, housing and empowering refugees.
Our team member, Katie Swift, shares the journey she is on during Lent to rediscover thankfulness. It is so important for each of us to hold an attitude of gratitude, to remember God's presence and not take even the little blessings for granted.
This week we are challenging you to remember what you are thankful for. What elements bring fullness of life to you? Who are you thankful for? Write a note to someone who has impacted your life and give thanks to them.
