I learned many lessons from the trip. One of the biggest over-all life lessons was to see life as an adventure striving to have everything we'd say and do be “For His Honor and Glory”, to trust His ways and know that they are so much higher than our ways. Along with that there was the daily lessons of persevering, counting it all joy (despite little mishaps that came up), flexibility, working as team, and so on… I would love to say that in learning those lessons I mastered them then, but in that I am also like the Israelites and forget. On days where I lose sight the Jamestown 400 is a time I love to look back on and remember God's faithfulness.
On the history side: we loved being a part of the Hunt… we always hoped to make it just one more day so we could learn as much history and experience as much of what all those that spent countless hours putting it all together had in-store… In today’s culture the knowledge of true history and importance of it seems to be diminishing as people try and rewrite history or simply not take time to look back and see God’s work.
“Give ear, O my people, to my law;
Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
I will open my mouth in a parable;
I will utter dark sayings of old,
Which we have heard and known,
And our fathers have told us.
We will not hide them from their children,
Telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord,
And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.”
