Sorry that it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m staying rather busy.
Ministry out at the North Grand Villas has been pretty different over the last month or so. They’ve hired a new program director there named Constance. She’s the third one who’s been out there in the last 6 months, and she’s been by far the best. The kids really like her, and that helps me out. Her programs have been well-attended, and through them I’ve met a bunch of new kids. There’s been a lot of turnover of residents since the summer, so I have a whole new group of kids I’m teaching, ministering to, and getting to know.
That brings a whole new set of challenges. Mainly, many of the kids know next to nothing about who Jesus is. It’s exciting to be able to teach them about His love for them. It’s also kind of sad to see. Here we are smack in the middle of the Bible belt, and there’s a huge group of kids who have never even opened a Bible. Pray for these kids, that they’ll grow in understanding of God, His Son, and the work of the Cross.
