Just wanted to post a few pics of the fun going on this spring with Mission 2540.
With the nice weather has come lots of kids out wanting to play. That means lots chaotic tag games with 40 kids running around. You’d think this would wear them out enough to sit still and listen to my Bible stories. Um…nope.
At Easter time, I think it’s necessary to decorate some eggs. It’s also much cleaner and easier to purchase plastic eggs and let the kids use markers to do the decorating. They also stuffed them full of candy. Cypress Creek had a small crowd the day we did it, and it made for a nice, calm, fun activity. NGV did not have a small group. It was not nice or calm, but I think the kids had fun…
Every Easter, I read the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus stories from the Jesus Storybook Bible, which I love very much. I love it so much that we decided to give copies of it away to all our kids and families for Easter. Thanks to those of you who provided the funds for us to do so. We’ve handed out 40 of them to famlies, and a few more are still being handed out! Below is Taekwon showing off some of the books.
Finally, the Get Real Club at Travis is still going strong. I meet with about 10 kids from each of the grades (6th, 7th, and 8th) during the course of their lunches. We talk about anything and everything. And as our relationships have strenghtened, the kids are growing more and more honest about their hurts and dreams and desires. It’s been pretty amazing. Here are some of the 6th graders finishing up lunch before we head off to our room.
Life is fun and crazy in these parts. And it’s only going to get crazier: we’ve got a lot in store for the Summer.
