Another Week of Children's Ministry

We had another great day of Children's Ministry. I think that we are conflicting with school now that the kids have returned to school this week. We had about 55 kids this week. We had a great time learning about Adam and Eve, playing Shark and Minnows and Duck, Duck, Goose. I am amazed how long it takes just to try to explain how to play Duck, Duck, Goose! We are changing the time for next week so that they kids will come at 5pm instead of 3pm. I am happy with any kids that come as they are little hearts that the Lord can teach, no matter how old they are. Praise be to the Lord for all that He is doing in the lives of these Lozi children!

First Day of Childrens' Ministry

Today was the first day of our Weekly Kids' Time at our house. Jeff got a final count of about 85 children. The ones that you see are just a glimpse of their faces. I asked each one of their names (a bit challenging) then went on to say that I would probably not remember their names but that God knows each one of their names and loves them all very much. I reminded them that God knows their name and they are very special to Him. From there we talked about all the things that God created. I got them around to God created the fish in the sea and that segued into playing Sharks and Minnows. It was a bit chaotic. The sharks are supposed to tap the minnows as they run by but some of them were tackling them to the sand. The kids didn't seem to mind too much but they all had fun. From there, I taught them the story of Creation with them acting things out for each day. It was a wonderful time with the kids and I am so happy that 85 children got the chance to hear that they are special and that God loves them! Tune in for more info next week. I'm sure that we will have even more kids. Yay, God!

Thank You, East Chamber Elementary - Winnie, Texas!!

Thank you East Chamber Elementary. You have been such a huge blessing to our kids. We have read the letters that you sent over and over again. What a simple thing but it has made a huge difference in our children. Thank you just doesn't seem to say enough but again,
