As promised, here’s my favorite picture from Day 3. I think it captures the week. So many smiling faces! And for so many reasons these smiles make me smile. We had a week where hungry kids were fed, muscles were moved and exercised, the number of heartbeats were increased, kids heard they were special, unique and a masterpiece (who doesn’t want to hear that?!) AND kids heard that God loved them enough to make them that way. We challenged the kids of our community to care for their bodies because they are a gift from God. There were leaders who were able to pray with kids who had never talked to God before. Youth and adults were able tell children that God loves to hear from them and talk to them too! We had an elementary school teacher hang out with students from her school in a setting where she could share her faith. We shared with over 150 kids that God wants to be their Forever Friend. It was an adventure, this past week. And every moment makes me smile.
