“Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.”
Psalm 128:1 NIV
We had SOOO many kids on our patio this afternoon that even though I had somewhere else to be I couldn’t leave Csaba here alone with them. Even the two of us were not really enough to satisfy all their need for attention. We played cards, we played connect four, challenged their brains for hours with a new toy where they built channels for marbles – used to be one of our kids most favorite game – and watched 5 helicopters circling over our heads, guessing together what we will see on the news.
They just left. Everything is dirty, sticky and we both are totally worn out but God is good. We were able to talk to them about J. O. Y. (Jesus first, Others second and You last). We taught them not to break off the heads of the flowers bc the bees make honey out of the pollen (hence the sticky mess of honey tasting), took them apart when they were fighting and took them off the top of the parking cars when they started chasing each other. It was just another afternoon on our patio when the Lord blessed us with an opportunity to show His love to them.
Girls’ Club on our patio this afternoon while Csaba went to play soccer with the big boys in the park. Coloring, drawing, crazy 8s and lots and lots and lots of LOUD chirping. My head is spinning. I’m so glad our neighbor wasn’t blasting rap today! :)
We had 17 kids and they had a great time. We are so grateful for the opportunity to train in the elementary school gym for 6 weeks. After 45 minutes intensive training we had a short devotional and then played 5 v 5 games for the rest of the evening. Futsal on the floor is fast and the rules were new for some of them, but they are good and learn quickly.
|Now, since Christ defeated death on the cross, and He is the resurrected Savior, we have hope that by God’s grace we can also have eternal life with Him. So our theme for April is HOPE
