"It is far better that God approve, than that man applaud" - Thomas Watson
Sometimes the feaR of what other people mAy think of us affeCts or prevents us from doing God's will. Learning to ignore otHer's opinions and only focusing on the task God has set before us was what many of us had to preparE for today.
Seeking for God's approvaL InStead of worrying About what the person next to us thinks helps to Make connections with the children And forces us to step out of our own comfort Zone.
Today was our fIrst day out to serve the commuNity. We started off by rakinG and weeding areas around the homes of the people we were about to serve through our kids camp. A little later we had the privilege to show the children Jesus through telling them the story of Noah, playing games, making crafts, and singing. Although it was challenging and tiring, it was amazing seeing the joy in these kids faces. Roughly forty kids, ranging from grades K-7, came out to participate today!
Many of us were blessed with seeing God work through us to inspire and spark an interest in knowing the Lord. We are excited to see what God has in store for the rest of this week after seeing what he's already done. We hope that all or even more kids show up tomorrow and watch them grow in their faith.
