Playing with the kids in the city school

We finally were able to go back to one of the city schools in Chiquimula to play with the kids and teach them from God's Word! We had not been to this school in a while because of their test scheduling or conflicting schedules. But we went this morning and had a wonderful time!! My team lost really bad in the game we played! I love playing with them and getting them all-keyed-up and crazy for their teachers after we leave! Doesn't sound like me? I always try to get them into the games by making it competitive, but this time it back fired on me! We lost really bad! But to make everybody mad and crazy...the last attempt we had to try to win I told everybody that whoever won this one, won the whole thing! Some agreed thinking they would beat us again and others were yelling noo!! Well we WON!!! Haha! We were happy but the other team didn't seem to like me making up rules as we played....some people just are sore losers! I bet some of y'all who are reading now are even getting a little fired up huh? Haha Good stuff! We did the drama based on the Good Samaritan from the Bible! We had some of the kids act out the story as Nancy read! It was wonderful!! All the kids were laughing and participating really good! Then Nancy shared and taught about the story planting the seed in their minds and hearts! The teacher that allows us to come is a Christian and really works hard teaching these kids and trying to lead them to Christ, but with it being a public school and the fact that the principle is not a Christian, it gets tough sometimes. While Nancy was praying with the kids at the end the principle starting walking down the hall towards us, and Nancy had to cut the prayer short b/c the teacher was afraid that if the principle finds out he won't let us come back. So keep this teacher and her kids in your prayers that God will protect them and cover them with His grace and give opportunities for her to teach the kids about God's love and truth everyday!  God is good!!!
