We visited two of the schools for the first time this year. We had so much fun seeing the kids again. They are getting so big! It's weird seeing how fast they are growing and moving on in life. This will be the last year for a lot of the kids that we have been talking to now for three years! We went and spoke to them about 1 Kings 13 where God spoke to Jeroboam and the Man of God, and how important it is to obey the Word of the Lord b/c He only has god things for us! We did a little drama with the story. That tends to keep their attention a little longer when they are acting and laughing. The second school we went to in San Juan Ermita the teachers acted out the parts in the story. The students loved it and of course I tried to get them to act as crazy as I could. My whole family went with me to the second school and our kids helped with the lesson and played in the games! They really had a great time!
It was really neat to see them again. More than three months had gone by without seeing some of them. They ran up to us and hugged us and said hello...felt weird b/c some of those guys I thought didn't care a thing about us being there and I usually end the day frustrated. But that goes to show you that you never know what impact you are making, and when you let God lead you..it can be eternal impacts! So pray for those kids and for us to have the creativity and energy to keep up with them! Good stuff!
