We Are Still Here!!!

Yes I know I should probably be sent to "Time-Out" since I haven't posted in so long....but I promise we're still alive and still getting plenty done!  We took the opportunity with the winter down-time to get some organizing done and also some planning for the spring/summer season.  (We still did lots of food and clothing distributions during the winter, but didn't get to do our regular evening visitations in the trailer park as much.)

The winter clothes are all boxed up and on the shelf for next winter season....

The kids summer clothes are all sorted and folded by sizes and ready to be distributed to neighborhood kids during our summer outreach activities.....

We are working on getting the ministry supply shelf stocked back up.....

And we have our aliens ready to hit the neighborhoods.....

Wait.....aliens??  Ready to head out to the neighborhoods?? YEP!  We're getting our ducks in a row to start our alien-themed VBS.  This VBS will be MOBILE :)  We're hitting the streets with these lessons and planning to teach the local Granville County kids how they can be aliens in this world by living for Christ. 

We have a couple of folks already volunteering to help and we're getting excited!  We'll be going with the flow to start and seeing how God leads us to tweak areas, but we plan on having games, snacks, skits, music, lessons and lots of learning about Jesus.  We plan to go into a neighborhood for 2 nights in a row - about an hour and a half each night.  The first night's lesson will be "Take Me To Your Leader", where we'll take a common alien-themed saying and turn it into a lesson about who our leader in this world should be....JESUS.  We'll give the kids the basics of Jesus and how someone can "get to Him", through repentance and faith.

The next night will be "Out of This World" or "Not of This World" and it will be based on the verses in John and other places in the New Testament, that instruct us to live as if we're aliens in this world, because it is not our home.  This lesson will help teach the kids how living differently and changed is what happens when a life is given to Jesus.

Please join in and pray for us as we start out this new summer mission!  We will continue to distribute food as the Lord provides - but we really want to make sure that we take advantage of the opportunity to get out and share the Gospel this summer!

If you want to be a part of this in any way, just let us know!  We'd love to have you!

Loving Radically Through Christ,
