Today, i started to help out with the young children at Vacation Bible School. There was a lot of kids separated into groups. I was assigned as a helper. There was one kid that had his attention on me most of the time. He had no problem talking to me about anything. The thing im still thinking about now is what happened at the end. We were all gathered in the sanctuary closing with a prayer. I see all the kids bow their heads and close their eyes. Then i look over to this child and he is looking through the Bible, but not praying with us. I felt like he didnt know how to pray. Now that i saw this, my goal is to talk to him more about God. To help him more understand.
Just recently, our youth group went on a mission trip to Trenton, NJ. While we were there we repaired houses. We were separated into crews with random people that you didnt know. My crew was assigned to this ladys house by the name of Ms. Thomas.We got really close with her over the week. She called us her six little babies. I just got a call from her tonight and i missed it. She left me a message saying that she was praying for me and that she loves me dearly. I am so pleased that i got to meet such a loving woman. There are so many things i love about her like the times she prayed with us from her telling us about her God sightings throughout her life.
I will definately be going on another mission trip. I truly recommend doing one. It is so life changing!
Yes, i am the vine and you are the branches
Those who remain in me, and i in them
Will produce much fruit
For apart from me you can do nothing!
This was our theme verse for the week!
REMAIN IN ME
