My Favorite Things from This Week

Week 3 is done. Seems like June went by so fast! Here’s what made our week special:

Joanna, Travis, and kids making smores
  • Friends from Greenville. 4 women and 11 children coming down for a 2-day, 1-night trip. They helped in the programming, and their kids got to play and connect. It was such an encouragement for us.
  • Other friends from Greenville mailed us an encouraging note, plus $100. That is, a one-hundred dollar bill.  Use checks people!
  • Got through to a kid to help him understand that he can never be good enough all on his own. Throwing in some Gospel principles here and there.
  • It was science week, so we had fun activities like making slime (I got to lead that one). Also, Joanna taught her kids how to make smores with a modified pizza box and the heat of the sun.
  • We are getting new kids every week. Parents are saying that they are hearing good things about the program. Got up to 34 kids one day this week.
  • Actually, there were at least two kids that we had great heart-to-heart conversations with.
  • Planning for upcoming Pet Camp, with the local 4-H person.. Trying to get some folks (teenagers? a family?) from Grace Church to help out.
  • Talent Show. Our first since the end of the school year. 4 of the 5 Espinosas took part; Sender covered me by going twice.
This was the encore presentation.
