When a kid asks, “why did God create us” or “why do people kill each other” how do you answer? Well, last night Curtis and I had devotions and decided before we could lead very many of these, we needed to know where these kids are at spiritually (what they have been taught). We read from Proverbs 2, saying God wants us to gain understanding, and seek understanding. We told the kids that they could ask any questions they had about God, the Bible, Jesus, or anything else faith related, and in the following devotions and Bible studies we had we would address the questions one at a time…in thirty minutes we had 52 questions! I just kept writing as fast as I could – now we have our next 52 weeks planned J Curtis and I both went back to our little home pleased with the kids, and their deep desire to learn.
On Tuesday afternoon Curtis and I decided it was a good day for a game day! We played Ultimate Frisbee (thank you Rene for the Frisbees), Duck, Duck, Ostrich (they didn’t know what a goose was, so we modified the game), Four Corners, and several name games. We all had a blast, and when we checked the time it had been four hours (and we couldn’t move anymore)!
This picture is during Ultimate Frisbee. Notice the kids are all playing barefoot, I don’t know how they do it…but it doesn’t slow them down at all! (Curtis thought he could do it too, but that ended with gigantic blisters and a funny limp! – maybe with more practice.)
