Letters to Africa and Teaching Songs
Our Church has a sister church-a long distance sister- in Africa. I can't remember which country it's in however. This month our entire church is focusing on outreach/missions. Every department is involved somehow! In Children's Church yesterday, the kids wrote letters to the children in the African Church. It was reported to us by an informer, and I smile, that Bethany's letter included the following: "I have 1 dog, 1 cat, and 3 crickets!" Well, truth be known she had four, but one died enroute to it's....home. Daniel's group:they're singing a song for the congregation. I have never heard the song, but yesterday when Miss Nancy told them they were going to go into "big church" (cause we're all just a little too big in there) and teach us the song, Daniel just rolled his eyes, sighed and exclaimed, "Oh no, that's gonna take forever!!! (reflecting perhaps on personal experience?) We love Sundays at our house. We love to come home and talk about what we learned, the funny thing a friend did to the children's director that morning, how many cookies they may have eaten, etc. But Danny and I love the things we hear through the grapevine. It's then our hearts explode and are flooded with joy.
