Game night keeps growing in popularity. This past Saturday we had about 60 people. It began with a devotion about seeking God's direction in prayer so we are sure to know His will. The verse was 1 Thessalonians 5:17, "Pray without ceasing." The drama part had us all laughing as 10 children rushed to the designated pew while Nathanael modeled stopping to ask God which way to go. After everyone understood this point, that we need God's direction daily to show us where to go, even if we think we know, we tried again. "1, 2, 3...Go!". Off they ran except for 4 who bowed to God in prayer first. Those who ran eventually realized their error and turned around hurrying back to the stage area to pray. We need to do something like this again, but it was fun way to illustrate the idea of needing to pray often for God's guidance.
Enjoy the pictures!
Carmen spent about 45 minutes holding Selena's baby and walking him to sleep outside of the noise and busyness of the game activity. She did this just because she is such a sweet girl and wanted to let Selena have a break. I praise God for our teens. They are learning to serve God with their whole hearts.
