Sunday night is our Fundraising Banquet. Please pray for the donations, etc. for the night. It has been a lot of hard work to get this evening put together.
One recent Friday night, we raked leaves in the Mayfair neighborhood as a service project. Our time was restricted, but we were still able to load a trailer of garbage bags filled with leaves.
On October 31st, Leslie, Carmen and I helped out at the Carpenter’s Church with their Carpenter’s Carnival. There were 213 kids and parents who stopped by to play games, get their sugar fix and hangout in a safe secure environment. Please pray as we continue to build relationships with the kids and their parents.
One of the things I enjoy at the Youth for Christ Hockey League is taking care of the concession. We basically break even on this, but I get to talk to a number of the kids every week.
Last night at the Youth for Christ Hockey League, I had a young man who is new to the program. He came up to me to buy a drink and I asked how he was doing. This is the first time I have really meet him. He just blurted out that his birth mom had died and talked about being adopted. I was somewhat floored. I have heard the story before, but it felt like the first time I had heard it. I asked how he was doing and he said okay. Please pray for me as I build a relationship with him.
I am excited by seeing some of the fruit of our labor. The kids from Drop-In are going to Sunday School at Carpenter’s and as they get older they are developing a servant heart and helping out at Youth for Christ and the church. This should continue as more kids reach school age.
