Sharing Jesus!

Last night our Acteens group held our regular backyard Bible club (called M'n M's - Missions in Minden! and YES, we hand out M 'n M's to all the kiddos!) at Hillside Apartment Complex! We usually take off for the summer months, but school is IN and so are WE! We had about 17 girls/leaders and about 15 kids! That's a pretty good ratio, don't you think? Anyway, I was just sooo proud of some of our younger girls who just stepped right up to the plate and LOVED on those children! For some, it was their first mission project and yet they were confident and full of energy as they worked one-on-one for crafts; played duck, duck, goose; and led them in silly songs! During our Bible story, one of our older girls told the Bible story using our "JESUS" puppet! What a blessing to see these girls learning how to be the hands and feet of Jesus right in our own community! See you next time, little ones!

Fresh start???

Well, here I am...two YEARS later...(WHAAAT??). Several people have asked me lately why I'm not blogging or why I QUIT blogging ( I BARELY started) and I didn't have a good answer, soooooo here I am again. We'll see how this goes.

I guess I should bring everyone (all TWO of you!) up to date! We now have one precious little grandson, Landon Andrew Walker, and just found out we'll be having another grandchild in May!! Chris and Amanda just moved to Mozambique last week and told us Tuesday via SKYPE that they are pregnant!!! Well, THEY aren't pregnant but THEY are both super excited!! We can't wait! They will come home to have the baby - yay!!!

Another "biggie" in my life right now is that I have been diagnosed with gluten intolerance and have been adjusting my diet and lifestyle accordingly! Wow!! Our daughter was diagnosed with Celiac disease three years ago so at least I had some prior knowledge of what to do, etc. But it's still not an easy thing to deal with, although thanks to several sweet friends, I'm learning to manage! More about this later...
