July 15, 2014: Mission, TX – Day 4

10487295_10102238376178287_2753962358293409900_nToday was our 2nd day of VBS in Mission, Texas.  I work in the youth group, 7th – 12th grade, and we played a game that they really seemed to enjoy called Tic-Tac.  You tape two full tic-tac boxes to the ends of a ruler, bite the middle, and shake your head to try and empty the boxes.  At first everyone was hesitant to play, but after our first group went, they all wanted to try it!  After the game, Brodie and Chase taught an awesome lesson about trusting God.  Then, we broke into small groups and asked the kids what trust meant to them, and some other questions.  One of the boys told me that he can’t trust very many people in his life, and explained to me that he saw his dad for the first time, in prison, at the beginning of that school year.  That really humbled me because I trust a lot of people in my life and my dad works from home so I get to see him all the time.  At the beginning of the week,  I was really not looking forward to working in the youth because I feel like I’m a lot better working with younger kids, but I am really glad I was put in youth.  I have learned so much this week already and formed relationships that I wouldn’t have had without being there.  After VBS was finished, we took a trip to Schlitterbahn on South Padre Island!  It was a lot of fun. Continue to keep us in your prayers!10487299_10102235945559267_4324322543314574695_n
