Junior High Mission Trip: Day 3

pic 1As told by Ashlen Herrin:

Hi this is Ashlen. I’m in the 7th grade and this is my first time on the mission trip. I was assigned to REC and at first everyone had been telling me how awful Rec was, and how hot I would be, and to be honest that made me really nervous. I had prayed often about my experience and I had asked God to help me to be able to reach the kids and to be able to go out of my comfort zone to love on some other kids. God really answered my prayers today and I had a blast in Rec, I honestly think that it was my favorite part of the day. God has really shown me some of the ways that I can connect with all the kids in VBS and I now feel very prepared to take on the rest of the week.

Today was a great day for learning about Jesus.  The kids were very excited and engaged in the worship and lessons.  The connection we had with the kids was outstanding. We had a good amount of kids for each grade level.  We learned that we are God’s masterpiece. The  fifth and sixth grade class I had was having so much fun painting and learning  that we are a piece of art. The worship was an amazing experience for the kids. We jumped for joy and sang at the top of our lungs for the Lord. Recreation was great, all of the grades were engaged in the games and activities. We played red light green light, kick ball, chalk, and played on the playscape.

Prayer Requests:

Child with special needs in the 1st and 2nd grade

Kids that aren’t interested in participating would join in

For no one to get discouraged and keep the energy up

That the kids will all take something away from the week

Clouds for the Rec Team

The Holy Spirit to guide what we say

Boy in 1st Grade whose mom is having financial difficulties

Elementary girl who doesn’t have food at home
