Ministry from the Young

Our church is pretty small. One adult Sunday school class on Sunday mornings, a few children in the congregation, and many snowbirds make up our congregants.

A fellow Methodist church in Las Cruces has come on a mission trip to lead Vacation Bible School in our little town.

About 15 youth and chaperones have decided to take a few days, come and sleep in our church, and lead Bible Study for our children.

What hearts they have!

I mean, how many kids choose to take time away from their comfortable beds to sleep on the floor of a church?

They have decorated our church like you could not even imagine! They have memorized their lines, prepared great music, and have wonderful hearts for our little ones.

It has truly touched me. That others, especially youth, have heard God's call on their hearts to be with others. To give of themselves selflessly.

I appreciate what they are doing. My Christian is having the time of his life tonight with his friends. The people working with him are so loving and gentle.

I love seeing God work.
