Here are photos from Thursday, day 4 of Local Missions Summer Outreach Week:
And a few brief comments from Outreach Week leader, Todd Keeler:
- This year we are experiencing the highest level of attendance from neighborhood kids.
- God has been bringing a wide range age range to our outreach (age 3 to 19). We are happy to see him bless us with meaningful conversations with the older teenagers in the neighboorhood. One of these teens came to a Bible study last night with some of the volunteers who invited him.
- We are seeing kids be personally impacted by the Christ-centered lessons we teach on a daily basis. One 10-year-old girl was observed extending kindness towards other kids. When asked why she was doing this, she responded that she had been inspired by the example of Jesus as explained during the camp.
- One mom in the neighborhood told the volunteers that she had never seen this many kids join a community activity. It is spectacular to know that adults in the community are affirming and commending our efforts.
