July 2 Update!
Thank the Lord for volunteers!
Apparently we have 96 children total registered for Day Camp. We haven't had more then 60-some kids at a time though. This past week we went to Belle Isle and our focus was on England. We had volunteers from Calvary Church who literally saved the day. I don't know how we would have made it through the week without their help. They are a God send.
We have this week off for the 4th of July and next week we are focusing on China and we're going to the Planetarium! Woot!
Once again, if anyone is looking to help out, please let me know!
June 23rd Update!
Just finished the first week with the kids! It has been a challenge to say the least. The theme for the summer is "The Olympics" and this week the focus was on Greece. We made wreaths, sashes, played football 'shot put' and Frisbee 'discus.' We also taught the kids about the 10 commandments and went to the Detroit public library where most everyone was issued a library card. So far I have been cried on, climbed on, bitten, hugged more times than I can count, talked back to, disrespected, apologized to, hit with basketballs and on Thursday I waited for one of our girls in the bathroom as she was getting sick all the while hoping we wouldn’t miss the bus to the library because we were leaving soon.
It has been a loooong and eye opening week. But everything is worth it if only one child sees Jesus in what we do. Every day is better than the last. Looking forward to what next week brings! Please pray for us!
June 5th Update!
Hello everyone! So far I have completed a retreat full of devotions and team building with the 11 other interns I will be living and working with this summer. Now I am in the thick of planning for Metro Kids, a six-week day camp where up to 50 children from the Detroit area will be coming to the Metropolitan United Methodist Church for fun, worship, and some Bible.
I'm excited for it, albeit a bit nervous. Prayers and financial contributions are encouraged! :]
