Preparing Well, July 2011 by Lori
It's GREAT to see one's work paying off. For over two years I've been working with a group of teenage girls who desire to minister to children. There have been several teaching and prepping days as I've sought to instill in them Jesus' model of loving the "little ones". Last week, Alma, the group leader, voiced to us how the Lord had been speaking to her about "going the extra mile" when ministering by REALLY preparing well. So, the girls (by themselves) spent hours pulling together songs, making a memory verse game and creating crafts for outreaches into a migrant camp. How wonderful to tag along to see the fruit of their labor. Please pray for these young ladies as they grow in their ministry skills.
