The joy of children


Alot has happened these past 2 weeks. I started my new job. Yay! Getting back to the groove of waking up early. If you know me well, you know I am not a morning person, but I am getting better. I started working at Florida Christian's summer camp. I truly think I have the best age group, 8-9 year olds. It has been the best job so far. I really enjoy working with the kids, even though I take a beatin' at the end of the day. We do alot of fun things: arts & crafts, ceramics, gym, trips to museums, the beach, etc.

I've been learing alot about kids. I am so surprised how much they know about technology, movies, style. They have the latest phones (sidekicks all sooped up), Nintendo Ds's, know about every movie, and wear Ed Hardy clothing. I've been seeing alot of attitudes, good and bad. Some don't know the concept of sharing while alot of them are so generous to give me their uneaten food. Even though I get a bit mean sometimes, I truly love them and enjoy listening to their stories & watching the things they do.

I had a devotional this week about being Ambassadors for Christ. As Christians, we are to raise the Name of Jesus Christ high- make His Renown known. I am praying and hoping that I will get out of my lazy boy chair & do more than supervise kids, but listen, love them, & share Christ.

Well, on the other side at FRC Doral Kids, things went so awesome on Sunday. I have the greatest volunteers and God has answered our prayers because we have 4 people that have shown interest in kids ministry & have already begun to serve. I am just praying God will show each one of them if this is the ministry He wants them in. I really have to get on the ball and spend time with God in the Word & in prayer, research, read, keep recruiting & building leaders. I have never done something like this, but I am truly honored and excited and don't want to become lazy & fail my Savior.

Its been a great two weeks. Excited about the weekend and next week we have EXTREME WEEK. It will be my first time and I am so ready to be there. It has also been nice to know that even though work for both Heredes and I has been long, it has been so great to come home and see each other and talk and miss each other. I love him so much! Read his blog (as i know many of you do) and continue praying for him. God is really blessing him and I am so grateful for the way He is using him. I am truly blessed. Blessings
