Katrina Team Update #2

Team with the junk they cleaned from the parkMonday we were working in the park and a woman named Eleanor came and started talking with us. She had contacts with the Boys and Girls Club of Pass Christian. Half the team went to talk with the leaders of the club. They were hesitant at first and told us we had to be generic and not talk about Jesus. But they gave us the OK. More than 2o kids came today from the Boys and Girls Club for a total of over 50! On top of that, the leaders from the club even participated in the songs and actions.

In the afternoon we are renovating the park we are doing Sports Camp in each morning. If anyone has great ideas for park renovations please comment.

Please pray for our health, a few aren't feeling so well. Please pray for effective ministry at Sports Camp, the Lord seems to be giving us an unusual opportunity. Please pray for the kids attentiveness during the rally. It is really hot and there are a lot of them. Please pray that we will all be encouragers. Please pray we will be good stewards of the project money we have been given to use. Thank you.

Mandi and TJ thanks for calling your Mom! So good to talk with some of you and hear how excited you are about what the Lord is doing there in PC and through your efforts. Brian, way to go with keeping hydrated!! Now, just use your Purell :-) Prayers for safety and health and stamina continue to be prayed and prayers for those kids who are coming to Sports Camp are being poured out before God. Keep on keeping on, Team! Love you all, Mrs. E (mom to a couple of you; Aunt Lori to a few of you)

Wow! What a great answer to prayer that so many kids came to Sports Camp! May God fill you with the Spirit for the work you are doing. May He give you strength to "count it all joy" and persevere to the end. May He give lots of fruit for His glory!
