We had a beautiful Saturday today and a wonderful time of ministry. I think the rainy season might be wrapping up soon. Our kids club went great although at first we thought most of the kids had forgotten. At 3 o’clock we had 2 kids! Now most of the kids have come long enough to know that we start on time and if they come late they will miss out. We ended up with 25 and 3 of those were first time visitors! In our youth group we had 1 visitor and a total of 7. The youth really had a good spirit this afternoon and we had a lot of fun spending time together and learning from God’s Word! We looked at Exodus 4 and the excuses that Moses made as to why He couldn’t do what God wanted Him to. We split them up into 2 teams and gave them .40 cents. We told them they had 10 minutes to better the .40 cents (whether by buying something or adding to it). Both teams came back and they had each bought 8 pieces of candy with their money. Some of them had even thought about selling the candies for more money (which is what we wanted). The activity was just to tie into the fact that we all have excuses why we can’t do things for God and why we can’t use our talents for Him, but in the end our excuses don’t matter because He is God!
