Day 3: Adopt-a-block outreach

Posted by: Thomas

We woke up this morning early to go "march" with the men and women disciples. We ate breakfast and then we prepared for the busy day that we had. First we packed up and went to the First Assembly of God church. We loaded up the vans and went to a neighborhood and broke into smaller groups with a disciple and went door to door. We let the families know about what we were doing. ( We were having a childrens outreach to the community. Church on the street was giving away free food, clothes and a message to the parents.) Some of us met this kid named Will. He was pretty cool and entertained some of us. We played with the kids on the playground and danced with them and really enjoyed the first part of the day. We came home and ate lunch late and we were just in time for a wedding that was going on. (the s attended the wedding and the guys just chilled.) It was a really interesting story about how the groom and the bride met and married. After the reception was over, we helped set up for a "party" that church on the Street was having for some of the teenagers in the neighborhood. The party took place and we went to this room where "Atmosphere" was playing. Benji, Nick, and Andrea played for a worship service that was going on with the s here. They all sang and shared each of their testimonies. We have had a really busy day and we hope to upload some more pictures soon.

Love all the details. Want to know more about the "march." How did Will respond to your message? What did he do to be so entertaining? It is scary to think that people would fight over shoes.... No boys wanted to go to the wedding??????? Can't imagine why not. The party sounds like a great idea. Wish I was there to hear you guys speak. I think each one of you has a tremendous amout to share. Can't wait for the next post. You guys are doing a great job! I love the pictures! How are Mrs. Barnhill and Mr. Spidell doing? Lol, Mrs. Harrison

Thomas - thank you for your wonderful blog! We're here praying and waiting for news from you. You have no idea how anxiously I wait for news from all of you. It seems like God is really using you in Arizona and I am so glad to see that you are all using your gifts and talents to touch the community. The story of the children fighting over shoes was especially heart-wrenching. It only goes to show how much we take for granted. Say hi to everyone and keep up the good work.

Say hi to everyone, and tell them their in my heart, my thoughts, and my prayers.

Love you all,
Mrs. Caperna
