this {WEEK}

The Surf Ministry meeting went great! We feel like we all value and share the same purpose and vision. However, we all have a little different approach to fulfilling that vision. It's going to be awesome to see how God uses us all to reach and meet different needs and people. Our intentions are to continue to meet as a group regularly, as we continue on this journey together.

The Boardstore Surf is going well. We had some better days in sales and our stock is starting to fill up. Today(Saturday) Jeremy said there were 15 kids hanging out in the shop in the morning and they came and went through out the day. Pray that they would find a real sense of belonging there.

Religious Education class this week was... good, challenging, scary and awesome all at the same time! We shared the story of Jesus feeing the 5,000. Jeremy researched a bunch of statics and numbers to show the kids how many people in this world are hungry. It painted a good visual picture for them. They seemed to really love it. At the end of my one class, I asked if any of the kids had any questions. These were a few:
"How do you know God is real? It's not like he's just sitting there"
"Who made God?"
"If Jesus is God, Can I be God?"
"Did God have{give birth}Jesus?"
Then there was a whole conversation with a little girl who didn't know Christmas was Jesus's birthday.
I've just assumed that kids in western cultures know the "basics" of Christianity. But they sure don't! Please pray for our RE classes. It's such a huge opportunity!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We pray for God's presence in your life! Blessings!
