Good morning! Today's Big Picture Question is, "How did the people act when they saw Jesus?" People welcomed Jesus to Jerusalem as their King. They were so excited to see and celebrate Jesus! Talk as a family about a time when you were excited to worship Jesus--maybe a prayer had just been answered, maybe He protected you from something, or maybe you were just truly overwhelmed by His grace. Other than waving palm branches like we did during Pastor's Pals this morning, what are some ways we can show Jesus how excited we are to have a relationship with Him? Pray as a family; thank God for the gift of His Son and ask God to help you not take that gift for granted this week....
Good morning! Today's Big Picture Question is, "Why did Jesus wash His disciples' feet?" Jesus showed the disciples how to love and serve each other with humility. When was a time that someone served you even though you might not have deserved it? How did it make you feel to be served? Jesus set the example for us and showed us how we are to treat one another. Talk as a family about ways you can serve each other this week. As you go back to school tomorrow, how could you serve a coworker, classmate, or teacher? Pray as a family asking God to give you humility to put others before yourself this week.
Today was great! We started off by finding out that the river crossing between Mulato and Palomas was flooded. That means we couldn't go to one of our villages! Fortunately, our village came to us. We had an excellent day and look forward to finishing strong tomorrow!
Jordan Sutton- 11th grade- Tascosa High SchoolA great sunshine peeked through the clouds Monday and Tuesday, however that was not the same case when we woke up Wednesday. It rained all morning so our house project was limited, however just like every time something comes up Bradley and LJ use both of their heads to figure out something different for us to do. We went back to the church and helped clean up rooms so they could paint over them. I’m in the Judson group which has 140 kids and 19 group members. Today I helped with the memory verse and music, which turned out to be a great way of showing off my goofy side. Communicating with kids is one of my strong points so I was very intrigued to sing and play with them. Tonight we went back to FBC Shreveport and combined FBC’s Wednesday NightYouth Group and our Primetime to make PrimeGroup. We did a joint dodgeball game and did worship at the church. It was a great time of fellowship with fellow Christians.
Today was a great day! We had bible school at Palomas, Mulato and the secondary school. In the afternoon we helped with VBS at Bethel. We had good numbers and a youth class that consisted of 16 students! God is good!
Another great day today! We had some smaller numbers than we expected, but today was a holiday. We were able to start Bible school and we met some people from a previous year (1997!) who had started a house church! God is moving!Joel
We (Grace-Ann Combs, Maggie Bedwell, Georgia Riley and Gabby Douthitt) and the rest of the group spent the morning at FBC Shreveport. Dr. Raines preached on church unity and using the gifts God gives us to work as a whole body. After the service, we went to the fellowship hall and ate homemade Louisiana gumbo. After lunch, each group went on their own to their worksites and schools to pray for the week. We spent the evening at the Boardwalk and ended the night with some awesome worship and a devotion. Most of the day was spent preparing our hearts for the service we do this week and focusing on working as a whole. Bradley
