We had a great time giving all of the school supplies out to the kids in INVU. They were excited to say the least and we had enough for every child to get a bag of supplies! Many times we have NO IDEA how many extra kids will show up because they have heard that something is going on in the park. Anyway, we shared with them why we were there and why we continue to reach out to them every Saturday. We also shared with them that these supplies were gifts from God that he supplies through people in the church. We continue to pray that the love ofChrist will continue to go forth and we will continue to be used to live out the Gospel to theentireneighborhood. Thanks to all who donated towards the school supplies---the kids and we were more than blessed!!

Thomas on his first day of school
SO SO sorry we have not blogged in a few weeks. I have been super sick with "all day" pregnancy sickness since we returned home and it is all I can do just to get through each day being a wife and mom to my family. Praise the Lord I am beginning to feel better little by little as I am almost 3 months along so I am welcoming some relief!!
A few days after we arrived home, a friend, Todd Honour, from CC Lexington came to work alongside us for a week and just get a firsthand view of what we are doing here. He and Daniel did a few little construction projects and he just did life with us for the week. It was a blessing to have him here with us!
Thomas returned to school today! He was super excited and we are excited for him as he begins a new year with all of his friends. The public school in the area starts on Thursday so we are busy this week preparing all of the backpacks with school supplies to provide for each of the children in INVU, the neighborhood where we minister weekly. We will be handing out all of the backpacks on Wednesday and will be sure to post pictures of the event.
Kid's Club is back in full swing. What an awesome ministry! We are LOVING being a part of blessing these kids each week and many of the moms are starting to come as well. Daniel and I are really praying about a way to reach these moms on a deeper level such as a weekly Bible Study or something. Please be praying for this as this has been on our hearts since we returned.
Thanks for all of your continued support and prayers--we love you and are so thankful for you!!!
