Family Fun Day at SCA

For Family Fun Day this past weekend, the school administrator and his wife recruited help to put on a Carnival for the children and their families.  It was a privilege to be a part of, and there seemed to be a good turnout.  There were different stations for the children to play games at and earn prizes, and there were also stationary fun things like an inflatable slide and a cotton candy machine.

she was much more advanced than Phyllis ;0)

My station was a game in which the children had to put a clothespin on their chin and drop it into a bucket below.  Depending on the size of the child, the size of the hole was adjusted.  The kids did a GREAT job and really seemed to enjoy it!

Everyone was asked to bring a snack to pass and then there was an intermission when everyone took a break from games and got some grub.  It was an enjoyable time of food and fellowship.  Mr. Hagerty shared a devotional and a prayer before the food was fair game.

Brian’s station was also a HUGE hit, but it would never fly in the States.  He has a pellet gun, and he offered to use it as a station to have people practice their aim.  He set up a shooting range to have people try and hit the targets……there were difficult ones and more difficult ones.

To me?  I wouldn’t have hit a one, but it was fun watching others.  Now, although I can’t hit a target with a gun, I wanted to take the opportunity to share what target I CAN hit.....and you can too!  The Bible says, “2 My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Col. 2:2-3
Our prayer, especially at Easter, is that people here in Chile as well as back home would know Christ, and the life He offers to each one of us when we choose Him and His way.  Is it always easy?  Absolutely not!  But the bigger question is, “Is it worth it?”  The answer is, “ABSOLUTELY!!!” 

Praying for all our readers on this Easter holiday weekend!

We had the privilege of having a meal with Pastor Christian and his family on Sunday after church.  We enjoyed hearing stories and testimonies of God's faithfulness to them and sharing some of ours too!  We thought everyone might enjoy seeing and "meeting" them too!
