Week 2 1/2:
The Saturday after Super Hero VBS at Covenant, June 21st, we had a group come in for an outreach event from our church in NC–Nazareth Community Church. Do you know what else happened on Saturday, June 21st?? It was the HOTTEST day in recorded history ever in the whole wide world. Not really, but it felt like it. For real. I am just glad that we had a bunch of troopers with us that day, because it was not one for the faint of heart. Or for the faint of skin. I’m having a hot flash just thinking about it.
Even when the kiddos walked on the ground it felt like the desert–but Anthony had his own solution…
But God did send a great treat to cool us off. The shaved ice man offered up a deal that we couldn’t refuse because he said God has blessed him so much that he wanted to give back. And boy, they were good! (If you need shaved ice for an event, let me know!)
As we wrapped up this second week of summer the kiddos learned more about God’s love because they experienced it through the hands and feet of our friends. The witnessing and face painting and Bible stories and crafts and snacks and recreation all made for a great day.
We were certainly blessed by our friends from Rockwell. There are a bunch of fine people there and we love and miss them dearly. They are our cheerleaders, supporters, & encouragers. It meant a great deal to us to have them take part in God’s work in Countryside. The Hinson’s love you guys!
