Wild and Wacky Week in Logan

It's hard to believe that we left Kansas City nearly 5 days ago! Life here in Logan has been incredible and we continue to enjoy hosting the "Wild and Wacky Week" for the kiddos at the Logan Community Church of the Nazarene everyday from 10am-3pm. This local body of believers pour their lives whole-heartily into the children and youth of the community and it is quite evident. We are so thankful to be able to serve alongside some devoted and compassionate leaders here in Logan; two of whom are Shane and Alise. . amazing Christ-followers and talented youth workers!

Last night we also hosted an "inner beauty" night for the teen girls here in Logan. It was a blast as we played games, dove into scripture and learned engaged in discussion on what it means to have beauty that goes deeper than external appearance. Johanna even taught the girls how to do simple hand massages and we all got to practice on each other. Heaps of fun and quite powerful!

Today is our last day for "Wild and Wacky Week" and tonight we will host an evening of fun for all the teens . The plan for tomorrow includes a day of relaxation on the beach: surfing and shopping! Sunday we will showcase what the kids have been learning all week and enjoy some great worship and fellowship.

Thank you for your prayers, seriously! The Lord is using His people to bring him glory, and that includes us! We are safe and healthy, learning heaps and ready for whatever He has in store for the rest of our time here! Please continue to cover the team and both the Logan and Maryborough communities in prayer.

Our "Billets" (Host families) are such a blessing to us: Jean and Eddie; Ruth and Reg; Mareko and Ruth. . .THANK YOU!!! May God bless you for your sacrifice and service to us. We are learning heaps about service just from watching you!
