Ministry- It's all about relationships.


Friday night we had the privilege of hosting Youth in Action with 20 fantastics teens from the Logan area. We taught them a few classic American group games, recreated the story of the Jesus walking on the water Mad Lib style, and had a time of prayer together. The kids are wonderful and it is clear that the the Logan Church of the Nazarene invest much in the youth of their community.
Tonight we were able to participate in the evening worship service with a skit, testimonies and some more Ice-breaker games for a little unconventional worship/community- building. Heaps of fun!

Us human folk were created for community, which is why the church, the body of Christ, is so important. Worshipping together and building trusting relationships are key. The beautiful thing is that this community or family we call the "church" is colorful and rich, chock full of people from all cultures, languages, eating habits, hairdos, with every skin color in the rainbow. Here in Logan we are immersed in the Polynesian culture, represented by people from many different Pacific islands scuh as Samoa, New Zealand, Cook Islands, Fiji, and Tonga. Thank the Lord for this global family.

It's great to have you all here to stay with us and be with our church community for the next few weeks. I'm sure all of the kids will love the next few days of Wild Wacky Week as well if there are more gymnastics and puppy chow involved!
