NY Mission Team Update (Day 3)

Monday - July 3rd (Day 3)

We met the kiddos today! After our morning prayer & devotion and a subway ride (with a 40 lb suitcase & and a few flights of stairs) we arrived at the church, welcomed by over 60 children. ALL the kiddos had high ENERGY! The group was divided into 3-4 smaller groups for Bible study lessons. Space is an issue for this church but it doesn't keep them from getting maxed out with neighborhood kids. Have I mentioned ALL the kiddos had high ENERGY! So having extra adults to help refocus the kids appeared to be much appreciated. We have team members ready and willing to be used however directed by staff even if your are English speaking only yet asked to take over a lesson that has just been given in Spanish - no clue what the lesson was about, but you do have 30 seconds to review the lesson 😂 Morning session also included at least a 10 minute walk to the park. A walk to the park with busy intersections and 60 high energy kiddos 😲 Afternoon session was the time our team divided up and overseen the games, crafts, and music. Each with its own learning curves through the session but really mostly laughter. Looking forward to the adventures God has for us in the remainder of the week. - Lidenia Servin
