I have the awesome privilege of co-coaching some of the best kiddos in the world! The team is an outreach team made of 9-12 year olds as well as some junior sponsors who are 13-14 years of age. They are currently on the road to our annual mission trip. I cannot go this year. It was very hard to see them off this morning. I am so proud of all their accomplishments this season. They do daily devotions, spend time in prayer, learn various dances and dramas as well as volunteer work. Below is a pic of my team with the Children of the World Choir that visited our church this month.
Last year we went to Shreveport to assist a church there with their summer school/VBS. We also spent a lot of time cleaning, organizing and visiting with the kids there.

It's amazing to me to see how God can work in children. They have big hearts, know how to serve and whom they serve. I truly enjoy seeing them grow. I am grateful to have the opportunity to be part of their foundation in Christ. I can't wait to hear all of their stories when they return, I just wished it would have worked out for me to attend.

So, to my team: I love you guys and I know your ministry and servanthood will be a blessing to all whom you encounter this weekend!

You know, it's something I was thinking about just this evening...

I admit, I'm not active christian, but I I truly believe that people who believe in God has a better life.

For example, in my neighborhood I know none of christian couples who has divorced. They life their life in harmony, raise kids and everything is perfect, because that's how they grew up and got the role model from their own family. Their kids probably live a fine life also.
