Making an Impact

This week we have been so blessed to be able to serve at the Impact Church of Christ.
After living in Houston for 2 years, I have only been to Impact twice.
Once to pick up my best friend Kelsey and take her to Chili's,
and again to do Bible Hour on a Sunday morning.
Both were amazing days in my life, but they did not prepare me for how huge Impact VBS was going to be!

There are SO MANY KIDS!!
(This isn't even all of them!)
The Impact staff told us there is usually around 300 kids!
That's alot!
In the mornings we go on bus routes to pick up the kids.
The buses go all over town and the kids run into the building with huge smiles on their faces, so excited to be at VBS.
Then we sing some songs with them, which they LOVE!
Here are a couple our our guys leading the morning singing.
The rest of the day is spent in reading class, lunch time, VBS, or a field trip.
The entire time we are going through these activities, we just get to love on these kids.
And they are so easy to love!
The are so adorable, polite, honest, and just precious.
The JV kids absolutely love them.
The Impact kids love our JV Youth group too!
It has been so special to watch our youth kids open up to these little kids in VBS.
The first day they were a little unsure at times, but today they were letting kids crawl all over them, chasing them around the building, and playing games with them all day.
Its going to be hard to say goodbye to these sweet kids!

We have been blessed even more this week because not only is the Jersey Village group working at Impact this week, but so are Memorial, Northwest, and Spring Creek!
So we get to hang out with these guys all week too!
It has been so great to work alongside these other churches.
Catching up with old friends.
Meeting new friends.
And all working together for the glory of God, and to show the love of Christ to these kids.
Thank you Impact Church of Christ for inviting us to take part in this incredible mission effort in our hometown.
I can definitely say that these kids have blessed us so more than we have them, and they don't even know it!
Great job Jersey Village Youth for your week of hard work and service for our Lord!

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." - Matthew 19:14
