Our goal was two fold with these schools: 1. to connect students with our partnering pastor's church & to give them a good face within the community 2. to expose students to the gospel...we couldn't share all that we wanted, but through mini-testimonies we talked openly about Jesus which most likely was the first some of these students have ever heard. I'll let our pictures share the rest of our experience!
2. A random game of some sort
This game was courtesy of Joe Reed...it was called "find the Thai"
3. Getting students' teachers involved - students love to see their teachers act goofy
Heather Reed does the Macarena with students
5. And if all else fails...bring out Chubby Bunny! It's a crowd pleaser EVERY time!
So, I think that they liked us, which is good...but if I'm completely honest, part of me hates these performances on mission trips because sometimes they mess up our thinking so that we start to think that missions is about us...I understand that we are sharing what Christ did in our hearts and connecting students with a church, which is why I will continue to do school performances anytime a pastor asks...but...it's my prayer that sometime - when they are at home or daydreaming in class - that these kids can forget about the cool Americans and that something we said will spark a question or a desire to search a little more...
So, if you think about it, pray with me today that at least one of the students we met will start to question and think and then seek some answers about Jesus.
