Spray paint and service

I am a disgrace!! I have not written one new post for the year 2011. It is time to end that!

We, as a youth group at the church, have just done our first service project. The local Play School (pre-school) in the town needed some spiffing up. The kids didn't have any hop-scotch or snakes and ladders on the cement outside in the playground, so we went over there and painted away! The woman who is in charge of the play school is not a believer and this has been a great way to build a relationship with her and for the students in the youth group to do some service. I believe that when we begin to serve we take the focus off of ourselves and onto Christ. This is what I hope the students will learn and begin to love.

I must say, we had a lot of fun spray painting the playground!
This is just the beginning of many projects I hope.
