The St.John's Kids Camp
So after the block party, 25 college students moved into our neighborhood for the week to serve the kids all on spring break. They did a kids camp at a local church in our neighborhood. 100 volunteers met them each morning to help with the kids throughout the week. I can't even begin to write about all the stories of this last week....but let me tell you, this army of students is on the go to give the hope of Jesus both in word in deed here in Austin! These guys gave me great hope for my own children, that they are leading away of pushing back darkness and making a way for God's redemption and restoration of all peoples!
The camp was every morning until 2pm and then they ate dinner that evening and came to our house for a time of debrief and teaching from Stew. It was the greatest joy to have them enter our house and to see many of them during the day and hear of what God was doing at the camp and in their hearts.
There was a couple and young woman that stayed with us a few nights as they were in town to speak to the team. They do city ministry in Las Vegas and Ft.Worth. They are AMAZING Jesus people! We couldnt' get enough of them....they got to enter our family life for a few days and we got to sit and talk about what God has done and is doing in their life! Aaron, Morgan and keri!! We love you guys and were honored to have you in our home!!
This week has been a gift to us, indeed and a step further towards knowing our neighbors and seeking to just be followers of Jesus around them. PRAISE HIM!!!
