Today was amazing in Atlanta for me, Kristian Kirsch. The first time I went to my group’s location, I was a bit intimidated but I absolutely bonded with one of many kids, Addison. We were doing gospel bracelets for the kids there and I helped him make his, explaining the significance of the bracelet. I did a repeat-after-me prayer with him, helping him understand what it meant to follow Christ and how He loved us. I’m not entirely sure if he thought much of it, but it definitely planted a seed for the community there and I’m so excited for the future for these kids and I hope our purpose radiated into these kids in some way.
Today in Atlanta was such an inspiring experience for me, Felicia Mercer. Everyday coming into my group’s location it is always filled with lots of happiness, love, and many hugs. The happiness from the kids spreads throughout the group everyday. Today we made gospel bracelets, and while explaining what each bead had meant some kids began to connect. It was so heart warming to see some children begin to understand that God does love them and is always here with them. I am so thankful for this opportunity to see these children grow with God.
My name is Will Arthur and this is my second year in Atlanta at the Haitian Church. Today on the skit team we shared the story of Jude being healed by Jesus. His friends cooperated to bring him to Jesus and helped make an amazing miracle happen! Chloe then shared the Gospel. We sang songs and then split into three groups to do craft (Gospel bracelets), rec (lil games), and chalk/bubbles with verse memorization. Overall today went very smooth as we got to share Jesus’ love with the kids.
