The Flames

Tonight was our first night of youth group with the 4-11 year olds. The name of their group is "The Flames". We all met up at Jesus for Jamaica's clinic @ 7:00pm. We didn't have all the power hooked up yet so we were working with a couple of lamps and a candle. But it sure made for a nice setting. Eighteen children showed up. Some of the older kids came too. I guess they were just so excited they

came a day early. LOL :-) A couple of Mom's stayed, which was very helpful.
We started the night off with a CD of kids christian music, then a introduction and an overview of our plans with both the youth groups. When all of a sudden Mazur the monster showed up. And with a pencil in his mouth to boot. Jenni just looked at mazur with a puzzled look on her face, and wondering what in the world he was doing. Well he said he wasn't born with an eraser in his mouth, so he was trying to get the eraser from the pencil to stay in his mouth to erase some bad things he said to some friends. It was soooooooooooooo good, and the kids loved it.
After the puppet show, Jenni took the kids over and had them play a game. Then we all broke out in song and dance. All in all I think it went fantastic! Dontae was in his front pack the entire time, and I think he loved it too. Enjoy the pictures of our first night. Please pray for us for tomorrow night. We have the older kids, and we want to make enough of an impact that they will want to come back.
