We had our third meeting of the year yesterday. We started out with some very yummy food and great fellowship. Then we did our standard announcements, devotion, and mom of the day. Then due to our speaker's schedule, we jumped to small group time. During small group, the time was split between prayer requests (and praying) and talking about the upcoming craft fair. The craft fair is our only fundraiser, so it takes as many hands on deck as possible to make it a success!
Our speaker for the day was a nurse with First Choice . She talked to us about the things we can do to help stay healthy even during the respiratory virus season that is upon us. She also talked about nutrition and CPR for adults, children, and infants. There was even time to try out CPR on dummies as well as look at a mini defibrillator system she brought.
October Playdates - Tuesday the 22nd we will be going ot a pumpkin patch (Rio Grande, Wagner, or Galloping Grace). Tuesday the 29th will be small group play dates.
Craft Fair - Set up on November 1, and the actual fair is November 2 from 9am-3pm. See your small group leader or Michelle for more information.
And more about the devotion:
Rebecca shared with us about her mission trip to Central Asia just after college. She shared who Satan was making her doubt her affectiveness there, making her feel like a failure to God, herself, and those that had supported her. And then right near the end of the trip, she was able to share the Gospel with her only native friend and her sister. These two had been praying for someone to come share Christ with them for years. They remember a missionary couple having dinner with them once as children and the special relationship they seemed to have with God. Her trip wasn't a failure; God was just waiting for His perfect timing. We need to remember that was may look like a mess to us in the moment will look different later.
