Hanging out with kids

For the past couple of weekends our family has had the opportunity to help out at a local center for at-risk children. This is a place where kids from neighboring countries come to spend their Saturdays. Most of them are very poor. When the kids come, we sing songs and play lots of really fun (and sweaty) games. The afternoon always wraps up with a Bible teaching and a delicious hot meal.

This week the Edwards family took the lead by facilitating the aforementioned sweaty games. The first was “Horse, Prince, and Baby.” It’s a gem!

Next up was “The knot game.” An oldie, but a goody I learned back in high school.

 Next was a Bible lesson taught by our very own Eden! She thought it was pretty cool to speak using a translator.

We ended with a favorite among children the world over…..balloon animals! Also, other strange and colorful fashion accessories.



It really has been wonderful to be able to partner with this ministry that is already taking place here in Thailand. We have been well received and a we’re so grateful for a gift of perspective.The kids are developing a sense of the importance of reaching across cultural boundaries to share God’s love. 🙂

    I did NOT see NO animals in those balloons. (Yes, I’m aware that was grammatically incorrect, but you hear the ghetto in it)

    Miss you guys. Glad you are having such a great time.

    So VERY cool that Eden had a chance to share from God’s Word. I pray that the seeds were planted in good soil and will grow up to produce healthy fruit! Looks like you all are having a really wonderful time.
