Newry's Holiday Bible Club and Summer Youth Club began on Tueday. A good number of young people attended the youth club in the evening. On Tuesday afternoon the team also carried out some litter picking around the canal in the city.
On Wednesday all the children returned to the holiday bible club which was a big encouragement and they were all well behaved.
The team also hosted a tea party in the afternoon and the hall was nearly filled by all those attending. Two polish visitors even stopped by as all the elderly people enjoyed fellowship together. They also had the opportunity to sing along to Elvis on the ukulele.
In the evening the youth club enjoyed a photo challenge around the town and some pizza before listening to a talk by Alan Keenan. He spoke from Ezekiel 16:49-50 and explained how Christian's should react to the environment.
Give thanks for the times of fun and fellowship enjoyed by those on the team and amongst those attending the events throughout the week. Give thanks that children returned to the Holiday Bible Club and fot the good attendance at the tea party.
Pray that the children and teens at both clubs would understand the message delivered to them and that it would have a spiritual impact upon them. Also pray for attendance at the Holiday Bible Club to increase if God wills.
Pray for Thuesday's speakers, Yvonne Wilson at the Holiday Bible Club and Stuart Gamble at the Summer Youth Club. Pray that God would speak through them to use their words for his own glory and the work of his kingdom.
