Every morning on the Milford & Letterkenny GO Team begins with prayer and today was no different. We firmly believe that unless God works, we are wasting our time in every activity we organise. Today we began with a period of adoration before praying for the members of Milford by name and committing the days activities to the Lord.
This morning we began our Holiday Bible Club, held in one of the housing estates in Milford. We were thrilled by the turnout, with 22 children getting stuck into the games and listening enthusiastically to the talk. This morning, Stuart Fallows challenged them with the parable of the rich fool.
After the club, there was just enough time for lunch and a quick rehearsal before we headed to the church for the inaugural meeting of The Lunch Bunch for afternoon tea. The congregation is considering developing this into a regular event and are hoping that it will be an encouragement to the members of the church as well as providing opportunities to reach out to others in the community.
Give thanks for how 27 people came along! They really enjoyed the food, the music, and the quiz that some of the members of the GO Team prepared.
In the evening we were treated to a beautiful meal in the home of a family from Letterkenny and we enjoyed getting to know them better.
After dinner we had the second evening of Summer Youth Club. Unfortunately heavy rain and dramatic lightning meant beach games and ice cream wasn't a great option, so we hastily came up with a plan B of indoor games and hot chocolate. Thankfully the weather didn't hinder us and the young people had a great night.
Tomorrow Patrick Hamilton will speak to the children at Holiday Bible Club about the parable of the pharisee and the tax collector. In the afternoon the team will be giving out invitations to church in Letterkenny and in the evening we plan to play footgolf with the youth group. Thanks for all your prayers for our work this week.
