Advent – Day 11

We had a Christmas party for both the teachers and students of our ESL classes. It was a fun night of fellowship and getting to know each other outside of the classroom. We played bingo and exchanged gifts. Some of the Somalian ladies brought samosas and one of our Chinese students brought some wraps. I have really enjoyed being a part of this and thankful to the Lord for the opportunity to teach.

Our MC has really connected with the assisted living home at Elmcroft. We put on a worship service every month and now we are splitting up into teams and going over to help with games and other activities. It’s good for me to be stretched in this way because I have never had much of a heart for serving the elderly. So I am thankful God is changing my attitude and growing me. Today I was Bingo host and Michael and I had a good time connecting with some of the people there.

Had an amazing Second Saturday yesterday. I normally take a team to Liberty House, but today I got to go to the Watkins Overflow Shelter. Twelve us headed out to Phoenix. Watkins is an emergency shelter that is currently housing a hundred women and about forty families. We spent the first part of the day sorting out clothing that was donated. Then we got to spend some time playing games like bingo and doing crafts with the kids. These women and families are really going through some tough stuff.  Getting a chance to play a small part in bringing a little joy to their day was an amazing experience for all of us.

Candace Cameron and her husband Val Bure were the guest speakers at Friend Day today. We got to go back to two of the homeless shelters that we visited yesterday and bring them to Friend Day. We filled up both vans and brought them to church. Then we fed them lunch after service. It was awesome to see the joy on their faces.
