Ping Pong Soccer

Before the lesson on Wednesday night, we had a game of ping pong soccer--soccer with ping pong balls! It was a battle between
Team Captain America
Team Morons
(they came up with the names, not me!)
There was a debate on the goal...did it make it in without getting squashed??

Chase it!! Click your heels all you want Will!
There's a score at the other end!! SCORE!

Student Life Conference

It feels like much longer than a month since our trip to the Student Life Conference in Houston! We took 9 youth to the conference to hear the words of Frances Chan and music of Kristian Stanfill. Many of them were challenged by the words Frances shared regarding Live Love.
These are just a few pictures of our van ride to Houston!

Have a great day! LIVE LOVE!

Tuesday, March 17

Several of our girls were able to attend the It's a Girl Thing! Conference in Corpus Christi the end of February. The mission statement of the conference is "to encourage teenage girls to be virtuous young women in a world that doesn't always care about moral and ethical standards." I love their mission statement and hope the girls had a great time!
Several of them were able to get a picture with Ayeisha Woods whose voice and songs blessed them during the weekend.
