So every year our city (Oakley) puts on a little festival. I don't know what it's for, but our church usually has a booth set up for outreach. It's really fun actually! We have people fill out Bible study surveys, and try to get people to come to our church!
This is what the booth looked like. It was better looking in person.
If you look closely, you can see the star of this picture. The flower. Lol
That balloon flower took so long to make! I was seriously proud of myself for making it!
High five Trin!
You know what's funny though, The pride of making that dumb balloon flower got to my head. Right after I made it I was all showing everyone, and then this little girl comes up to our booth and out of all the balloons we could have made she wanted MY balloon flower! I gave it to her. Haha
Moral: don't get a big head about things you make. They're not that cool. Lol.
I think this is when my finger started to bleed.
I think it's funny, Like what in the world her finger started bleeding because she tied to many balloons? Hahah I guess those balloons meant business.
Sasha, getting her finger workout. Lol
Bell, Jen, and I.
Okay so after my fingers almost nearly died from tying all those balloons, I decided to help Sis. Connell. All we had to do was give out free waters. We started to get bored using the same line over and over (Free Water!) So we go creative. Haha
"Free Ice water!
Get your Ice cold refreshing water!
Haha some people thought it was funny.
Lol can you see what I'm holding?
Yeah I bought one. They are actually pretty entertaining!
This pic was taken during our break. We were so tired! You don't even know. Haha
My flower.. Hahah
Okay so this young boy walks up to our booth with his friend. He was looking at our booth with curiosity. He asked what church is this? Sis. Halstead told him and then he asked where our church is at. She told him. He seemed interested. (And little boys don't really do this). Then she asked do you guys go to church anywhere? And the boy answer and said yes... my dad is a pastor at Golden hills. (I was like woooow.) I really got my hopes up! Lol I thought this little boy was interested in our church. But no his dad is pastor at a church that doesn't even have the full truth! Haha. (Okay Sorry, I thought that was a little funny).
I don't know why, just seeing kids hungry for God and having a desire to please Him. Touches my heart. Because they have so much potential, and when they're young they are so open to hear, receive, and believe. And to see God work in kids and plant them in the truth, will help keep them when they're older. Just seeing God use them when they're young is precious to me.
But anyways, after a very hot hard working day, we had a successful outreach. 135 surveys done! My fingers hurt. But the pain was worth it! I'm excited what God is going to do! We have hungry people out there, and I just pray that God uses us to do his work.
