Some weeks after Tuesday jr youth and wednesday sr youth are done, I wonder what I’ve gotten myself into. Sometimes (not too often) it seems like games crash and burn (usually not literally), people aren’t connecting, and Bible studies seem to bounce right off. This was not one of those weeks.
In both sr and jr youth this week, I was super impressed with the youth and leaders. God was there in the fun and the serious. Jr high is super creative and always seems to give 100%. Such great hearts and God is at work. In Sr high, I was super blown away by youth sharing their stories this week. It may have only been short (3 square testimonies) stories, but the willingness to open up with some tough stuff, exciting stuff, and ways God is at work was really encouraging. If you are a youth reading, thanks for being awesome. If you are a parent or other important person, be encouraged that your young people are growing and God is at work in their lives.
