This is exactly what I didn't want to happen, but as always I'm bad at estimating how quickly I'll get things done. Just ask Christine about the mammoth of a project I just finished in the back porch.
So to the point. Last Sunday as well as this Sunday were incredible with my "pre-jotas"(middle schoolers). I've never seen a group of kids that are so hungry to truly learn about Christ, what it means to follow him, fight with the text and ask some pretty darn good questions.
For some reason when I see anyone fighting/wrestling with any idea, system, concept etc. it puts me at peace. The information is moving something in them and that's a whole lot better than just letting information fall into the vast chasm of "this doesn't mean diddly squat" in the rear of our brains.
I'm even a bit nervous to admit it...I see this in a vast majority of our kids, the something moving in them not the "diddly squat". Because once it's spoken, watch them flake off into us who at times hear but don't apply, understand but don't change, or read and aren't affected.
Like I said last week, we're finishing up a unit on Basic Fundamentals.
Week 1 The Fall and Mercy
Week 2 Forgiveness
Week 3 Salvation part 1
Week 4 Salvation part 2
We throw different verses, videos and ideas at them through our Face group and give them something to investigate about during the week. So yeah, I actually like the Face for this sort of communication that we've got with the "cabrochicos".
April we'll be starting on our next mini Unit of Galatians. Eccles, my co-partner in crime, will lead off the first two weeks and I'll finish off the last two.
Pray for the kids, Eccles and I, that we'd be receptive to the Spirit, willing to change where it's needed and have eyes and courage to see how to apply and truly live what we preach/think.
