The evening was lots of fun and it was great to see the kids having fun, cheering for each other, and enjoying each other. I think our team eventually won, but in the end, we weren't really paying attention to the score total. The kids were talking about the game over the next week and were asking when we will have the next Eat It, especially the ones who didn't make it that night. Playing games with the youth is loads of fun and it's always great when we have game nights with the youth.

This past week, we had a bunch of the fifth graders over to the Church to welcome them into the youth group. It was a happy evening mixed with a tinge of sadness. For the past two years, I've worked with the boys in my small group and was proud of them but also kind of sad to see them moving on. We had 7 boys there that evening and another 3 who we couldn't find and it was a great evening of fun and games. They really enjoyed it and did great later in the week at youth group with the older high school students. I was excited about getting them into youth group because they've been looking forward to it since they found out there was a youth group :) Over the next month, we’ll be trying to get them into Discipleship Groups.

Here’s a picture of my new van and me. Five years ago, I would not have imagined myself driving a minivan, but it’s a good vehicle and I need to drive people around sometimes. Thanks to everyone who chipped in and helped me get it! It's amazing to see the generosity of God's people and His provision.
Teams arrived over the weekend and we’ve begun working with them. This first team is from
We are having our first youth group at the new building this Tuesday and we're really excited about it. A couple of folks have been working with Bill to get it ready and it looks awesome. We've had youth group before, but never at the new building, so it's a big step to begin having regular meetings there! I'll post some pictures soon...

This past Tuesday, we did a craft that the kids LOVED. We made twisty pillows out of flannel with cool patterns like: camo, firemen, horses, hearts, puppies, footballs, bumblebees, and flowers. We had about 40 children, and it was a great night. The kids were SO happy and loved hugging their pillows. One boy said, “I’m going to use and sleep on my pillow all day.”

This past Thursday, we had a bunch of the youth together for Game Night, and it was the most fun we’ve had during a youth event. We played “Snort,” “Psychiatrist,” and “Eat It.” I was one of three who tied for the win in Snort, a game where you snort at your neighbor, and they can’t laugh/smile or they’re out. It was so much fun, and everyone was belly laughing and smiling. Psychiatrist was fun, but a bit difficult for everyone to get.

We had a ton of snow over the past week, about 14 inches in 2.5 days. Much of it has melted now. I was stranded in the building for 3.5 days until Chris G came and rescued me. It was kinda fun being out there for a while by myself and cut off from most technology, but I think I might have lost it if I was out there too long. I posted a couple of pictures here for you. Also, here’s a shout out to Pete :)
