Wondering what difference kids can make in the world? Ask twenty-five of our third, fourth and fifth graders! We just spent a week together serving others and having a great time during Missions Week. Each morning we learned about a different organization doing good work in Greenville – and we joined in with them when we could! We gleaned a strawberry field, toured both the Greenville Free Medical Clinic and United Ministries, and enjoyed the hospitality of the Othman family, whom our very own church sponsored many years ago when they emigrated from Kurdistan. The afternoons were full with lunch and fun. We went bowling, explored the Children’s Museum, made mugs with potter Darin Gehrke, and had a pool party at Mrs. Doris Clanton’s home. That’s not all! We took moments in between all our traveling to learn Bible verses, hear stories and work on our Missions scrapbooks, filling them with reflections and memories. Ask a child you know to share theirs with you!
