We only had eight kids at Bible School last night.

:(

It makes me sad. I want kids to know Jesus and somehow we aren't getting the message to them. I feel like it is the church body's calling to bring in people and share Jesus with them, and therefore I'm partly responsible for the fact that there aren't kids there. I don't really know what to do though. Teachers in the public schools have trouble getting kids to come to school and state law requires kids to go there. If they have trouble then of course we'll have trouble... It just makes me sad that Bible School isn't valued by people enough to make them want to be part of it, or make their kids be part of it.

Please people! Send your kids to church so they can learn about Jesus!

There were no kids in the 1st and 2nd grade class I was supposed to teach, and I had been really excited about getting to know the kids and having the opportunity to tell them point blank about Jesus. It's so nice to be able to do that, since in the schools we have to do it in like a sideways, almost-sneaky manner. And Bible School used to be our big rally for getting kids to come to Sunday School and character building activities and beginner's band... Why don't people value these things? It makes me sad because I value them and I want other people to enjoy and participate in them too, but their lack of interest basically tells me that the things I value aren't worth valuing in their opinion.

I hope my Sunday School class has more than two students this year! I've been telling Noah to bring his friends...

Ironically, today divisional leaders came and recognized the success of our Sunday School.

Do you hear the Battle Cry?



The world for God! The world for God!
There's nothing else will meet the hunger of my soul.
I see forsaken children, I see the tears that fall
from women's eyes, once merry, now never laugh at all;
I see the sins and sorrows of those who sit in darkness;
I see in lands far distant, the hungry and oppressed.
But behold! On a hill, Calvary! Calvary!

The world for God! The world for God!
I give my heart! I'll do my part!
The world for God! The world for God!
I give my heart! I'll do my part!


The world for God! The world for God!
I call to arms the soldiers of the blood and fire:
Go with the Holy Bible. Its words are peace and life
To multitudes who struggle with crime and want and strife.
Go with your songs of mercy, show Christ in loving kindness,
Make known the sufferings of the cross, the sacrifice of God;
For behold! On a hill, Calvary! Calvary!

The world for God! The world for God!
For this, dear Lord, give to my soul consuming fire.
Give fire that makes men heroes, turns weakness into might,
the fire that gives the courage to suffer for the fight,
the fire that changes fearing to pentecostal daring,
the fire that makes me willing for Christ to live or die;
For behold! On a hill, Calvary! Calvary!

Woot! How are you all?
Hows your churches going?

Mines been good, we've had our prayer room open for the last 4 weeks none stop and its ultra cool.

This week the youth group is running the service which will be fun-tastic and we've been running fortnightly night services which have been going fab too.

We're also fundraising for Kaivata, a tri-territorial youth congress in Fiji next year. It will be, NZ Fiji and Tonga territory and the two Australian territories too. It should rock! Anyway! Hope your all going fab!

haha, random, but look at the picture on the cake & you'll see why it had to be posted.
Karen is a little girl in our corps who turned 11 [duh] yesterday and tonight, during band practice, the bandmaster and all his little friends threw her a party and we all got to share that ^ cake. It was very cute ♥
Hope you're all well xo
