24 Hour Famine

Tomorrow we start our 24 hour famine. The kids are all up in arms about not eating, but they are only really missing 2 meals (supper and breakfast). I am excited about getting a chance to teach about fasting, but I am most excited about teaching on missions. As much as I have a heart for missions and missionaries I don’t often speak about it to my youth. That is something that I am trying to remedy, and this weekend will be a big part of that. We are having 3 sessions using stuff from the IMB (that is the International Mission Board for you non-Southern Baptist out there). I hope to produce in my students at least a respect for those people who are in other countries telling others about Jesus. My ultimate goal is that one or actually all of them will see the need and follow God’s call to missions. How cool would that be!
