I was sick soon after Christmas and very sick New Year’s until the first of last week so I haven’t been with the children until yesterday in this new year. I missed them! (Even though for close to two weeks I was pretty out of it) We had a very good day, learning more about Jesus and all the names He has been called and has called Himself. When I asked if anyone would like to color there was almost pandemonium! It is certainly humbling to see children get excited over getting to color – that is not something most of them get to do often or have ever done. And I was very impressed at how artistic some were in their coloring, I guess their use of color combinations shouldn’t be surprising when I consider all the colorful clothes they wear! I didn’t take the pictures, I am thankful Derrick did. I was busy losing my mind over marker caps not being put back on them! Constantly going round and round the tables looking for caps and markers without caps! They have no concept that the markers will not work anymore if they dry out! I was also very impressed at how many remembered names of Jesus that we had learned a while ago. I am so thankful to be back among the land of the living and blessed to be with the kids again!
