This past week our kids attended Kids Clubs. What’s that you ask? I’m glad you did, that’s our church’s version of VBS, a week long Sunday School class. And I in all of my wisdom volunteered to be in charge of the food for our site for the week, but it ended up being a good opportunity for family discipleship as my kids helped me out and learned what it is like to serve others.
So my dining room table looked like this for the week, but it all helped with teaching kids to serve others
And my van looked like this. It’s food for approximately 200 people. We sliced a lot of oranges, and served a lot of cookies.
Yes, that is 30 pizzas in my car, and we had NO leftovers.
Everyone pitched in to help. They carried pizzas, they handed out food, they helped carry bags of ice and carry gallons of water.
God answered one of our biggest prayers.
We got a cool front. The first day the weather was 100 something, and then it rained that night. After that it was at least 10-5 degrees cooler. I don’t think we broke 100 for the rest of the week.
In the end, all of the exhaustion, frayed tempers, spilled gravy was worth it. I think the hardest part of it all isn’t to be a Martha in a Mary situation.
