Trying New Things!
The Director of Activities asked if some ladies from our class would be interested in starting a cheer leading team that we could practice with and eventually take to a local high school game in the Fall to do some cheers. Thank God we have a college cheerleader in our class and asked her to get us started. Thanks to Mandy who came up with cheers that we could all do that wouldn't throw out anyone's hips or be too much for the uncoordinated (and that is just talking about me!). At the end of our first practice run with the ladies, our kids sang some songs for the ladies. This really ministered to these women. One woman shared with a fellow classmate that her family did not ever come to visit her and she just enjoyed having us there. She even hugged and kissed everyone as they left that night.
Amazing that God can use the smallest of efforts to make a big impact on someone else!
Please keep us in your prayers as we try to make sure we keep our school, family life, outreach and get togethers nicely balanced so that we don't burn out before the semester is even over.
We are ENJOYING every moment that we have here!! Our fellow classmates and staff/teachers are just a great group of people!
Thank you all for your wonderful love, support, prayers and encouragement during the exciting time in our lives!!
