What we do on Tuesdays part2. Pancake Tuesday!

So Tuesday was a extra special day at kids club it was also pancake Tuesday! Yes pancake day is a real holiday, you can only imagine how excited I was since pancakes is one of my very favorite foods. I mean really who doesn't like pancakes!? It was a extra fun day at Kids club since every one was looking forward to a day full of pancakes and crepes. I took a few pictures for you guys to see of are day, On a side note I want to mention since this is the internet I am not allowed to show pictures of the kids on any of my media sites including my blog. But I did think It would be nice to at least to show you guys what the building looks like and some of the stuff we did that day. In the pictures above you can see Bernie and Michaela having worship and studying Bible verses with the kids and the Valentine's craft we did. One little girl in club wrote the Bible verse she memorized in her Valentine card she made for her parents. I love hearing the kids tell me that they like telling others about Jesus!

What we have been learning on Tuesday mornings.

So I am just going to be honest I am no artist! I love photography but I am not good with a pencil or a paint brush. But luckily Sketching doesn't require a lot of painting talent, For the next several weeks Darcy and I will be learning how to use this Gospel sharing tool and how to preach the story at the same time! this takes some focus believe it or not ahaha:) By the summer we should be good and ready to take on Sketching! 

Rain or shine smile bright in your puffy rain jacket:)

Hey every one! I know its been two weeks since I have updated my blog! It has been a crazy two weeks so it is about time I would say that I need to do a very big blog post to catch you guys up on my two weeks. So Today Darcy and I did are normal church clean up like every Wen. But today our Pastor asked us to go put John 3:16 tracks in the door post and so Darcy started to head off to the houses we were planing to do and it starts to rain even harder than it already was! Feeling a bit Annoyed, cold, and wet we remembered what Pastor Aiden and Karen told us earlier at breakfast  They told us we had made a name for ourselves here in Shannon already, "we were like we did?" We haven't been here that long for people to really know us. But God works greater than we realize sometimes, They told us people started to notice us talking to people and putting tracks in doors so now we are known as the "American preacher girls" Some people would maybe upset by that but I just felt joy! Darcy and I have been here in Ireland for almost six months now and sometimes we can feel like "are we really doing anything?" sometimes you can feel like your not really impacting anyone and its hard here to talk to people and we never really ever see any one respond in a positive way but It just comes to show God is greater. It made me remember its not abut us or what we can do but It is bringing God the glory and in the biggest or simplest way He uses us even when we don't notice. Today in the mist of all the rain God brought a smile to our faces he knew we needed:) Remember even when you feel down don't give up!
