You have heard the saying the painters house is usually the one that isn't painted because the painter has been so busy painting other people's houses. Sometimes that can be said about the pastors child, missionary's child, teachers child, doctor's child ext. when it comes to their ministry needs. Because their parents are ministering to others and many times these same children are in ministry themselves we forget that they have needs too.
Last year our team had a twice a month time for the MK's (Missionary Kids) to get together for a time of fellowship and study. This time was done by the parents of the children. God put it on my heart during the summer that the children on our team needed to have a time to fellowship, learn about God and strengthen the ties they have with one another and that I needed to give the parents a little break from having to organize and make the program work.
This past week we had the first Kids Club of this year. I was thinking 8 to 12 kids and God was thinking maybe 19.
