Family Fun Day!!!

We had a great time during our collective community outreach event. We were a part of a group of people
putting on an outreach/fundraiser event. It was called the “family fun day”. We supplied relevant fun and
ministry to the people from the surrounding town and area that attended.
There was time of song and worship, fun activities for the children as well as lots of good food to eat. We
were blessed with the opportunity to go first in the musical line-up for the day. We ministered one song of
Dana’s, one song of Rory’s and one related worship song. During all of the festivities there were of course
more opportunities, as the Lord would have it, to make more connections and to even do one-on-one minis-
try like prayer and God honoring counsel. What a privilege it was, and so moving, to worship Christ in the
open air arena with other believers and the unsaved.
Dana was excited about how the children’s program went as she had invested herself in it during the “think
tank” part of the process. Some of the games were fishing for toys, water balloon toss, dodge-ball tourna-
ment, cake walks as well as face painting and much more.
Another special aspect was that the whole endeavor was multidenominational. Beautiful. It was a mani-
fested example of Christ’s heart for His people as He prayed for all of us to be “one as You and I are one.”
How inspiring it is when that which has separated comes down and Christ is honored above our man made
The event was also a fundraiser for the organization that runs both the soup kitchen and the food bank in
the local town. The Lord blessed the event with a big turn out and funds were indeed raised. Hallelujah!!!
