Thankfully, we have the facilities to create a new class. After school on Fridays, my students just stack their laptops on a table in the corner and the youth class is held right here in our school classroom. It works out great!
I was there taking pictures for this first youth class. Abner invited Pastor up to pray over the new class and the kids.
This was when Austin had first broken his leg...you can see his toes sticking out on the left.
For his first lesson, Abner gave his testimony and told the kids a little more about himself. Of course they all already know him and think he is Mr. Cool, but hadn't heard the details of his personal testimony.
I've known Abner since we were both kids and have witnessed many of his young person trials. I thought I knew everything, but it turns out I didn't and he even made me tear up telling his testimony. (You know it was good if he made ME cry.)
I prepared a game for the class - thanks to Amanda Diaz! She gave me the idea. You wrap a prize really well then pass it around to be unwrapped for a certain amount of time by the person wearing cooking mitts. It's very difficult and so funny!!!!
To finish out the class, the kids sat around chatting and eating nachos.
Last Sunday this class had two new visitors. We are looking forward to seeing this group grow and winning more young people to the Lord!
