I will be conducting large group Character Classes at both Voluntari and Periș. In the spring we focused on building emotional intelligence and learning to identify emotions. This fall we will be learning about how to communicate our emotions effectively and how to cope with strong emotions.
|Making some handouts for Character Class. I'll give these out to kids who I notice appropriately handling their emotions throughout the week.|
|I think I'm going to need a bigger binder for all my resources!|
We are also starting a Bible Class with the youngest kids at Periș. After summer camps this year we felt a strong leading to continue building on what these little ones had begun to learn. Since this was the first year at our summer camps for over half of our littlest kiddos it was also the first time that some of them had been exposed to God's Word in a meaningful way.
Finally, we are hoping to begin a Sunday morning program with the kids at Periș. We would have a time of singing and prayer and also a time of review of the things they had learned in Bible Class and Youth Group during the week.
|Sami and I from earlier in the summer. I'm praying that he will get involved in some of the activities we are starting in the fall.|
Continue to keep Heather, myself, our kids, and our other staff members in your prayers as we enter into this next season of serving!
