On Sunday January 30 we got to go perform for the children's church at Word of Life Assembly of God. We did Living Hope and shared with them the story of the persecuted church in China. We have performed here in the past and each time it is such a treat - the kids are very well-behaved and responsive, and there's a little stage with lights we get to perform on...and Miss Karen, our contact there, blesses us so much as well. She has such a gift for working with these kids, and you can tell Jesus really shines through her as she ministers to them!
Everything went pretty well dancing-wise. However, one of my favorite parts was at the end of the performance, after Ashley shared her testimony, Miss Ashley (Rollinson) wanted the kids to show they were willing to stand up for Jesus, and had them stand on their chairs as we did our final song, "Never Let Go." And not only did they stand on their chairs, they also sang along and did motions to it as well! They were worshiping right along with us, and it was awesome.
Afterward we got the chance to pray for any of the kids who wanted prayer, which was great. We also taught them some ballet steps - I got to work with some of the boys and they all did really good! And were very enthusiastic as well; that was fun! I am so excited that we got to share with these precious kids again this year - what a privilege to challenge them in their faith! I'm praying that the story of Qing in Living Hope would stay with them and they would continue to grow in their Christian walk as they attend the children's church there.
